Mitt Romney Viciously Trolls Nancy Pelosi While Getting Haircut
Utah Senator Mitt Romney took to Twitter to troll House Speaker Nancy Pelosi while she’s at a low point in her career. The senator took a swipe at Pelosi’s exposed hypocrisy over the shuttering of local businesses by having one such business open especially for her to have her hair done.
The Utah politician posted a photo to Twitter of him getting his hair cut by his wife, Ann Romney, sitting with a towel across his shoulders instead of a salon cape and a smiling family member posing with scissors.
“Getting cleaned up for resumption of the Senate,” Romney, tweeted Monday. “Better salon than Pelosi’s!”
Romney and many across the nation were shocked when they saw the video footage of a wet haired Pelosi making her way across a salon with no mask, availing herself of a regular salon service in San Francisco, before salons were allowed to have customers back inside again.
The COVID-19 restrictions that caused so many salons to lose a monumental, and in some cases terminal, amount of business was contested by many who said individuals should be allowed to decide whether to take risks concerning the coronavirus pandemic, sometimes referred to as the “china virus.”
Pelosi, however, claimed that she did not know that the police state-type business closures she supported were still in effect that day and that she was “set up” by the business owner who eventually released the video to Fox News.
“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I have been to many times,” Pelosi told reporters Wednesday according to Fox News. “When they said they could accommodate people one at a time, and we can set up that time, I trusted that.”
“The salon owes me an apology for setting me up,” she added.
While it seems unlikely that the most powerful woman in the country (and possibly the world) wouldn’t have a staff who checked up on the city ordinances that have been so hotly contested, even if she didn’t have people who were paid to check into the political fall-out of every possible move, it would seem problematic that a local representative wouldn’t know the local laws.
Pelosi, on Wednesday, downplayed the fact that she didn’t wear a mask in the salon.
“I just had my hair washed. I don’t wear my mask when I’m washing my hair,” she said. “Do you wear one when you wash your hair?”
Pelosi was seen in the video footage at the ESalonSF in San Francisco, crossing the salon with wet hair (and of course no mask) while the stylist who followed her, and presumably gave her the blowout she came for, wore a black face mask.
Salons in that area, which have been shut down since March, were told that they would be able to reopen for outdoor services on Sept. 1.
In a move whose irony was not lost on many, Pelosi’s team reached out to the salon asking if they would provide a blowout for the political figure. One stylist told the owner that they planned to serve Pelosi, and since the individual was a private contractor, the owner said she felt she couldn’t do anything to prevent it. She also said she felt it was a slap in the face to stylists who have lost their livelihood, that Pelosi was asking for an exception to her own rule.
Pelosi has been deeply involved in the extreme criticism of the governmental reaction to the Coronavirus outbreak, but, according to her own admission, she wasn’t aware of whether or not those in her own constituency were being appropriately “protected” by the laws that she so fiercely advocated for?
Seems a whole lot more likely she just wanted her hair done.
