“So I take responsibility for the fall of the set.”
Pelosi also said that her living room owes her an apology, the San Francisco Chronicle mentionted.
Pelosi stylist Jonathan DeNardo supported the speaker’s claim that it was founded by the salon owners. In a letter On Wednesday night, DeNardo’s legal team said that Erica Kious, who owns the salon visited by Pelosi, had expressed anger at Pelosi, accusing her of forcing her to close her business due to the pandemic (the letter acknowledges that Pelosi had no hand in shutting down the San Francisco Koran virus meters).
Denardo’s lawyer claimed that Kius had already run her salon before Pelosi’s visit. DeNardo also claimed that he called Kious and said that he would not have made the appointment without Kious’s approval.
“The fact that Mrs Kius is now opposed to President Pelosi’s presence at eSalon, and a simple cursory review of Mrs Kos’s political trends, shows that Mrs Kos is promoting President Pelosi’s own organization in vain,” the letter said. .
Kious did not immediately respond to a request for comment. She did not answer a phone number listed below her name and website and her answering machine was full.
Fox News first mentionted The appointment for Pelosi’s hair, including the security video of the Congresswoman woman without a mask covering her face. A hair stylist wearing a mask follows next to her. The video was reportedly recorded on Monday. Hairdressers and barbers in San Francisco reopened for outdoor business only on Tuesdays.
Earlier Wednesday, Pelosi spokesman Drew Hamill defended the visit to the speaker’s lounge and said he “complied with the rules presented to it by the institution”.
“The speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements,” Hammill told POLITICO. “This business offered the President to come on Monday and told her that the city allowed them to have one customer at a time in the business.”
Hamil also told POLITEKO that the speaker stylist usually comes to her house, but was not available on the day of this appointment. Pelosi contacted the San Francisco Lounge based on a referral.
However, President Donald Trump and his allies used the incident to gather in Pelosi in a series of derogatory tweets.
“Crazy Nancy Pelosi has been decimated because she opened a beauty salon when everyone else was closed, and because they were not wearing a mask – despite the fact that everyone else was constantly talking.” He wrote on Twitter. “We will definitely take the House back and send Nancy the package!”
The ridicule follows a conservative line of attack against Pelosi, as they do not come into contact with the struggles of American workers. Pelosi was the subject of a Trump attack ad after her participated in a speech section that displays an ice cream cache in the early days of coronavirus quarantine.
“The owner of a beauty salon must really dislike Crazy Nancy Pelosi. Delivering it on tape is a very big deal. He probably treats him as he treats everyone else. ” He wrote. “And he strongly supported a Kennedy who just lost, from all sides, Massachusetts!”
Meanwhile, Fox News host Sean Hannity mocks the speaker in a tweet as “PAMPERED PELOSI” and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows referred to the visit to the living room during a interview Wednesday morning at “Fox & Friends”.
Meadows, which is in one impasse with Pelosi in talks over a new round of coronavirus relief, accused her of hypocrisy and said the incident was representative of “typical Washington, DC”
“Whether he’s in San Francisco going to a salon or in the secrecy of a negotiating room, it’s time to get serious about helping the American people,” he said.
