After becoming one of the top new stories of the day after getting caught taking a trip to an indoor Salon in San Francisco, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a presser she was “set up” by the salon.
Pelosi explained “Let me just say this. I take responsibility the word of a neighborhood salon that i’ve been to over the years many times and when they said we’re able to accommodate people one person at a time and that time I trusted that.”
“As it turns out it was a set up. So I take responsibility for falling for a set up and that’s all i’m going to say on that.” She added.
Many conservatives on Twitter were not exactly impressed with Pelosi’s explanation.
Brit Hume wrote “Re: Pelosi claiming she was set up by the hair salon owner. Shades of D.C. “Mayor for Life” Marion Barry in 2005 when caught by the FBI with a hooker and crack cocaine in a hotel room: “The bitch set me up.””
Diamond and Silk wrote “Since Nancy Pelosi is blaming the Salon Owner for setting her up, was it a set up for her not to wear a mask? This is why Term Limits are needed; it’s time for lying Nancy to be voted out!”
Dinesh D’Souza wrote “Pelosi saying the salon “set her up” by recording her is akin to a bank robber claiming to be “set up” by surveillance cameras recording the heist. She’s indignant she got caught!”
Juanita Broaddrick wrote “Pelosi said she was set up! They were out to get her!
Scott Baio “If a hair salon can “set up” @SpeakerPelosi she can be set up by anyone. (Scary though from someone holding her title). Nancy knew the mask rules, yet she’s blaming the salon owner. She knew no inside service. No washing or blowing dry. Only hair cuts – outdoors WITH A MASK!”

“I take responsibility for falling for a set-up…” – Pelosi
That’s not taking responsibility when you yourself are claiming to be the victim in the situation.pic.twitter.com/ehTekFbSsM
