Fetterman Ripped by Conservatives After Senate Drops Dress Code

Conservative lawmakers are speaking out against Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) after the Senate recently dropped its official dress code.

Fetterman became the target as his tradition of wearing hoodies and shorts was seen as the reason behind the change.

"The Senate no longer enforcing a dress code for Senators to appease Fetterman is disgraceful," Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene posted on X.

"Dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions. Stop lowering the bar!" she added.

"Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) confirmed Sunday he had directed the chamber’s sergeant-at-arms to stop enforcing the dress code for senators, which previously required men to wear coats and ties," the New York Post reported.

"The change has already been dubbed the 'Fetterman Rule' due to the Pennsylvanian’s penchant for wearing hoodies or loose button-down shirts and large, baggy shorts," it added.

While Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he will continue to wear a suit, it's unclear whether the change will impact other senators and how they choose to dress.

The dress code change also does not extend to Senate staff members who have their own dress requirements for formal attire while in the Senate.

Some pushed back on Greene's attacks about Fetterman lowering the bar, however, as she displayed an explicit image of first son Hunter Biden during a questioning session earlier this year.

The impact of the Fetterman Rule could be an interesting one to watch in the weeks ahead as the Senate shifts from enforcing the wearing of masks not long ago to no dress code for its members.
