SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A lawyer for the man who styled the hair of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says he believes she was set up when she went to a San Francisco salon that wasn't permitted to have indoor services because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Pelosi is facing backlash after Fox News Channel aired footage showing the speaker walking through the salon without a mask on.

But a lawyer for the stylist says the owner gave permission for the appointment and made “vitriolic and incendiary comments" about Pelosi. Messages seeking comment from the owner weren't immediately returned.
