MADISON — A wash and blow for me, but not for thee!
That’s apparently U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s motto.
The California Democrat, who has derided President Donald Trump for not wearing a mask during the pandemic, was outed this week for stopping by the beauty shop for a wash and a blow dry — in defiance of local ordinances banning customers from inside hair salons.
In security footage obtained by Fox News and timestamped Monday at 3:08 p.m. Pacific Time, Pelosi is seen walking through eSalon in San Francisco with wet hair, and without a mask over her mouth or nose.
Her stylist is wearing a facial covering in the clip.
Salons in San Francisco, closed since March, were allowed to open this week, but only for outdoor hairstyling services.
Pelosi did what self-serving hypocrites do: she blamed the salon owner, insisting that she was “set up” and that she is owed an apology.
Her freshly coiffed temper tantrum followed Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill’s statement that the speaker was following the rules as presented to her.
“The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements. 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,” he told Fox News.
Video footage clearly shows the lecturing liberal doesn’t always wear a mask.
Maybe Pelosi is just a coward. That’s how she has characterized the president.
“And not wearing a mask himself as an example to the country? How cowardly is that?” she told National Public Radio in June. “It’s about protecting yourself. It’s about protecting others.”
And on Monday, the same day she did the ‘do, Pelosi went on MSNBC and railed against Trump for a lack of mask wearing by the president and others during his nomination acceptance speech — outdoors — last week at the Republican National Convention.
“What further evidence does anyone need that this president didn’t care less about the spread of this virus than to see what he did,” she spewed. “Bringing all those people there, no masks, no distancing, and the rest. He slapped science right in the face.”
Her liberal political pals have sounded just as indignant.
Gov. Tony Evers last month warned Trump he’d better wear a mask during a campaign stop. The Democrat issued his mask mandate more than a month ago.
“My expectation is they’re masking up,” Evers told reporters. “They’re going to follow the order. And that’s our expectation as a state.”
“If you want to follow an ideology, you’ve got plenty of people who are in leadership positions in the federal government that are telling us: ‘Wear a freakin’ mask.”
How’s he feel about Nancy with the mask-less face? We asked Evers’ handlers.
“Does the governor have any comment on reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not only violated local health ordinances by getting her hair done at a salon, but was seen not wearing a mask?” Empower Wisconsin wrote in an email to the governor’s comms team. “We at Empower Wisconsin know how important mask-wearing is to the governor. He’s called out the president for not wearing a mask on multiple occasions, so it would seem he would be as outraged with the Speaker’s failure to follow health orders related to COVID-19 and her refusal to wear a mask.”
We’re still waiting for a response.
