Yesterday, Nancy “Science, Science, Science” Pelosi was captured on presumably a surveillance video parading maskless through a Sand Francisco beauty salon. To add insult to injury, her visit for a wash and blow-out was in direct violation of a city ordinance that indoor hair salons remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was a pretty brazen act considering that the speaker has appointed herself the arbiter of what is and what isn’t scientific and has been using her bully pulpit since the pandemic hit to berate the president for not wearing a mask.
The Daily Caller reports that Erica Kious, the salon’s owner, called the visit “a slap in the face that … 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.” But a spokesman for Pelosi leaped in with some immediate damage control, telling station KTVU, “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.” Reporters didn’t confirm the accuracy of the claim, but it certainly flies in the face of Kious’s reaction to Pelosi’s visit.
You might suppose that liberal media outlets, which have been carrying water for Pelosi during her six-month crusade against violators of her iron-clad rule on mask wearing, would have egg on their face after the embarrassing incident. You’d suppose wrong.
Here’s Politico’s Carla Marinucci, who used to be an honest and trustworthy reporter.
