‘Angry Salon Customers’ Protest At Pelosi’s Home; Hang Blow Dryers And Curlers On Pelosi’s Tree
US Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, Democrat of California, speaks during a press conference before the vote on the 'Delivering for America Act' to protect the postal system, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on August 22, 2020.

Women who reportedly described themselves as “angry salon customers” peacefully protested at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) home in San Francisco on Thursday after video surfaced this week that showed Pelosi getting her hair done at a salon in violation of coronavirus lockdown measures.

“Protesters have gathered in front of Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home and are stringing up curlers and blow dryers on a tree after a video surfaced of Pelosi getting her hair done indoors/maskless at a SF salon,” San Francisco Chronicle reporter Jessica Christian wrote on Twitter.

Christian continued, “None of these demonstrators in front of Nancy Pelosi’s home are salon owners or workers. They’ve all described themselves ‘angry salon customers’ who want to get their hair and nails done.”

“Demonstrators have formed a hand-holding circle around a tree with blow dryers and hair curlers hanging in front of Nancy Pelosi’s SF home,” Christian added. “The tree of blow dryers and curlers has been decorated with an American flag and dubbed the Freedom Tree by protestors in front of Nancy Pelosi’s home.”

Video emerged this week of Pelosi breaking the lock down rules so that she could get her hair done, which she later claimed was part of some diabolical attempt to set her up and said that the owner of the salon, Erica Kious, owed her an apology.

President Donald Trump even mocked Pelosi over the incident, writing on Twitter: “Crazy Nancy Pelosi is being decimated for having a beauty parlor opened, when all others are closed, and for not wearing a Mask – despite constantly lecturing everyone else. We will almost certainly take back the House, and send Nancy packing!”

Kious disputed Pelosi’s claim that she was the victim of a “setup,” telling Fox News host Tucker Carlson that Pelosi was the one who set up the appointment.

“She had called the stylist, or her assistant did, and made the appointment, so the appointment was already booked, so there was no way I could’ve set that up,” Kious said. “And I’ve had a camera system in there for five years. I mean, I didn’t go in there and turn cameras on as soon as she walked in to set her up. So that’s absolutely false.”

When asked by Carlson how it felt to have the most powerful woman in American politics attack her, Kious responded, “To be honest, it was more hurtful.”

“She’s been coming in for quite a while, and just to see her come in and especially not wearing the mask, that’s what really got to me, but this isn’t even political,” Kious continued. “She’s been coming in there. It’s the fact that she actually came in and didn’t have a mask on, and I just thought about my staff and people not being able to work and make money and provide for their families, and if she is in there comfortably without a mask and feeling safe, then why are we shut down? Why am I not able to have clients come in? So, it’s been hard.”
