A writer for Politico deflected growing criticism of Nancy Pelosi’s secret spa day on Twitter; questioning the legality of the Salon owner recording her own customers “without their consent.”
“Have to ask upon seeing this: Is it legal in CA — a ‘two party consent’ state — to videotape someone in a private home or business without their consent?” posted journalist Carla Marinucci.

A spokesperson for Speaker Nancy Pelosi largely dismissed the top Democrat’s secret spa day Wednesday; saying she “always wears a mask” despite video surveillance footage showing the leader enjoying the salon with no face covering.
“The Speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements. This business offered for the Speaker to come in on Monday and told her they were allowed by the city to have one customer at a time in the business. The Speaker complied with the rules as presented to her by this establishment,” Pelosi’s office said in the statement.
Speaker Pelosi has pushed policies that would keep our economy closed and our small businesses shut down.
But for herself?
A salon visit whenever she pleases.
A “slap in the face” indeed.

'NO BIG DEAL': Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Colleague Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn a fellow Democrat who viciously called President Trump a ‘motherf***er’ just hours after being sworn in; saying “I’m not in the censorship business.”
Pelosi was asked to comment on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s fiery speech at an event hosted by MoveOn.org Thursday night; telling a crowd of supporters the Democrats are “going to impeach that motherf***er!”
“I probably have a generational reaction to it,” Pelosi said. “But in any event, I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language. I don’t … establish any language standards for my colleagues, but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”
“Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it,” she added.
