The media, as if they haven’t thrown enough fits lately, decided to get their knickers in a twist over dress codes. Specifically the dress code that pertains to the United States House and Senate. Here’s what happened.
A young, female reporter recently tried to enter a guarded room known as the Speaker’s lobby outside the House chamber, but her outfit was considered inappropriate because her shoulders weren’t covered. She was wearing a sleeveless dress.
Forced to improvise, she ripped out pages from her notebook and stuffed them into her dress’s shoulder openings to create sleeves, witnesses said. An officer who’s tasked with enforcing rules in the Speaker’s lobby said her creative concoction still was not acceptable.
ZOMG!!! Stop. The. Presses! How DARE they inform a woman that her attire is unacceptable!
In late June, after bringing the House to order, Ryan reminded House members to “wear appropriate business attire,” on the floor. Apparently, the coverage of women’s toes and shoulders is important business for the current House leader.
I mean REALLY! How dare he demand that people dress professionally and with class!
