First of all, I don't buy that he has any lasting symptoms from his stroke of last May, other than the inability to speak. Honestly, has our nation degenerated to the point where you are required to use the spoken word to represent your state? I pray not.
Any where does Ms. Green get off suggesting he honor the dress code and wear and jacket/tie on the Senate floor. I think he looks just fine(see below). I also think anyone who makes any comments about his appearance is racist.
Fets is right, how dare the GOP congresswomen show photos of Hunter Biden to the Senate with his Johnson hanging out. Just because he posted on the internet doesn't mean he intended them to be public. I've done a lot worse.
Live and let live is my motto.
John Fetterman, MTG spar over new Senate dress code and ‘ding-a-ling pics’

Schumer axes Senate dress code following criticism of Fetterman’s hoodies: report
Fetterman pretends to be petrified over GOP’s impeachment inquiry into Biden
Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) got into it on social media Monday, with Greene ripping Fetterman-induced changes to the Senate’s dress code and the Democrat knocking Greene for displaying Hunter Biden’s “ding-a-ling pics.”
Greene, 49, who showed off NSFW pictures of the first son during a House Oversight Committee hearing back in July, dressed down Fetterman, 54, after news broke that his now-familiar shorts-and-sweatshirt attire was fit for the Senate floor.
“The Senate no longer enforcing a dress code for senators to appease Fetterman is disgraceful,” Greene posted on X, formerly Twitter. “Dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions. Stop lowering the bar!”
“Thankfully, the nation’s lower chamber lives by a higher code of conduct: displaying ding-a-ling pics in public hearings,” Fetterman clapped back.
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 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.
The new dress code means that Fetterman can now cast his votes on the Senate floor in full view of the clerk and C-SPAN cameras — after previously shouting “Aye” or “Nay” from the doorway to the chamber.
“Senators are able to choose what they wear on the Senate floor. I will continue to wear a suit,” Schumer explained in a statement, per Axios.
The revised code does not apply to staffers.
Fetterman defeated Dr. Mehmet Oz last year to flip Pennsylvania’s Senate seat to Democratic control and give Democrats a 51-49 advantage in the upper chamber.
Fetterman has since returned to the Senate, but is still enduring auditory processing issues from a stroke he suffered in May 2022.
