Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) bluntly reminded Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) of her own recent past after she attacked his fashion.
Greene, a conspiracy theorist and close ally of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), said it was “disgraceful” that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) changed the chamber’s informal dress code to allow senators to dress however they choose.
Fetterman, known for his hoodies and other informal clothing, is the most prominent beneficiary of the change.
But Republicans are outraged by the move, especially Greene, who said, “The dress code is one of society’s standards that establish etiquette and respect for our institutions.”
Given Greene’s own history of defying etiquette — including a speech at a white nationalist event last year — her critics were quick to point out her hypocrisy.
And on Monday, Fetterman hit back on Twitter, reminding Greene of the time she showed nude pictures of Hunter Biden during a House hearing.
“Fortunately, the country’s House of Commons lives by a stricter code of conduct: showing ding-a-ling images in public hearings,” he wrote on X (formerly Twitter):
Fetterman’s fashion was a frequent target of Republican lawmakers.
Just last week, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) took a look at his clothing, calling his shirt a muumuu and mocking him for wearing pants that were “not exclusively stretchy.”
Fetterman responded by recalling that the House had failed to pass any spending legislation, putting the country on the path to a government shutdown.
“Instead of crying about the way I dress, how about you pull yourself together and do your job, buddy?” he wrote on X.
