Corey Lewandowski, a senior advisor to President Trump’s reelection campaign, told the “Todd Starnes Show” on Thursday that the rules for the average American don’t apply to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and called out the speaker’s reaction to leaked footage of a recent trip she took to a San Francisco salon.
Video emerged of Pelosi visiting a hair salon despite coronavirus guidelines that have shuttered businesses in her city. Pelosi, who was seen without wearing a mask, was called out by critics said the visit was the height of hypocrisy. Holding true to form, Pelosi appeared to somehow twist the story and ended up asking the salon owner over the “set up.”
Lewandowski recalled the story of Shelley Luther, the Texas salon owner who was jailed in May for opening her salon to feed her family. He said Pelosi exemplifies the hypocrisy of the left, but he said her political career will likely survive because the mainstream media will likely give her another pass.

The interview with Todd Starnes, the host of the program, was wide-ranging. Starnes pointed out how Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the New York Democrat, issued a public threat to Trump when he said the president would need an army to protect him in New York. Democrat defenders in the media, like Maggie Haberman from the New York Times, provided cover for Cuomo and said, “Cuomo with a one Queens guy to another threat to Trump about needing an army if he’s going to walk down the street” in NY.”
Lewandowski said Cuomo, at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, used the National Guard to surround the city of New Albany and quarantined the city and who—under his watch—has been responsible for 11,000 nursing home deaths because of “his failed policies.”
Starnes called out the Democrats for their audacity when they run ads trying to pin the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdowns on the president, when, in fact, it was the policies of Blue-State governors that damaged the country.
Lewandowski, who is traveling across the U.S. and is headed to Iowa, said the people he’s met have said they want law and order and a civilized society.
“We have a very clear message,” he said. “We stand with the men and women on the thin blue line and that will never change.”
