Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), after criticizing Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) for his attire, received a direct reminder of her own previous history.
Conspiracy theorist and close friend of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Greene, called it “disgraceful” that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) has changed the chamber’s casual dress code to permit senators to wear whatever they like.
The most notable winner of the adjustment is Fetterman, who is recognized for his hoodies and other casual apparel.
However, Republicans are outraged by the decision, including Greene, who claimed that “dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions.”
Given Greene’s own history of disrespecting protocol, which includes a speech she gave at a white supremacist rally the previous year, her detractors were eager to call out her inconsistency.
And on Monday, Fetterman responded to Greene on Twitter by reminding her of the time she showed pictures of Hunter Biden in an undressed state before a House hearing.
He said on X (formerly Twitter): “Thankfully, the country’s lower chamber lives by a higher code of conduct: displaying ding-a-ling pics in public hearings.”

Republican legislators have frequently criticized Fetterman’s clothing choices.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is mocking him for wearing trousers that are “not exclusively elastic,” called his shirt a muumuu only last week.
In response, Fetterman emphasized that the House had failed to enact any funding legislation, setting the nation up for a government shutdown.
He posted on X, “How about you get your shit together and do your job, bud, instead of crying about how I dress.”
