Apparently, you CAN get a haircut in Pennsylvania.
You can get a haircut in Pennsylvania IF you work for State Senate Democrats.
Check out this Instagram screen grab from the now cleansed Instagram account of Brittany Crampsie. She’s the press secretary for State Sen. Jay Costa and the Pennsylvania Senate Democrats.
It’s a picture of her giving a haircut to some jobber among the Senate Democrats:
Crampsie writes in a post that’s since been deleted from her Instagram account: “You know that part of a job description that says “Other duties as assigned”? Today that included pre-session haircuts! No one needs emergency surgery or a wig, so I am calling it a success. Thanks @tonywlepore for the equipment & the photo (crying laughing emoji).”
Lots to unpack here.
First and foremost, the utter hypocrisy of it all. We just reported a few days ago that even as some counties get phased into Yellow in Gov. Tom Wolf’s re-opening Pennsylvania plan, barber shops, beauty and nail salons, and massage parlors must stay closed. That decision was a last-minute reversal decided by unelected bureaucrat and Health Sec. Rachel Levine last week.
So, as the state doubled down on keeping hair and nail salons closed, State Senate Democrats in Harrisburg say, “Well, that doesn’t apply to us.”
You can see how oblivious Crampsie is to her own hypocrisy. She posted in on Instagram! It’s more sad than anything (for her).
But this image is sure to upset salon owners (and any business owner) who’s been shut down due to the Governor’s pandemic response and over-reach. Remember, even if Schuylkill County gets moved from the Red phase of re-opening to Yellow, these businesses are supposed to stay closed.
State Rep. David Rowe (R-85, Snyder and Union counties) posted this image to his Facebook page earlier Tuesday.
He focuses on the what applies to you doesn’t necessarily apply to them angle.
“If Democratic staff are allowed to give and get haircuts, why can’t the thousands of barbershop and salon owners across the Commonwealth enjoy the same standard? Governor Wolf can buy cars but we can’t. Governor Wolf can plant a garden but we can’t. Governor Wolf and Senate staff can get haircuts but we can’t. If you are as sick of the hypocrisy and double-standards as I am, tell your local legislator and the governor. Tell them to #ReOpenPA,” he writes.
