Report: Schumer Nixes Dress Code, Fetterman Free to Dress a Mess

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has eliminated the Senate dress code that requires lawmakers to dress professionally while on the Hill.


From The New York Post:

Schumer (D-NY) quietly directed the Senate’s sergeant at arms to stop enforcing the dress code that mandates male senators wear a jacket and tie and female senators a dress or other businesswear on the floor, Axios reported Sunday.

The change in policy comes after Fetterman (D-Pa.) was bashed by conservatives for wearing a hoodie, gym shorts and sneakers to the chamber. Many called his casual fashion choices disrespectful.

“John Fetterman’s attire in the Senate perfectly summarizes Democrats lack of respect for Americans and our institutions,” tweeted conservative comedian Tim Young.

The 6-foot-8-inch Democrat often eschewed a suit and tie in favor of the informal duds after he returned to Washington following a six-week stint at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he was treated for clinical depression.

“He’s setting a new dress code,” Sen. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) joked to the Associated Press in May. “He was struggling. And now he’s a joyful person to be around.”

Fetterman, who infamously hates suits, previously got around the dress code by voting from the doorway of the Democratic cloakroom or the side entrance to the Senate floor, rather than the floor itself.

But Schumer’s new directive shows that times are changing.

“Senators are able to choose what they wear on the Senate floor,” he told Axios in a statement. “I will continue to wear a suit.”

  1. Fetterman looks and dresses like the maintenance guy in a cheap motel but the maintenance guy in a cheap motel is providing an actual service and can be a good guy… Fetterman on the other hand…

    It shows tremendous disrespect for his job to dress that way.

  2. What does chuck schumer get paid to do? Besides make meaningless press conferences on a Sunday that otherwise would get no coverage, that accomplish absolutely nothing. The guy is the biggest political stooge shayach and the greatest waste of taxpayer dollars.

    He is not worth a pile of beans

    • Just because fake news fabricates reports about his, doesn’t mean he’s still around. FYI he’s not, just like Biden and most other aren’t. You’re missing exciting events happening in the world if you follow fake news.

  3. perfectly appropriate attire to represent the quality of the people in the government we now have running this country. does anyone think a suit and tie is what we need to return the USA to its once exalted status?
