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))
