Anne Makovec reports on Rep. Nancy Pelosi paying visit to San Francisco’s Chinatown to allay fears over coronavirus (KPIX San Francisco/Monday, February 24, 2020).
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi faced strong criticism the first week of September 2020 after a video recorded Monday August 31, 2020 showed her inside a San Francisco hair salon without wearing a face mask. Local ordinance at the time prohibited people from getting hair service indoors, and mask wearing was also required. Pelosi was captured on surveillance video with wet hair walking inside the salon without a mask, despite the local ordinance prohibiting hairdressers from seeing clients indoors and a California state law that requires masks be worn in public places. The owner, who said she rents out chairs to several independent stylists, said did not like what she saw.
Pelosi later defended herself, claiming people don’t wear a mask while they’re getting their hair washed, but didn’t explain her walking through salon without her mask.
Video evidence going back to February 2020 shows that Pelosi either has no competent understanding of coronavirus precautions, or has a complete disregard when precautions apply to her own behavior. The video evidence also shows her misunderstanding of the timeline and seriousness of precautions against the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19 in the United States since January 2020.
Here is evidence showing that Pelosi’s behavior in 2020 consisted of political hypocritical rhetoric, while claiming a superior understanding of science, but not practicing or understanding “the science” herself.
Pelosi Hypocrisy Timeline …
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California promotes Chinatown businesses to prevent business loss and encourages groups to come to Chinatown in San Francisco on Monday February 24, 2020 — about 25 days after President Donald J. Trump was initiating precautions to fight Coronavirus spread into the United States by blocking flights from China. In response to the Coronavirus threat, Trump restricted flights from China on Friday, January 31, 2020.
Pelosi, Schummer and Democrats were also opposing Trumps’s attempt to expand travel restrictions with their “No Ban Act” — still in momentum to fight alleged discrimination — in late January 2020.
Pelosi declares “Trump fiddles as people are dying” claiming Trump was in denial at the beginning of the pandemic (before? or after? she was promoting crowds flocking businesses in Chinatown) while she was commenting on CNN on Sunday March 29, 2020.

Gavin Newsom on Thursday June 18, 2020 ordered all Californians to wear face coverings while in public or high-risk settings, including when shopping, taking public transit or seeking medical care (See State of California | COVID-19 INDUSTRY GUIDANCE: Hair Salons and Barbershops (July 29, 2020) [PDF] and California Department of Public Health | GUIDANCE FOR THE USE OF FACE COVERINGS (June 18, 2020) [PDF])
Pelosi’s Chinatown Visit
“It’s exciting to be here, especially at this time to be able to be unified with out community. We want to be vigilant about what might be on the horizon — what is out there in other places, we want to be careful with how we deal with it, but we do want to say to people, ‘Come to Chinatown, here we are. We’re again careful, safe … and come join us.'”

He slapped science right in the face.” This MSNBC news video was aired the same day she was caught on camera wearing no mask indoors at a San Francisco hair salon on August 31, 2020.

“You should come to Chinatown,” Pelosi said before stopping to lunch at Dim Sum Corner.
“We want people to be concerned and vigilant, but we don’t want them to be afraid.”

“Precautions have been taken by our city, we know that there’s concern about tourism, traveling all throughout the world, but we think it’s very safe to be in Chinatown and hope that others will come,” Pelosi said.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) claimed that President Donald Trump’s travel restrictions from China did not do enough to prevent people from coming to the United States, but Pelosi and Schummer on January 28, 2020 were opposing travel restrictions with the “No Ban Act” (see next video below).
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House Judiciary committee will vote on the “No Ban Act” an act that works to limit the President’s ability to impose restrictions and focused on discrimination (January 28 2020).
The San Francisco salon owner told Fox News that Pelosi’s trip was ‘disturbing’ and ‘a slap in the face.’
