It’s what liberals always do.
When they get caught, they simply place the blame on someone else!
Caught getting her hair done while salons were supposed to be closed, Nancy Pelosi says she was set up.
And the San Francisco Chronicle even reported on Pelosi saying so:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declined to apologize Wednesday for her visit to a San Francisco hair salon that was supposed to be closed under the city’s coronavirus pandemic rules, and suggested the business had tricked her.
Pelosi said she took responsibility for falling for the “setup” to have her hair done inside the salon Monday. But the San Francisco Democrat said that if anyone owes an apology, it’s the salon.
“I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up,” she said at an event about school reopenings in San Francisco’s Noe Valley.
Pelosi’s visit to the salon set off a firestorm when Fox News posted security footage of it Tuesday. Her visit happened one day before salons in the city were allowed to open for business, but only outdoors.
The state began allowing salons and barbershops to reopen indoor service Monday, after having barred it for most of the pandemic. But individual counties can keep closures in place. In the Bay Area, San Francisco and Alameda counties are not allowing salons to have customers indoors.
Pelosi indicated that eSalon in the Marina District, where she had her hair done Monday, had given her an incorrect version of the rules.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times, and when they said, ‘We’re able to accommodate people one person at a time.’ I trusted that,” the speaker said during a combative exchange with reporters in the empty schoolyard of Mission Education Center Elementary School.
But fortunately for the salon owner, Tucker Carlson had her on his show to get the truth out!
Threats to burn down her salon?
All because Nancy Pelosi decided she's too good for the rules that she places on the rest of us.
According to CNN, even liberal Don Lemon ripped Pelosi for her salon visit:
On Wednesday, the top Democratic lawmaker accused the salon of "setting her up" and called on the struggling business to apologize to her.
Lemon seemed to question Pelosi's story and asked his viewers "shouldn't she know better?"
"This far into the pandemic this House Speaker should know what is safe and what isn't," Lemon said. "We should all know. It's our responsibility."
The liberal anchor continued, "Instead of claiming a set-up, it would have been just as easy for the speaker to say, 'You know what, I messed up. I should have worn a mask indoors.'"
During an exclusive interview with Fox News Tuesday, salon owner Erica Kious cast Pelosi’s visit as part of a double standard.
“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,” Kious told Fox News, adding that she “can’t believe” the speaker didn’t have a mask on. (From the footage, it appears Pelosi had some kind of covering around her neck.)
