Speaker Pelosi under fire for receiving hair services amid salon closures

Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade went off on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi after she visited a hair salon in San Fransisco without a mask on - pointing out her hypocracy and the message it sends to those suffering amid the ongoing pandemic.

Security video footage obtained by Fox News shows Pelosi walking around the salon without a face mask.

Add to that the fact that Pelosi was directly breaking the city of San Francisco's ordinances; hair salons have been officially shuttered since March, and were only recently notified they could re-open on September 1 (that was Tuesday) for outdoor hairstyling services only. Customers are also required to wear masks while getting their hair cut. 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", spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement.

Pelosi herself, as Reuters reports, responded to Senate Republicans last week saying that their proposed new stimulus package in insufficient because it doesn't include "the funding needed for testing and tracing to crush the virus and safely reopen schools and the economy".

During the pandemic, she has always worn masks in public and has chastised Republicans for not listening to U.S. health agency guidance.

In another tweet on the topic, Trump boasted 'we will nearly certainly take back the House'. Trump was not seen wearing one publicly until July. I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income. "It is just disturbing", Kious crowed in her Fox News interview. "It gives us all this great/horrible visual to look at and say, 'Nancy Pelosi is an elitist who is totally unconcerned for working people and just cares about how she looks on national TV and Democrats don't feel your pain'".

Republicans argued that Pelosi's violation of city codes show that she was a hypocrite who felt the rules were above her, and that the restrictions in San Francisco need to be eased. "Turning her in, on tape, is a really big deal".

However, in his statement, Soleimanpour said photographs and other information show that Kious had been performing indoor services since at least April without wearing a mask, and she also had been encouraging "and nearly forcing stylists" to work. But others argued that this was one instant in the political cycle that would be quickly subsumed by the next viral moment. "It's not going to have a huge impact on the election", said Rose Kapolczynski, longtime advisor to former Sen. Late June, Pelosi called for a nationwide mandate to wear face masks to ward against the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Pelosi's staff, the Speaker was incorrectly informed by the stylist performing the blowout that the salon was permitted to have one client indoors at the salon at a time, and apparently no one knew any better.
