Breitbart reported that CNN’s Don Lemon did not come to the defense of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she violated the city’s pandemic restrictions and visited a hair salon in San Francisco, CA.
Lemon told his viewers this week: “Take this, the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that she was set up after she was seen not wearing a face mask at a San Francisco hair salon. The business owner shared this video of Pelosi inside the salon, not wearing a mask, as she walks from one room to another. Not wearing a mask and having haircuts indoors against the rules there. The House speaker says a salon staff member told her one appointment at a time was allowed inside the building.”
Pelosi took responsibility for “falling for a setup” and claimed that she was tricked by a salon that she trusted.
She said this week; “I take responsibility for trusting 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 a setup. So I take responsibility for falling for a setup.”
Lemon further criticized Pelosi, who visited Chinatown in February to show that she was not concerned about the coronavirus in the U.S., saying; “So the Speaker of the House is blaming the salon after she didn’t wear a mask indoors. Tonight, the salon owner is denying it was a setup. Regardless, this far into the pandemic, the House speaker should know what is safe and what isn’t. We should all know. It’s our responsibility. Instead of claiming a setup, would have been just as easy for the speaker to say, you know what? I messed up. I should have worn a mask indoors. We’ll be right back.”
