The owner of a San Francisco hair salon where Nancy Pelosi was caught on camera without a mask denied on Wednesday night that she set up the House speaker. This was after Pelosi, a notorious liar, threw the salon owner under the bus, claiming she was setup by the owner whose security video feed showed the Speaker walking around without a mask.
During an appearance on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, Salon owner Erica Kious, said “There was no way I could’ve set that up.”
“I’ve had a camera system in there for five years. I mean, I didn’t go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in and set her up. So that is absolutely false,” Kious told Tucker.
Kious released footage of Pelosi strolling around her salon bare-faced, sparking charges of hypocrisy in light of the lawmaker’s frequent calls to take the pandemic seriously.
The salon owner, who said she rents out chairs to independent stylists, claimed she did not leak the recording for “political” reasons.
“I just thought about my staff and people not being able to work and make money and provide for their families, and if she is in there comfortably without a mask and feeling safe, then why are we shut down? Why am I not able to have clients come in?” Kious argued.
Besides not wearing a mask, Pelosi disregarded another city CV-19 virus regulation by getting the haircut inside. Everyone else in the video was wearing a mask. Like all Democrats in power, Pelosi believes she is above the law.
Hair salons in San Francisco are currently only permitted to conduct operations outdoors. It’s ridiculous, but here we are.
However, Pelosi earlier Wednesday told reporters she was set up by the salon. She’s the Speaker of US House of Representatives, and she’s telling you that a hair salon owner set her up, in her own district. And she wants you to believe it.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I’ve been to … many times,” she told reporters. I bet she’s no longer welcome there.
“It was a setup. I take responsibility for falling for a setup.” What an incredibly irresponsible Orwellian newspeak statement. She accepts responsibility for being setup. That’s like giving an apology of, “I’m sorry that you felt offended by my words.”
Pelosi wasn’t accepting responsibility, she was accusing someone else for her own culpability, and she was doing it in a way that she could later claim that the words came out of her mouth, but even Helen Keller could tell the San Francisco Democrats was shoveling a load of bullschtein.
Pelosi threw her stylist under the bus, claiming followed the rules as dictated out by the stylist, who told her that salons are now able to have one customer inside at a time. Well, I got news for Pelosi. The hairstylist isn’t the one who makes up the rules. That would be the tyrants in charge of the city and state, all Democrats, who Pelosi can get on the phone within minutes if she wanted.
Kious confirmed Wednesday night that was, in fact, her belief. But Pelosi’s ignorance of the rules is no excuse. She pushed the wearing of a mask all along, and her excuse for that was, she never wears a mask when she gets her hair done. She then asked reporters, “Do you wear a mask when you’re washing your hair?” More deception. Pelosi wasn’t washing her hair, the salon was, and yes, I do. I’ve gotten two haircuts in a salon since the Chinese virus house arrest orders came down from my Democrat governor, and I wore a mask the entire time, and I believe most Americans would expect the House Speaker to do the same.
And it’s not like the salon reached out to Pelosi to book the appointment. According to Kious, Pelosi’s assistant booked the appointment.
“I heard that,” Kious told Carlson, “and I thought to myself, ‘Well as a hairstylist, I see clients one-on-one. So, that would mean that I would be open, right?’”
Matthew Soleimanpour, a lawyer for Pelosi’s hairstylist, appears to agree with the House speaker’s interpretation of what unfolded. In a prepared statement by the lawyer, Jonathan DeNardo, the hair stylist, agreed with Pelosi’s accusation that her appointment at eSalon on Monday was “a set-up” designed to embarrass the Democrat for allegedly ignoring coronavirus rules, according to reports. I hope he’s looking for another shop at this point in time.
Soleimanpour said the day before his client cut Pelosi’s hair, during a phone call with Kious, the salon owner “made several vitriolic and incendiary comments about Speaker Pelosi.”
“Mr. DeNardo’s name has now been dragged through the mud for simply following Ms. Kious’ recommendations.” That’s odd, because until the lawyer mentioned his name, I had no idea it wasn’t the salon owner who did Pelosi’s hair.
“It appears Ms. Kious is furthering a set-up of Speaker Pelosi for her own vain aspirations,” the statement said.
Did anyone expect the lawyer to not side with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, who is a known vindictive and mean Democrat liar?
