San Francisco Mayor London Breed declined to criticize House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for visiting an area salon for a wash and blowout regardless of local COVID-19 restrictions, revealing to ABC7 that “we have a dictator who is running this country and Nancy Pelosi is at the forefront fighting against this person everyday.”
While she stated that she is “not trying to excuse what happened,” Breed did not clearly condemn the Speaker for breaking local COVID -19 rules and said that the complete situation has been blown out of proportion.
“We have a terrorist, we have a dictator who is running this country, and Nancy Pelosi is at the forefront fighting against this person everyday, you know, and I’m not trying to excuse what happened,” Mayor Breed stated.
“I’m just saying that to allow an issue like this to turn our city upside down when we got folks who are homeless, we’ve got people who can’t open their business, including these salons. I understand,” she continued.
When she was asked about a potential apology from Pelosi, Breed avoided an answer.
“Let me just be clear. I can be responsible for my behavior. I can’t tell other people what to do,” she claimed.
Erica Kious, the salon owner, revealed to Fox News Tucker Carlson on Wednesday that she has been receiving “hate, text messages, death threats” since exposing careless Nancy Pelosi in her salon.
During a Zoom interview on Thursday, Kious turned down Pelosi’s accusations of a setup, claiming that she hoped the story would encourage leaders to reopen businesses, which have been on hold for months.
“If a woman in a high-risk age group who spends much of her time on TV warning about the dangers of COVID-19 feels safe and comfortable in a San Francisco salon and can be responsible for being cautious and mindful, why can’t the rest of San Francisco, and the rest of America, do that, too?” she wondered.
