House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that she was the victim of a set-up when she violated San Francisco coronavirus restrictions. What’s more, she wants an apology.

KRON reports:

Pelosi said the hair salon, that she says she’s been going to for years, set her up. She added that the salon owes her an apology.

“I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I’ve been to over the years many times,” she said Wednesday while addressing reporters in the city. “When they said they were able to accommodate people one person at a time, I trusted that.”

“As it turns out – it was a setup,” she added. “So I take responsibility for falling for a setup.”

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story mistakenly referred to Los Angeles County when, if fact, Pelosi's indoor salon services were performed in San Francisco in violation of San Francisco Health Department restrictions.
