Senate Majority Leader Schumer directs the Sergeant at Arms to no longer enforce the Senate's dress code — to accommodate the senator who wants to wear this outfit to perform his duties. From @axios: https://t.co/M6NwVLTi3z pic.twitter.com/AFkE0gAouT

I understand not liking to wear a suit, but rules of decorum exist for a reason.
If Senator Lurch refuses to put on a suit to conduct official business as part of his duties as a Senator, that’s a problem.
It would be one thing if he were in a cast, and they passed a medical exemption that said he didn’t have to wear suit pants if he can’t put them on over a medical device.
But he just won’t wear a suit.
I’m convinced he can’t wear a suit.
He’s not competent enough to button pants, buckle a belt, and tie a tie.
Rather than admit that, the Senate Democrats changed the dress code.
This isn’t about the dress code, this is about the extent Democrats will go to cover for one of their own being mentally incompetent.
