WATCH: Pelosi breaks silence on Salon controversy, claims “It was a SET UP”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has broken her silence on the San Francisco Salon controversy and claims she was “set up.”

Asked about the incident where she was seen on security cam with wet hair and no mask, Pelosi responded “it was a setup” and that she took responsibility for “for falling for a setup.”

“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.” Pelosi explained

“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.”

WATCH:

The House Judiciary GOP Twitter account apparently was not impressed with Pelosi’s explanation.

They tweeted “Instead of blaming others, @SpeakerPelosi should take responsibility for her actions. But she won’t because she doesn’t actually care about working class Americans. Terrible leadership.”
