Senate Scraps Dress Code to Accommodate ‘Slob’ John Fetterman: ‘Stop Lowering the Bar!’

The United States Senate has been accused of “lowering the bar” after Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) scrapped the dress code for senators to accommodate Democrat Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA).

Schumer directed the Senate’s Sergeant at Arms to end the chamber’s dress code.

The rule goes into effect this week and will end the Senate’s historic rules for smart attire.

Since he was sworn into office in January, Fetterman has frequently failed to adhere to the code.

Instead, the senator prefers to wear gym shorts and hoodies on the job.

Many have accused Fetterman of dressing like a “slob” in the Senate.

“Senators are able to choose what they wear on the Senate floor,” said Schumer to Axios Sunday.

“I will continue to wear a suit.”

Interestingly, the change is only for senators and not staff members.

“Senators can now [wear] whatever they want,” said Fox News journalist Chad Pergram.

“However, others entering the chamber must comply with the dress code.”

“Business attire for women.”

Already, many are coming out to slam what’s now being called “The Fetterman Rule.”

“The end of Western Civilization,” said Roger Stone on Twitter/X.

“Dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) noted.

“Stop lowering the bar!” she blasted.

As many critics have noted, there is no reason Fetterman can’t wear a suit in the chamber.

While he did suffer a stroke before his election last year, there is no medical reason why he can’t dress appropriately.
