Pelosi went to get her hair done.
SAN FRANCISCO — A testy Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday she takes responsibility for trusting the word of a San Francisco hair salon that it was OK to come in for a solo visit — even though the city still does not allow indoor beauty services because of the coronavirus pandemic.
But the Democratic House Speaker called Monday’s visit a “set-up” and said the salon owes her an apology for misrepresenting city health orders.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times, and that when they said … we’re able to accommodate people one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday. “As it turns out, it was a set-up.”
“I take responsibility for falling for a set-up,” she said.(continued here (abcnews.go.com))
Was it it set up? Well, the lawyer for her hair stylist says it was. abcnews.go.com continues.
An attorney for the man who did her hair also said Pelosi appeared to have been set up.
Matthew Soleimanpour said his client received permission from the salon owner a day earlier to make the appointment.
During that telephone call the owner, Erica Kious, “made several vitriolic and incendiary comments about Speaker Pelosi,” Soleimanpour said in a statement.
“It appears Ms. Kious is furthering a set-‐up of Speaker Pelosi for her own vain aspirations,” the statement said. (from here (abcnews.go.com))
Still, it is kind of weird how Pelosi takes responsibility. Cannot make these things up.
Here is the salon owner.
How was Pelosi “set up”? The hair stylist is obviously on her side. Did she follow his directions? Either the COVID-19 rules make sense or they don’t. Either Pelosi obeyed the rules or she did not. If Pelosi did not follow the rules, then who is to blame?
It is a fact that Democrat politicians have been caught numerous times in strange contradictions. My favorite is that they have declared churches non-essential. We can go to Walmart, Target, grocery stores, and so forth, but we cannot go to church using the same ground rules?
Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phillip Murphy said the Bill of Rights was not on his mind when he issued his executive orders mandating his state’s response to the coronavirus.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson pressed Murphy on the constitutionality of his recent executive orders that deem liquor stores essential and business and churches nonessential, which Murphy said he did not consider.
“As I noted before, 15 congregants at a synagogue in New Jersey were arrested and charged for being in a synagogue together. Now, the Bill of Rights, as you well know, protects Americans’ right, enshrines their right, to practice their religion as they see fit and to congregate together, to assemble peacefully. By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this order? How do you have the power to do that?” Carlson asked.
“That’s above my pay grade, Tucker,” Murphy responded, saying he “wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this.”
“Well, I can tell,” Tucker interjected. (continued here (washingtonexaminer.com))
Without politics, can you imagine how comedy would suffer? Can you imagine how many comedians would be unemployed?

She is the perfect example of the “let them eat cake” politician. Unfortunately she will continue to be re elected by a landslide until she decides to exit the stage.
Another case of mind-numbing hypocrisy. Nancy ought to use this opportunity to tell Newsom to open up California. After all, she obviously feels it’s safe. Same with De Blasio walking his dog in NYC without a mask. Right now, owners like Erica Kious have a right to be angry. These people’s politicized policies are killing their businesses. Many of these will never come back and they don’t care the least. It’s all about getting power in November. Kious mentioned moving out of SF. Good for her. I hope she does well wherever she goes.
Agreed. Until Obama got a second term, I never thought I would see anything like this. When the founders said only a moral people could maintain a republic like ours, they were deadly serious.
The times we live in gives one an inkling of just how corrupt the world must have been before the Great Flood. God flooded the world because He is merciful. Who would want to live in a totalitarian state like N. Korea? Can you imagine something far worse? Did Orwell fully conceive of evil men can do when they are turned wholly to Satan? I doubt it.
We are doing things, like wrecking our election system that are obviously utterly reckless. If sanity is not soon restored, ….. All I know is that many people will die. Our society is too fragile to be run by a selfish and haughtily arrogant people.
Loved this from Julie too, “The bottom line, set up or not, she never should have put the owner in that position.”
Precisely! Good leadership would simply take one for the team. That the honorable and noble thing to do. The buck stops here. Shame on ME for getting “set up.” I take full responsibility.
Nobody is comforted by her Marie Antoinette moment. The woman just a few heartbeats away from the presidency was alleged set up and deceived by a hairdresser?? If that were true, I am not feeling like she is ready to handle negotiations with China. 🙂
Don’t worry. Won’t be those kind of negotiations. Pelosi is quite capable of selling us out to China.

Terrifying Tom, absolutely terrifying. 🙂
It seems like half the population wants to vote for its own enslavement. That is kind of scary.

The bottom line, set up or not, she never should have put the owner in that position.— what’s good for the goose…
If it’s not open for the average Joe, it’s not open to her— plain and simple. Do not ask nor expect special allowances because of your position— if she wants her hair done, let everyone get their hair done— set up or not, she is the one at fault— never would be a thing had she not asked for an exception—
Welcome to pandemic hair madame speaker— I call it a ball cap and move on—
So true. If politics as we know it were to change, there would be nothing to laugh at, to point fingers at, argue over or spend our valuable time on.
Valuable time? Yeah, we can be distracted, but honest to goodness laughter does put things back in the proper perspective.
That’s for sure ❤️
