Protesters descended upon House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home Thursday, hanging blow-dryers and curlers from a tree.
Angry thatPelosiviolated coronavirus restrictions to have her hair done at a local salon — still closed to the public by local and state orders — they gathered to voice their disappointment.
The San Francisco Chronicle’s Jessica Christian described the scene outside Pelosi’s home, noting that the protesters said they were not salon employees anxious to return to work, but rather customers who felt they also deserved the chance to have their hair or nails done.
Protesters held hands and encircled the tree — which they named “Freedom Tree” after decorating it with curlers, hair dryers and an American flag.
Salon ownerErica Kiousreleased surveillance footage ofPelosi’smaskless trip to the salon, saying that it was like a “slap in the face” that she could violate restrictions to get a blowout while salon workers and owners could not remain open to the public in order to make a living.
