Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) gave Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) a blunt reminder 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.) had tweaked the chamber’s informal dress code to allow senators to dress as they choose.
Fetterman, known for his hoodies and other informal attire, is the most prominent beneficiary of the change. Republicans, and Greene in particular, are furious over the change. She said that “dress code” is a society standard which sets etiquette, respect, and a sense of dignity for our institutions. Fetterman retorted on Twitter on Monday by reminding Greene that she had displayed nude pictures of Hunter Biden at a House hearing.
“Thankfully, the nation’s lower chamber lives by a higher code of conduct: displaying ding-a-ling pics in public hearings,” he wrote on X (formerly Twitter):

Fetterman’s fashion has been a common target for Republican lawmakers.
