Speaker Nancy Pelosi Blames Hair Salon for ‘Setup;’ ‘Owes Me Apology’

Marion Barry Defense in action

By Katy Grimes, September 2, 2020 4:06 pm

“The Best Defense is a Good Offense” is typically associated with military combat and sports. And in politics it’s called the “Marion Barry Defense.”

Former Washington D.C. Mayor Marion Barry when caught by the FBI in a hotel room with crack and a prostitute in 1990, blamed the prostitute for setting him up.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi came out swinging Wednesday, claiming she was setup and is owed an apology following the damning Fox News report and video of her with wet hair, about to get a blow-out in a San Francisco hair salon. The salon has been closed since March under coronavirus orders by Gov. Gavin Newsom and San Francisco officials.

California Globe detailed:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California was caught on security cameras visiting the San Francisco hair salon Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s business lockdown orders, and local ordinances keeping hair and nail salons closed during the coronavirus pandemic.

“It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can’t work,” San Francisco Salon owner Erica Kious told Fox News, adding that she “can’t believe” the speaker didn’t have a mask on.

Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.

Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill “maintained that the speaker was following the rules.”

“The speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements,” he said.

Except when she doesn’t wear a mask at an illegal hair styling appointment.

“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times and that when they said, what, we’re able to accommodate people one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that,” Pelosi said during a press conference.

“As it turns out, it was a setup,” Pelosi said. “So I take responsibility for falling for a setup.” Pelosi said she is owed an apology by the salon owner for the setup.

Pelosi and her spokesman claimed the salon invited Pelosi to come in on Monday. But the owner disputes this.

As California attorney Harmeet Dhillon Tweeted Tuesday, “This is bullshit. Every single woman in California knows EXACTLY where you can and cannot get your hair done. You think we are looking like this by choice?”

California Globe interviewed several salon owners who have been suffering financially with closed businesses. One owner said if one of her clients contracted COVID from her while she was “illegally working,” she was told she would have been fined $10,000.

Politico reporter Carla Marinucci appeared indignant that Fox News committed some journalism, and immediately defended Pelosi by questioning the legality of the video of Pelosi: “Have to ask upon seeing this: Is it legal in CA — a ‘two party consent’ state — to videotape someone in a private home or business without their consent?” she Tweeted.

The real blowback in this story came from Twitter to Marinucci’s asinine question.

And now the trolls are attacking salon owner Erica Kious.

“The owner of eSalon, Erica Kious who’s a single mother of two, is now being forced to shut down & relocate her business & family due to outrage & threats she is receiving after speaking out about Nancy Pelosi’s visit to her salon,” Courtney Holland of Human Events Tweeted.

  1. I can’t believe this —- the salon OWNER is taking the heat and having to go into witness protection because of what Pelosi did? And PELOSI is asking for an apology? This is too much. Miss Speaker of the House had better figure out how to blow herself out and learn how to put shoe polish on her own roots because no salon professional is going to be willing to touch her ever again.

  2. Nancy Pelosi and her nephew Gavin Newsom owe apologies to the salon owner and to the citizens of California for shutting down the state’s economy and throwing millions out of work using a virus as an excuse that is mostly lethal to the very elderly with serious underlying health issues.

  3. Erica You simply ROCK!! Please remember and be comforted by the fact u have the support of many intelligent people who can readily identify the gross hypocrisy infiltrating our society where rules made by the utterly “out of touch “ and ungodly rich , liberal elitists don’t apply to them why they attempt to eviscerate our God given inalienable rights . Their media propaganda machine has no affect on us because we actually were brought up in an era when “ critical thinking/ analysis“ was actually encouraged.. You are not only drop dead gorgeous but super intelligent and a true heroine!!!!!! Keep on rockin’ in the free world, Erica, and never give up for we “ we got your back”😎. May God forever bless and keep you, Erica, and may God bless everyone!!!👍😎🌴

  7. Notice also that Pelosi pulled an “Obama” (remember e.g. Joe the Plumber?) in doing this: She threw someone who has no resources to protect herself (the way Nancy does) into the national spotlight where the everyday citizen is harassed and threatened and hounded out of town and then has to go on a national show followed by going underground to protect herself. But to be fair all the high-profile Pelosi “spirit sisters and brothers” pull this crap on the vulnerable citizenry; you know, on the “little guys” they pretend to champion.

  8. Fancy Nancy the ice cream lady is putting small business owners out of business and now subjecting them to death threats. A simple apology is not gonna cut it. Fancy needs to do hard time.

    1. Yes, unbelievable. I think it is the art of deflection. Instead of her just giving a mea culpa and apologizing to the public for the double standard, they blame the salon owner NOT the stylist, he is free and clear from her wrath. She and her daughter are now parading a letter from a law firm hired by the stylist claiming he had the owners permission. They are purposely escalating this to ruin this business. I highly doubt the stylist thought he had to lawyer up. I am sure he was manipulated by Nancy and crew. Her daughter was once quoted to the affect of This,
      “You do not cross my mother, she will cut your head off before you know that is about to happen” Granted this is not her exact wording but it can be found.
      Bottom line it is about sheer hypocrisy and the arrogance of not taking responsibility for HER OWN ACTIONS!
