Security footage obtained by Fox News and published on Tuesday, shows the Democrat walking through eSalon in San Francisco on Monday, while a stylist follows behind wearing a mask.
Salons in the city have been closed since March, but were notified they could reopen for outdoor services starting on September 1 — the same day the footage of Pelosi was released. Salon owner Erica Kious released the security footage to Fox News and slammed the Democratic congresswoman’s decision as a “slap in the face.”
Kious explained that independent stylists rent chairs from her and she was informed by one of them on Sunday night that Pelosi would be coming in to get her hair done, despite salons being forced to remain closed.
“I was like, are you kidding me right now? Do I let this happen? What do I do?” Kious told Fox. She added she “couldn’t believe” Pelosi was also not wearing a mask.
Considering how critical Pelosi has been of President Donald Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and her own support for economic shutdowns to battle the virus, the footage casts her in a less than positive light. Unsurprisingly, many of her critics were quick to blast her as a hypocrite on social media.
Trump’s 2020 campaign also quickly seized upon the footage, referring to the California congresswoman as “No Mask Nancy!”
No Mask Nancy!
