Looks like the ladies of ‘The View’ can’t agree on looser Senate dress code: ‘Erosion of decorum’

The ladies of ABC’s “The View” are at odds with each other when it comes to a new Senate dress code that will allow Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) to show up on the floor in whatever sloppy attire he chooses.

As previously reported, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) did away with the notion that senators should bother to dress in a professional manner that pays respect to U.S. tradition and the people they represent, thus allowing Fetterman’s refusal to dress like a grown-up to continue.

On Tuesday, co-host Whoopi Goldberg argued that Schumer “really did kind of a really wonderful thing for John Fetterman.”

“For me, I — the respect I want to see is for them for each other. I want to see the respect for us as a nation and that has nothing to do with their clothes,” Goldberg stated. “This — Fetterman is a wonderful cat. He seems to love what he’s doing.”

“It wouldn’t be a problem for me as long as you did your job,” she said. “You can come in buck-naked if you want to.”

On Friday, co-host Joy Behar revisited the topic.

“This has caused a tremendous problem on the floor, with Democrats and Republicans coming together on this topic,” Behar said. “Even [Democratic West Virginia Senator Joe] Manchin and [Democratic Whip Dick] Durbin are saying they’re concerned about the standards.”

Behar noted that there are more important things going on in America than a lax dress code to debate.

“The Republican Party is in such disarray. The country is on the brink of re-electing a criminal, basically, if he wins, God forbid, and this is what they’re worried about,” she said. “I mean, really, I think — and a shutdown, by the way, is imminent. Pretty soon we’ll have no government. They’re going away for the weekend, and they’re worried about who is wearing what on the floor.”

Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin agreed that “Congress is a steaming hot mess” but said, “There should be decorum.”

“I love just the tradition of it,” she said.

As for Fetterman, Griffin said, “He’s lost me.”

“Politically we don’t agree anyway,” she stated. “He spends his time on his official Senate Twitter account engaging in some, like, frankly Marjorie Taylor Greene–like behavior. He is referring to male genitalia, he’s calling Republicans derogatory names, and then his personal Twitter account all day is attacking people and trolling.”

Co-host Ana Navarro agreed.

“I don’t like what I feel is the erosion of decorum in the Senate, which I think is incredibly important,” she said. “I didn’t like it when Kyrsten Sinema showed up with all of those colored wigs looking like Sen. My Little Pony.”

“Listen, I don’t want to show up at a funeral home and have the funeral director in a hoodie and shorts,” Navarro reasoned. “I don’t want to show up to my plane today and have my pilot in a hoodie and shorts.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin, not known for her intelligent takes on any given issue, disagreed.

“I don’t care what he wears,” she said. “I like his heart, I like his empathy, and I like the work that he’s doing.”

But according to guest Deborah Roberts, an ABC News journalist, “decorum” matters.

“I do think that we should have some decorum, though. It is the seat of our government and I think we should have standards,” she said. “That shouldn’t be the only thing we’re worried about, but I do think we need to respect the place.”
