House Speaker Nancy Pelosi woke up to a clever surprise on Friday morning — a tree outside her multimillion-dollar San Francisco mansion was filled with hair driers and curlers, left by protesters.
Pelosi made headlines last Monday when she violated California’s coronavirus restrictions and visited an indoor hair salon. Pelosi has refused to apologize for the illegal violation and insisted she was “set-up” and tricked into getting her hair done by the salon owner. The owner has denied the situation was a set-up.

Tape of the incident showed Pelosi, without a mask, walking inside the expensive San Francisco salon despite rules against blowouts or indoor hairstyling in California.
Pelosi has demanded an apology from the salon owner for leaking the video to Fox News.
Over a dozen women protested outside her mansion on Thursday to express their frustration that Pelosi, a millionaire politician, could get pampered at a salon when millions were out of work.
And they left their hair driers and hair curlers hanging in a tree outside her mansion as a message.
“What she has done is slap the face of not just a salon owner, but every woman every man every person who’s unemployed in the state of California. Who has lost their jobs and lost their livelihoods. Many of whom are my friends,” one woman told local news station KRON4.
Locals weren’t the only ones to slam Pelosi last week.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany played the video on a repeating loop during a recent press conference.
“Apparently the rules do not apply to Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She wants small businesses to stay shut down but only reopen for her convenience,” McEnany said as the video played for reporters. “‘Do as I say, not as I do,’ says Nancy Pelosi.”
Speaker Pelosi has pushed policies that would keep our economy closed and our small businesses shut down.
But for herself?
A salon visit whenever she pleases.
A “slap in the face” indeed.
