Several Republican senators are sounding off after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) quietly changed the Senate’s dress code to allow senators to wear whatever they want on the floor, with one calling the move “completely disrespectful.”

The change in policy went into effect beginning on Monday after a notice went out to the Senate sergeant-at-arms on Friday, directing her no longer to enforce the chamber’s dress code for its members.

The change would allow Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) to wear casual attire on the Senate floor. The freshman senator is notorious for wearing his signature hoodie and gym shorts in the halls of Congress. Fetterman has been seen wearing casual clothing after he returned to the Senate following his hospitalization for clinical depression earlier this year.

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram announced, “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.”

Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) reacted to the elimination of the dress code, telling Fox News host Mario. Bartiromo, ““Chuck Schumer certainly did not consult with me before he made this change. I think it’s just another step in the movement by the Democrats to transform America, to take us to a different place, a different place that is much less respectful than we historically have been.”

Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-Mo.) joked, “Will we see @tedcruz in jorts and a tank top?”

Cruz responded by posting a photo of a shirtless man.

Rep. John Block (R-N.M.) tweeted, “So, Fetterman can dress in his usual homeless man outfit on the Senate floor. Got it. And we wonder why our enemies laugh at us…”

Former Trump official Stephen Miller tweeted, “So let me get this straight. The entire senate is jettisoning its storied history and debasing itself before the world to accommodate the slovenliness of one man, John Fetterman? Will a single Senator object to this humiliation?”

Podcast host Megyn Kelly weighed in, writing, “This is pathetic. Grow up and put on a suit.”

Radio host Jason Rantz tweeted, “Sorry, but if you show up to work wearing what John Fetterman does, you’re a slob with zero respect for the office you serve. The guy who refills the station vending machine doesn’t even dress like Fetterman (ironically, he does more for PA than Fetterman, too).”

Columnist Joe Concha wrote, “The Fetterman legacy is now cemented. Not for improving the lives of the state he represents, of course, but because he dresses like a sophomore in summer school.”

Foreign policy analyst Nile Gardiner tweeted, “The Left have no standards at all.”

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

Defiantly, Fetterman responded to Greene’s post, writing, “Thankfully, the nation’s lower chamber lives by a higher code of conduct: displaying ding-a-ling pics in public hearings.”
