In yet another instance of Democrats violating their own coronavirus lockdown orders, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was caught on camera getting her hair done at a closed salon.
Describing the leaked security footage of Pelosi’s salon visit, Fox News Host Tucker Carlson said: “She is not wearing a mask, but she was indoors. She was almost alone, because due to coronavirus regulations, salons in San Francisco are closed to services.”
Due to California’s strict COVID-19 lockdowns, salons are still closed, and many are closed permanently due to loss of revenue. This is true in many Democrat states throughout the country. But that hasn’t stopped the Democrat elite, like Pelosi or Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, from getting their hair done.
Lightfoot’s response to criticism was: “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye.” That statement was at least a better defense than Pelosi’s.
When confronted about the blatant hypocrisy of violating her state’s coronavirus lockdown, Nancy Pelosi had the gall to blame the salon, stating: “I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon…I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up”.
One America News Network’s Liz Wheeler commented on Pelosi’s statement on Twitter:
Always a great look for an elitist Democrat politician like Nancy Pelosi to blame a single mother business owner… because Pelosi broke the rules. Reminder: you’re still not allowed to get a blowout in a hair salon in San Francisco like Pelosi did.

Erica Kious, the owner of the salon, released the footage, and made a statement about her outrage over the incident: “I am sharing this because of what everyone in my industry, and my city, what every small business is going through right now.”
“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work… I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen. I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income.” Kious told Fox News.
Dana Loesch, former spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, was one of many conservatives who commented on the issue on Twitter:
Out of all the salons for Pelosi to sashay into while flouting lockdown and mask rules, she goes to the one owned by a single mom who can barely make ends meet anymore because of these exact regulations that Pelosi supports. https://t.co/xXcdQhZ5mx
