Last week we had Salongate when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on security cameras visiting a San Francisco hair salon for a wash and blow-out, despite Gov. Gavin Newsom’s business lockdown orders, and local ordinances keeping hair and nail salons closed during the coronavirus pandemic.
Now we find out gyms located inside of government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned gyms and fitness centers still ordered closed because of Gov. Newsom’s business lockdown over coronavirus.
If that is not enough, Central Coast Congressional Candidate Andy Caldwell reported to the Globe that the Santa Barbara Unified School District allowed the children of teachers and district employees to return to in-class learning, in a secret carve-out exemption at Franklin, McKinley, and other elementary schools in the district.
No one wants to be condescended to and lectured by foolish politicians who aren’t adhering to the rules and restrictions they put in place.
This egregious behavior only serves to prove to Californians that government officials – Speaker Pelosi, Gov. Newsom, public school teachers and the police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals using their government gyms – don’t really believe there is any danger in going to a hair salon or working out in a gym, or being back in the classroom.
Speaker Pelosi, claimed she was “setup” by the salon owner, and demanded an apology. However, she has always looked very well-coifed throughout the COVID lockdown.
Gov. Gavin Newsom has also looked well-coifed throughout the COVID lockdown, as has Mrs. Newsom.
They’ve obviously not missed any hair cuts or hair color appointments, Dermatology and esthetician appointments, dental appointments, or any of the other treatments that keep people looking good.
“It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do,” Dave Karraker, owner of MX3 Fitness in the Castro, said, the Washington Examiner reported.
