An Oregon hair salon owner slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for visiting a California hair salon without a mask in defiance of local shutdown orders by arguing that if it’s OK for her to do it, “then you need to open up America right now.”
“If it’s OK for Nancy Pelosi to go and get her hair done, and it’s OK for Kate Brown (our governor) to go get her hair done, then you need to open up America right now, because you are a hypocrite, and your actions speak much louder than your words, and your actions are saying that there is no fear of COVID-19, there is no fear of salons being open, and there is no fear that the virus is going to be spread in that way because if there were, you would not have gone and got your hair done,” hair salon owner Lindsey Graham told Breitbart News’s Joel Pollak.
Graham added: “These government agencies and the governors themselves are complete hypocrites. They’re behaving like elitists, where they have the authority to shut down the people they would consider below them. They’ve shut down small businesses, and they’ve harmed families, and they’ve taken kids out of school, and yet, they continue to take a paycheck, and they continue to live their lives. Why are we surprised that they’re continuing to go get services done that they’re deeming are unhealthy and unsanitary?”
Graham was expressing frustration over a recent controversy involving Pelosi’s trip to a hair salon despite orders for hair salons to remain closed amid coronavirus fears. Pelosi can be seen on security video footage walking around the salon without a face mask.
Pelosi responded to criticism of the visit by accusing the hair salon owner of setting her up and demanded an apology.
The hair salon owner, Erica Kious, called Pelosi’s setup accusation “absolutely false.”
