'There's just no excuse': Lauren Boebert blasts John Fetterman's uber-casual attire

Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado criticized Democratic Sen. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania for the extremely casual attire he opted to wear on Thursday.

While other senators at a Thursday press conference sported suits and ties, Fetterman, clad in a hoodie, shorts, and sneakers, offered a jarring visual contrast.

Fetterman is known for wearing hoodies, but Boebert took issue with senator's appearance.

"John Fetterman redefined Casual Friday on a Thursday morning. 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. There's just no excuse for it," she declared in a tweet.

Others also sounded off about Fetterman's duds.

"Incompetent John Fetterman wearing a hoodie and cargo shorts while speaking at a press conference on the debt ceiling. An absolute disgrace," Alana Mastrangelo of Breitbart tweeted.

Logan Hall tweeted, "It should honestly be illegal for a sitting senator to appear in front of the general public dressed like this."

Fetterman returned to the Senate last month after an extended absence while he was undergoing treatment for clinical depression.

The left-wing lawmaker took office early this year after defeating Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania's 2022 Senate contest. Oz had been backed by former President Donald Trump.

Fetterman suffered a stroke last year shortly before winning the Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary.

Boebert announced earlier this week that she is getting divorced.

"It is with a heavy weight on my heart that I have filed for divorce from my husband," Boebert reportedly said in a statement. "I've always been faithful in my marriage, and I believe strongly in marriage, which makes this announcement that much more difficult. This is truly about irreconcilable differences."
