Nancy Pelosi’s bad week is turning into a bad month. The speaker, who was captured on video last week hypocritically getting a wash and blowout at a San Francisco hair salon that is closed for business owing to the pandemic, escalated the situation by claiming she had been “set up” by the salon owner.
Now she is getting an earful from other residents of her district who are irate over another double standard. Owners of privately owned gyms and fitness facilities in San Francisco, which were ordered closed months ago again due to coronavirus, are getting wind of the fact that gyms in government buildings in the city have been open this entire time.
“It’s shocking, it’s infuriating,” Daniele Rabkin from Crossfit Golden Gate told reporters with NBC Bay Area, adding, “Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.”
Dave Karraker, who owns MX3 Fitness, is also angered by the revelation but sees a possible silver lining in it. He is quoted as saying:
What the city has unwillingly done is created this great case study that says that working out indoors is actually safe. So at this point, we’re just demanding that they allow us to have the same workout privileges for the citizens of San Francisco that the employees of San Francisco have.
