Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi admitted Tuesday that she had her hair done in a San Francisco salon that was closed due to coronavirus restrictions, but claimed she did not know it was a violation.
Fox News reported, "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited a San Francisco hair salon on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News had learned."
"In security footage obtained by Fox News, and timestamped Monday at 3:08 p.m. Pacific Time, the California powerhouse is seen walking through eSalon in San Francisco with wet hair, and without a mask over her mouth or nose."
"The stylist doing her hair can be seen following her wearing a black face mask," the report noted.
"Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only."
After she got caught, how did her office respond?
Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill told Oakland, California-based Fox affiliate KTVU, “The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements. This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business. The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment.”
The business owner told Fox News that Pelosi’s assistant had sent a message asking for an appointment.
The owner also called Pelosi’s actions since getting caught “a slap in the face.”
