Fetterman laughs at Manchin following dress code fight as attacks on Democrats increase

Sen. John Fet­ter­man (D‑PA) laughed off Sen. Joe Manch­in’s (D‑WV) attempt to rein­state the Sen­ate dress code as part of a new­found joy in bash­ing his fel­low Democ­rats.
Fol­low­ing a rocky cam­paign that includ­ed suf­fer­ing a stroke and then leav­ing the Sen­ate to check him­self into care for depres­sion short­ly after arriv­ing in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Fet­ter­man has been on a wind­ing ride as a fresh­man sen­a­tor. The uphill fight for the con­tro­ver­sial and crass for­mer may­or of Brad­dock, Penn­syl­va­nia, esca­lat­ed fur­ther when the Sen­ate appeared to change its long-stand­ing dress code to appease his pen­chant for wear­ing shorts and hood­ies rather than a suit and tie.
