The moment California Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on security cameras with wet hair and without a mask in a closed beauty salon could prove to be a pivotal one in the 2020 presidential election. Her actions on Monday, August 31 were in clear violation of San Francisco’s COVID-19 safety regulations.
She has been leading the marching band of Democrats celebrating the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic while enforcing Draconian lockdowns and mask mandates.
Pelosi’s peasants went into a tailspin when news broke that the mask mandator herself was exposed traipsing around eSalon in San Francisco after she came in for a shampoo and blowout.
She was shockingly sans mask with wet hair after repeatedly and vociferously insisting publicly that it was a necessity for COVID-19 protection. Americans have a revulsion for phoniness, hypocrisy and injustice and Pelosi’s behavior embodies all three.
Californians have been suffering great inconvenience and diminished quality of life due to the punishing regulations imposed by its Democratic leaders.
One resident complained recently that “nail shops are still closed, hair salons are closed, most stores have reduced hours, indoor dining is prohibited, you have to make an appointment for everything, large gatherings are a big no-no, gyms are closed, and you can’t even go to church.”
During a June appearance on ABC’s This Week Pelosi complained that a federal mandate on masks was “long overdue,” even though it is probably unconstitutional. She bashed President Donald Trump for his aversion to mask wearing.
“The President should be an example — real men wear masks — be an example to the country, and wear the mask,” she said. She surmised that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention only recommended mask wearing because the department did not want to “offend the president.”
In July she demanded that all House members and aides wear masks on the floor after Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert tested positive for coronavirus.
Lawmakers were only permitted to temporarily take off masks when speaking and members and staff were not allowed to enter without masks.
The owner of eSalon, Erica Kious, called the speaker’s visit a “double standard” and a “slap in the face” to hairdressers in the city who have been unable to work for nearly six months.
One day after Pelosi’s visit, new regulations went into effect permitting San Francisco hairdressers to offer services outdoors for the peons with a plan to open indoor operations in October. Everyone was required to wear masks.
More than 24,000 people have signed a petition urging San Francisco Police Chief William Scott to prosecute Pelosi for “COVID violations.” Organizers set a 25,000-signature goal and the petition includes a letter addressed to Scott, which says, “Laws aren’t just for the ‘little people.’”
“Not only did Nancy Pelosi knowingly violate health ordinances, but just destroyed a business because she couldn’t take a [sic] ounce of responsibility. The salon owner gets death threats, while Pelosi has paid ZERO price for her hypocrisy.”
“At a very minimum, Nancy Pelosi must be prosecuted by San Francisco for her flaunting of COVID regulations. Now!” the petition reads.
If hypocrisy was a crime Pelosi would be facing some serious time. She may escape prosecution but her public persecution will proceed.
