(RepublicanNews.org) – In an epic “aha moment,” video captured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in stunning hypocrisy, calling into doubt her efforts to control America’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pelosi has pushed the idea of universal mask-wearing for weeks. On June 26, she goaded President Trump over the matter, calling him “cowardly” for not wearing a face mask. Two days later, she told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos a national mask-wearing mandate was “long overdue.”
Then, at the end of July, she announced a requirement for House members to wear masks in the chamber, adding that she could, as the Sergeant at Arms, remove any members not wearing masks.
Then — the moment of truth came. On August 1, security camera footage captured Pelosi strutting around inside a San Francisco hair salon without a mask covering her mouth and nose. However, her stylist could be observed in the video wearing one.
San Francisco closed all salons in March, reopening them on Sept. 1 for outdoor services only.

Fox News spoke with the salon’s owner, Erica Kious, who said she considered the speaker’s insistence for an indoor appointment “a slap in the face.” Continuing, she added she couldn’t believe Pelosi wasn’t wearing a mask. “It is just disturbing.”
As the saying goes: “Actions speak louder than words.” And, Pelosi’s callous disregard for public safety and health mandates speaks volumes.
