Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just gave up. Her career could be completely ruined — she never expected to get blowback from the public. This is the end.
With a single act, Pelosi has now given up all pretense of credibility on safety protocols for COVID-19. Salons are on lockdown in San Francisco, but she pulled her weight to get a hair appointment anyway, and she didn’t even wear a mask.
Now, instead of admitting her elitism and double-standard, Pelosi demanded that the salon is to blame. “As it turns out, it was a setup,” she said. “So I take responsibility for falling for a setup.” Then she said, “They owe me an apology.”
This is tone-deaf, even for Pelosi. During a time when salons aren’t allowed to fully reopen in San Francisco, she has the nerve to demand an apology from the salon that still accommodated her. And she also exposed herself as a hypocrite.
That’s right. As many states have mandated mask-wearing while in public, Pelosi didn’t wear one in the salon — even though she has repeatedly virtue-signaled about the importance of masks and criticized President Trump for not always wearing one.
As Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted: “Democrats don’t think Americans are capable of making their own decisions. They want to make our choices for us…but then they don’t want to live by those choices themselves.”
