Pelosi on salon visit: 'It was a setup'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi responded to criticism over a solo hair salon visit in San Francisco at a time when California businesses are limited by concern over coronavirus.
I take responsibility for trusting of the word of the neighborhood salon that I've been to over the years, many times, and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people, one person at a time, and that we can set up that time I trusted that. As it turns out, it was set up, so I take responsibility for falling for a set up. If the salon is saying that we're able to do this, but and they're not, then they should not have said that and they should not have been open for me to go there. But we trusted a neighborhood salon that I've been to four years. We have to get our country moving again, and I will not let this subject take away from the fact that we have 180,000 plus people who have died from this virus.
