CBS News correspondent Kathryn Watson was none too happy with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for going to the salon for a quick fixer-upper on her hairdo during the coronavirus shutdowns. In fact, the reporter shredded her lame excuses for violating the restrictions during coverage of the story.
Earlier this week, Fox News broke the story and showed security camera footage that shows Pelosi visiting the salon and also not wearing a mask. Two big no-nos in one clip.
Keep in mind, earlier this year, back in June, Pelosi fought for a nationwide mask mandate and criticized the president for not issuing that order.

On Tuesday, before Pelosi accused the salon of “setting her up,” her office issued a statement suggesting the Democrat was complying with the rules.
“The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements. This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business. The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment,” a spokesperson for Pelosi said.
That didn’t sit well with Watson, who responded to a headline from KTVU that read, “BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi’s office has confirmed the speaker got her hair cut indoors in a San Francisco salon, but released a statement claiming she didn’t know she’d done anything wrong.”
“The closed signs on the salons might be a good indicator,” the CBS reporter quipped.
One of the biggest disconnects between the radical left and the average American is their view that elites in government aren’t beholden to the same rules and laws as the average American citizen. Sure, they don’t come out and state that, but actions like those taken by Pelosi make it clear that’s what they think.
Because of their position in government, many Democrats feel they are above the law. Only citizens are beholden to restrictions, not leadership. This is proof that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. It’s not just a fancy saying, it’s a hard truth.
Here’s to hoping the people of California respond to this by not reelecting Pelosi to office, stripping her of her power, and making her a regular citizen again.
