San Francisco Salon Owner Forced To Shut Down Salon Amid Pelosi Controversary

San Francisco Salon Owner Forced To Shut Down Salon Amid Pelosi Controversary

Erica Kious, the owner of the San Francisco salon visited by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) last week in violation of city health guidelines, has announced that she is officially going out of business.

Kious told host Tucker Carlson she was attacked for exposing Pelosi. That campaign has now reached its $300,000 goal.

Kious thanked her supporters from "all sides of the political spectrum" for their "kindness" and "generosity". "It's a little scary and sad", she told Carlson. "It's a powerful reminder that the common things that bind us all together as Americans are far more meaningful and lasting than political and ideological differences that get so much attention and focus", she continued. "I do have a lot of positive calls and messages from clients but other than that, nothing but negativity". Jonathan DeNardo, the stylist who served Pelosi at the salon, also voiced his support for the Democrat and said Kious allowed him to go forward with the appointment despite San Francisco's coronavirus restrictions.

"I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up", she added.

Former Nevada GOP Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian set up the account for Kious. "Does anyone want a Speaker of the House who can be so easily SET UP?" "Do you wear a mask when you're washing your hair?" asked Pelosi, who was maskless in the video.


Kious told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the controversy surrounding Pelosi's visit on August 31 has effectively destroyed her business in the city. Does it seem likely she would have closed anyway, given that she'd already relocated full time to her hometown of Fresno herself and opened a salon there? Yes. "As it turns out, it was a setup, so I take responsibility for falling for a setup".

'I just had my hair washed. "I do not believe she was set up-if she wanted to obey the law she could have and not have had her hair done". Do you wear a mask when you're washing your hair?

"I take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood salon that I've been to over the years many times and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people, one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that", Pelosi said at a press conference last week. 'And that picture is when I just came out of the bowl'.

"Nancy Pelosi, you ought to apologize to the American people", White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany added during a September 3 briefing as she played video of Pelosi in the salon.
