"Rules for thee, but not for me": Pelosi's colossal hypocrisy

“We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can’t – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless and honestly beaten down,” Kious said. “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,” she continued. “The fact that they did this, and she came in, it’s like a slap in the face.”

...“Security footage taken from the small business and provided to Fox News appears to confirm the salon owner’s allegation, showing the leading House Democrat with wet hair and no mask walking through the shop on Monday,” The Daily Wire reported earlier on Tuesday. “Hair salons across the city were allowed to open for outdoor services only on Monday for the first time since March.”

“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,” eSalon owner Erica Kious told Fox News. “We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? … It is just disturbing.”

The Daily Wire noted, “While salons have been allowed to open in limited capacity, stylists still are ‘not supposed to blow dry hair’ according to coronavirus safety guidelines, Kious said. The government also mandates that masks be worn at all times inside the salon itself.”

***BREAKING*** House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused a San Francisco hair salon of setting her up just two days after she got a wash and blow-out — without a mask. Pelosi added that the business, which has been shuttered for months due to local coronavirus restrictions, owes her an apology. Her explanation had some saying she pulled a “Marion Barry” — a reference to the former D.C. mayor who famously said, “Bitch set me up” following a drug bust. On Wednesday, Pelosi addressed the controversy over her Monday salon appointment and accused the salon of setting her up. “I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times and that when they said, what, we’re able to accommodate people one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that,” she said. “As it turns out, it was a setup,” she concluded. So I take responsibility for falling for a setup.” The Speaker also said the salon owes her an apology for “setting [me] up”: Pelosi came under fire after a San Francisco salon owner, who rents out chairs to independent stylists, revealed to Fox News that the Speaker obtained salon services this week, despite local coronavirus restrictions locking down salons. “I was like, are you kidding me right now? Do I let this happen? What do I do?” salon owner Erica Kious told Fox News upon learning of Pelosi’s request for an appointment. “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,” the single mom added.
