As a resident of Pennsylvania, I am still trying to understand how John Fetterman was elected to the Senate. It amazes me that he could win the Democratic primary in the state and then defeat the Republican candidate, Mehmet Oz.

Since being elected, he has done nothing to change my opinion on this. And, when he decided to appear at a Senate press conference on Thursday wearing shorts and a hoodie, it confirmed everything I thought about him when he was a candidate.

John Fetterman is an embarrassing slob.


Much has been made about Fetterman’s health conditions, and there are definitely valid concerns. From the stroke he suffered during his campaign to his extended medical leave after he took office, many have questioned whether Fetterman was fit for the job. These are medical issues and are mainly out of Fetterman’s control.

He can, however, can control his appearance. He has just repeatedly refused to do so. That may work on the campaign trail; it should not work as a senator from Pennsylvania.


As a senator, wearing shorts and a hoodie during an official press conference is beneath the dignity of the office. Standards are important and exist for a reason. Furthermore, it’s something that wouldn’t be tolerated at any other job. No employer in the country would have allowed their employee to work had they worn what Fetterman did on Thursday.

Fetterman’s clothing would have been out of line even at a gym, health club, or fitness center. He should be ashamed of himself, and so should the Democrats who said nothing and tolerated his slovenliness. They continue to enable and facilitate the decline of our country.

To her credit, congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO) scolded Fetterman for his appearance and seeming lack of respect for his job. It was a sentiment that everyone in Congress — Democrat and Republican — should follow.

“John Fetterman redefined Casual Friday on a Thursday morning,” Boebert tweeted. “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.”

Boebert is absolutely correct. Fetterman must honor and respect the office he was (shockingly) elected to and should be held accountable when he fails to do so. Wearing shorts and a hoodie at Thursday’s press conference is the stuff of satires and parodies, not the actions of elected U.S. Senators.

It’s one thing for him to be unable to perform his job duties because of his health; it’s another thing entirely for him to blatantly ignore and disregard the minimal dignity of being a senator.

He can be a slob on his own time with his wife and children. When he is in the Senate, he must exhibit some dignity. If he can’t, replace him with someone who can.
