Democratic Senator John Fetterman faced criticism from Republican Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado for his choice of attire during a Senate press conference. Fetterman attended the event wearing a hoodie and shorts, which Boebert deemed as inappropriate. Taking to Twitter, Boebert expressed her disapproval, emphasizing the significance of dressing professionally for such a job.

Fetterman has established a personal style of wearing casual clothes, often sporting running shoes, athletic shorts, and an oversized Carhartt sweatshirt. This particular fashion choice resonates with his left-wing supporters, who perceive Fetterman, a Harvard graduate, as a relatable working-class lawmaker. However, the contrast between Fetterman’s casual attire and the formal suits worn by his four Democratic colleagues at the press conference drew attention and raised eyebrows.

According to Fox News:

“John Fetterman redefined Casual Friday on a Thursday morning,” Boebert wrote on Twitter. “It’s truly unbecoming for someone to show up like that to any job, let alone a job that only 100 people are elected to do.”

The Pennsylvania senator attended a Thursday news conference to discuss debt limit negotiations wearing a white hoodie, gray workout shorts, and running shoes, while standing alongside four fellow Democratic Senators who all were dressed in a suit and tie.

“There’s just no excuse for it,” the Colorado Republican said in her tweet blasting Fetterman’s Senate attire.

During his time as Mayor of Braddock and campaign for the Pennsylvania Senate, Fetterman was known for wearing sweats on the job, but raised eyebrows when he showed up to the United States Senate in a hoodie.

Critics argue that even considering Fetterman’s recent hospital stay, his decision to forego formal work attire, like a suit, comes across as unprofessional and disrespectful to the significance of his position. They contend that if he is too unwell to dress appropriately, it raises concerns about his ability to fulfill the responsibilities of his role with the necessary attention to detail and seriousness it demands.
