If you want to know how out-of-touch Democrats are with regular Americans, look no further than Nancy "With the Good Hair" Pelosi. After her hypocrisy and double-standards were exposed during Salongate, you would think that the 80-year-old Speaker of the House would try too keep a low profile for a while.
No such luck.
On Labor Day, Pelosi reached out on social media, tweeting:
“Over generations, working people across America built the middle class and secured progress for hard-working families. House Democrats are unified in our commitment to America’s working families. Happy #LaborDay!”
This did not sit well with commentators or the public, and the criticism was almost immediately on Full Blast. Fox host Greg Gutfeld came hard and fast with the quips ridiculing Pelosi:
"It's a pile-on at the hair salon."
"It's a law she bends to treat her split ends."
"Nancy Pelosi taken to task, minus a mask."
One person tweeted a response that was devastating in its brevity, simply saying, "Nice Hair.:
They were, of course, referring to recent security footage of Pelosi walking through a San Francisco salon, maskless and with wet hair. She was there getting her hair done, despite a local mandate that coronavirus-shuttered salons and stylists could finally open back up on September 1st, but only for outdoor sessions.
In fact, the ESalonSF where Pelosi got her her hair done had been closed since March.
Of course, Pelosi, who has been in Congress since 1987, refused to take to take any responsibility for her actions or her apparent do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do double standard. Instead, she claimed that the salon owner had set her up, and that she was the one owed an apology.
For her part, the owner denies Pelosi's accusation, while the rest of us are left wondering how an ordinary salon owner could supposedly set up a career politician who is supposed to be familiar with the rules anyway.
Former Presidential candidate and current Republican Senator from Utah Mitt Romney showed an unexpectedly savage wit when he tweeted a picture of his wife Ann appearing to hand-cut his hair with a pair of scissors:
"Getting cleaned up for resumption of the Senate. Better salon than Pelosi's"
Nicely played mic drop, Senator Romney.
