Photo: Lindsey Graham Tries On Yeshivishe Black Fedora


Today, senators arrived on Capitol Hill for the first tranche of amendment votes, coming over from confirmation hearings and the Senate office buildings.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) tweeted out a photo of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) posing with a group of Chabad men on the way to the first vote.

Sasse wrote on Twitter: “On the subway to the vote, Lindsey literally struck up the conversation with ‘Hey Fellas. I love your hats.’”



  1. 1) If the guys are Lubavitchers it is a Lubavitcher hat, no? Lubavitcher and Yeshivishe styles may be somewhat similar, but they are not identical.

    2) Aren’t the good guys supposed to wear white hats?

  2. A Chabadsker’s hat is not yeshivish, especially given that their minhag is to crunch in the crown and make the brim look wobbly. It would be correct to state he looks like a clean shaven Lubavitcher.
