Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney just called out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over her recent salon visit.
Romney released a picture of himself getting a haircut at home with his wife, Ann Romney, and said that his salon was “better” than the one Pelosi used.
On Twitter, Romney shared a photograph of him getting a haircut from his wife with the following statement.
“Getting cleaned up for resumption of the Senate Better salon than Pelosi’s!” Romney wrote.
Romney’s tweet comes after a video was released showing Pelosi getting her hair done indoors in a private hair salon in San Francisco.
Pelosi was exposed last week for using a hair salon that has been locked down to the public amid the coronavirus.
Security footage timestamped Monday at 3:08 p.m. Pacific Time shows Pelosi walking through eSalon in San Francisco with wet hair, and without a mask over her mouth or nose.
When asked about this last week, Pelosi said she accepts responsibility, but claims it was all a “set up.”
Security footage from inside the salon shows Pelosi casually walking through the shop without a mask over her mouth or nose.
The stylist doing her hair can be seen following her wearing a black face mask.
Salons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.
Salon owner Erica Kious, in a phone interview with Fox News, shared details of Pelosi’s visit.
Kious explained she has independent stylists working for her who rent chairs in her salon.
“One of the stylists who rents a chair from me contacted me Sunday night,” Kious said.
A screengrab of the text message she received from one of her stylists and obtained by Fox News, said: “I’ll be there at 2:45 tomorrow. Pelosi’s assistant just messaged me to do her hair.”
Kious replied: “Pelosi?”
A text message from a hairstylist to Erica Kious, salon owner, that he would open the salon to provide Pelosi services.
“I was like, are you kidding me right now? Do I let this happen? What do I do?” Kious told Fox News while noting that she “can’t control” what her stylists do if they rent chairs from her, as “they’re not paying” at this time.
Kious said Pelosi received a wash and a blow-dry but told Fox News that “you’re not supposed to blow dry hair” according to coronavirus safety precautions for hair salons.
“We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can’t – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless, and honestly beaten down,” Kious said.
“I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen,” she explained. “I am a single mom, I have two small children, and I have no income.”
She added: “The fact that they did this, and she came in, it’s like a slap in the face.”
