‘Slobs of the world unite!’ Schumer changes Senate dress code to accommodate Fetterman

The Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate has moved to lower the standards of traditional decorum by no longer enforcing a dress code for elected lawmakers, a change that will allow one of the party’s biggest stars, Senator John Fetterman (D-Pa.) to continue to show up for work looking like a slob.

On Sunday, Axios reported that Senate Majority Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) “quietly” directed the Senate Sergeant at Arms to back off on enforcement of the dress code, good news for the hulking tattooed everyman whose standard business attire sometimes resembles garb that could belong to a homeless person who lives behind a dumpster, but bad news for staffers who will still be required to dress formally.

“The updated rule will go into effect this week, according to a Senate official. The change applies only to senators — staff members will still be required to follow the old dress code,” Axios reported.

Fox News Senior Congressional Correspondent Chad Pergram confirmed the relaxing of the upper chamber’s fashion requirements.

“Fox confirms that the Senate will no longer enforce a dress code for senators. Senators can now what ever they want. However, others entering the chamber must comply with the dress code. Coats/ties for men. Business attire for women,” Pergram posted to X, previously known as Twitter.

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

Reactions to Schumer’s move to accommodate the needs of one very special senator were as brutal as could be expected as criticism broke out on X.

“Slobs of the world unite!” Laura Ingraham of Fox News said.

“The Senate no longer enforcing a dress code for Senators to appease Fetterman is disgraceful,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-Ga.A) tweeted.
Dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions. Stop lowering the bar!”

“This is pathetic. Grow up and put on a suit,” wrote conservative commentator Megyn Kelly.

More reactions to the debasement of the entire history of the upper chamber so one uncouth galoot can continue to wear his hoodies and grungy gym shorts on the job:

Heritage Foundation Vice President of Government Relations Clint Brown offered up some important perspective:

“Future Senators will be wearing sweats and leggings on the Senate Floor. This matters, let me tell you why. The Senate is leading by example in engaging in the decivilization that is progressivism. What is civilization but standards we expect everyone to uphold?” Brown wrote on X.

“This is especially important for our leaders — our House of Lords. We should hold them to a higher standard since we place them in an elite position. When standards are lowered to accommodate those who won’t uphold them, we lose a bit of civilization. It’s even more detrimental when standards are lowered in the institution meant to hold our civilization together,” he stated. “Look around you and compare to the world of 10 or 20 years ago. We are decivilizing at a rapid rate. Seemingly small decisions like this are an accelerant.”
