The ladies were discussing Chuck Schumer's recent choice not to implement a dress code for the Senate, and they had some pointed remarks for him, as well as John Fetterman. They essentially characterized him as untidy in every conceivable manner without actually using the word.
From OK! Magazine:
"These are chambers that Abraham Lincoln walked in, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson; there's a hallowed sort-of ground to it…For me, like, there's an earnestness to John Fetterman that I really like, but I sort of think, dress for the job you want, and you have signed up for a job that's historically had this dress code," Alyssa Farah Griffin lamented about the new change.
Sunny Hostin slammed the decision, arguing that when you show up to work looking messy, it "demeans the office and the actual decorum in the Senate."
"I was always taught, you dress for the job you want, not for the job you have…And it just seems to me that even though there is no law, it is just a practice," the attorney continued. "The very least that you could do is just dress appropriately!"
Whoopi Goldberg seemed to be of a different mindset on the matter. "Listen, here's my attitude: I don't care what you wear as long as you get the job done. I don't care," she stated.
"I don't care if you're in a dress. I don't care, because my — at this point, you know, if that's how he's comf — I'm more comfortable — y'all always look good, and you're always put together. I'm more comfortable looking like me, and Barbara [Walters] understood that, and she allowed it, OK? I dress in what I wake up in," the actress said, recalling the freedom given to her by the creator of their iconic show.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually agree with what some of these old, cackling hens are saying.
While I think they could've left John McCain out of it, it's true that some legendary figures have walked the halls of our Senate. To think that now people like Fetterman are going to show up in whatever shabby attire they want is just another sign that our government and society are going down the toilet.
