House Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn’t royalty. However, she acts like the queen as she flouts her own state’s rules.
Pelosi was seen maskless at a luxurious San Francisco wedding over the weekend despite mask mandates for schoolchildren in her state, Fox News reported. She was joined by California Gov. Gavin Newsom and San Francisco Mayor London Breed at the affair.
The wedding began at San Francisco city hall where Pelosi officiated and the party continued afterward at the Getty Mansion. There’s no word how many guests attended, but at least 100 chairs were visible in one of the published photos of the event.
Currently, all Californians at indoor events are supposed to mask. “Masks are required for unvaccinated people and recommended for everyone in indoor public places, like: retail, restaurants, theaters, family entertainment centers, meetings, State and local government offices that serve the public,” September’s updated edict said.
Moreover, children are required to mask up for hours a day just to learn. “Parents have reached a boiling point,” Reopen California Schools founder Jonathan Zachreson told Fox News Digital. “They are just so done, and when you see Nancy Pelosi and these other wealthy individuals’ total disregard for the rule and lack of consideration for what our children are going through, it’s so defeating and infuriating.”
This is not the first time Pelosi has been caught flouting her own state’s rules. According to The Hill, the lawmaker claimed to have been set up last year when the eSalon released a video of her walking around maskless — which was strictly prohibited — in the closed salon.
“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 that we’re able to accommodate people one person at a time and that we could set up that time, I trusted that,” she said at a press conference in September 2020. “As it turns out, it was a setup. So I take responsibility for falling for the setup,” Pelosi claimed.
While American schoolchildren must cover their faces, Pelosi and her ilk get to breathe freely while enjoying fine dining in lavish surroundings. It’s clear that Pelosi is a modern-day Marie Antoinette — but at least America is civil enough only to oust her party in the midterm elections.
