    Stupid Senate to no longer enforce dress code for senators

    By Pilar Arias , Chad Pergram | Fox News




    The U.S. Senate will no longer enforce a dress code for members of the upper house elected by those they serve.

    "However, others entering the chamber must comply with the dress code. Coats/ties for men. Business attire for women," tweeted Chad Pergram, Fox News senior congressional correspondent.

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., quietly sent the directive to the Senate's sergeant at arms, news website Axios reported.

    The change allows Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., to continue to wear his trademark hooded sweatshirts and gym shorts while working for Americans.

    Fetterman was previously praised for "turning heads" and "redefining fashion in the stuffy Senate" during his recovery after a six-week stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he was treated for "clinical depression" and "fitted for hearing aids for hearing loss that had made it harder for him to communicate," according to an AP story from May.

    The senator even found a workaround to the legislative body's dress code rules by voting from the doorway of the Democrat cloakroom or the side entrance, making sure his vote is recorded before ducking out, per the AP report.



    "Hes setting a new dress code," Democrat Vermont Sen. Peter Welch joked to AP in May. "He was struggling. And now hes a joyful person to be around."

    Fetterman faced some backlash against his casual dress code, even from his own staff, according to AP, who "had originally asked him to always wear suits, which he famously hates."

    "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. The news website added that Senate officials said the updated rule will go into effect this week.

    Any day now someone will show up in ratty sweat pants and a wife beater with Cheeto stains all over the front.

    Honestly, a good chunk of them have been acting like trash anyway, might as well dress the part.

    Americans and Canadians have gone too casual. People are slobs at the office, bigger slobs on airplanes, slobs at nice restaurants. I hate it.

    Susan Collins jokes she will 'wear a bikini' to the Senate while slamming dress code changes

    By Brandon Gillespie | Fox News




    Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, joked Monday that she would "wear a bikini" on the floor of the Senate following Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's, D-N.Y., directive that the body would no longer enforce a dress code for its members.

    Her comments were first reported by an NBC News reporter, but were confirmed by Fox News Digital. Collins made the comments while slamming the dress code directive, arguing it "debases the institution," which still requires others entering the chamber to comply with the dress code, including coats and ties for men, and business attire for women.

    "Obviously, I'm not going to wear a bikini," Collins said. "But the fact is, as I understand it, I could!"

    Fox News Digital confirmed the dress code changes on Sunday after Schumer secretly sent the directive to the Senate's sergeant at arms.

    The change will allow Sen. John Fetterman, D-Pa., to continue wearing his trademark hoodies and gym shorts he is often seen wearing around Capitol Hill after returning from a six-week hospitalization for depression earlier this year.

    He had previously found a workaround to the legislative body's dress code rules by voting from the doorway of the Democrat cloakroom or the side entrance, making sure his vote is recorded before ducking out.



    Fetterman was blasted by conservatives following the change, with some suggesting the move was made to appease him.

    I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of guy.

    I don't mind wearing dress clothes, I just can't stand ties around my neck. I don't like tight crew neck shirts either, and if I'm wearing a button up shirt, the top button is always undone.

    Hoodies are a bit too far for me.
