eSalon owner speaks out after President Trump calls for her to take over as House speaker instead of Pelosi

The San Francisco eSalon owner who exposed Nancy Pelosi for not following her own COVID-19 rules earlier this week just responded after President Donald Trump called for her to take over as House speaker.

President Trump took to Twitter on Thursday after Pelosi claimed that she was “set up” at Erica Kious’ salon, where she was seen illegally getting a haircut while also not wearing a mask.

“Crazy Nancy Pelosi said she was ‘set up’ by the beauty parlor owner when she improperly had the salon opened (and didn’t wear a MASK!),” Trump tweeted. “Does anyone want a Speaker of the House who can be so easily SET UP?”

“Maybe the Beauty Parlor owner should be running the House of Representatives instead of Crazy Nancy?” he then added.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Trump doubled down on this on Thursday night while speaking at a rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

“I want the salon owner to lead the House of Representatives,” he said, according to the New York Post.

Kious has now responded to the president in a new interview.

“I see how hard the president fights for America and it has inspired me to do what is right for the people in my industry and small businesses everywhere,” she told Fox News. “I never expected all of this, but the House I am focused on right now is the house with two little girls under 10, with social-distanced learning. But I appreciate the sentiment.”

“But he is my president and I will do what I need to do,” Kious added.

This comes after Pelosi outrageously claimed that she was “set up.”

“I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I have been to many times,” she said Wednesday. “When they said they could accommodate people one at a time, and we can set up that time, I trusted that.”

“The salon owes me an apology for setting me up,” she added.

The only person who deserves an apology here is Kious, Ms. Pelosi.
