(PatriotHeadline.com)- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who famously told President Donald Trump that “nobody is above the law,” recently broke lockdown rules to get her hair done at a salon that should not have been open. The outspoken Democratic lawmaker was forced to apologize on Wednesday when it was revealed that she visited a hair salon in San Francisco, didn’t socially distance, and didn’t wear a mask.
Instead of apologizing for her hypocrisy, however, Pelosi is now blaming the salon and demanding she should have an apology too.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times,” she said.
So it’s OK to break the rules as long as people promise not to tell anyone what you’re doing?
Pelosi said that the salon told her they would be able to accommodate one person at a time, and that she “trusted” them. But as a lawmaker, and someone who has advocated the wearing of masks, she should have known – and must have known – that she would be breaking the rules.
“It was a setup, and I take responsibility for falling for a setup,” she said.

“I think the salon owes me an apology,” she added, unbelievably.
Pelosi made the comments during a press conference, but at the end, she refused to take any questions about what she did wrong. Instead, Pelosi asked the press if they had “any questions about the fact that people are dying.”
That’s not how press conferences work, Nancy.
Pelosi isn’t happy because Erica Kious, the owner of the eSalon company who rents out spaces to independent hairstylists, took her to task on Fox News for breaking the rules. Leaked footage shows Pelosi attending the venue, not wearing a mask and breaking the rules.

“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 said. “We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right?”
Well, uh, maybe some people do.
