These two politicians already don’t like each other. But now the gloves have come off.
And chaos erupted after two members of Congress have come to blows over a new Senate policy.
The United States Senate has recently introduced a major policy change.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has decided to do away with the dress code policy, allowing lawmakers to come to the chamber wearing whatever they want.
Fox confirms that the Senate will no longer enforce a dress code for senators. Senators can now what ever they want. However, others entering the chamber must comply with the dress code. Coats/ties for men. Business attire for women

This is likely a decision that was made to accommodate Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) who has a habit for dressing unprofessionally by wearing hoodies and gym shorts to work.
Schumer has received quite a bit of criticism for the change in dress code policy, specifically from Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).
“The Senate no longer enforcing a dress code for Senators to appease Fetterman is disgraceful. Dress code is one of society’s standards that set etiquette and respect for our institutions. Stop lowering the bar,” Greene said in a post on X (formerly Twitter).

And in an effort to pick a fight with her, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) responded to Greene with a post of her own.
“Aren’t you the one who did revenge p*rn in a hearing,” AOC said.
Ocasio-Cortez is of course mentioning the time when Rep. Greene displayed explicit pictures of Hunter Biden during a House Oversight and Accountability Committee hearing earlier this summer.
Greene was using the pictures to show how corrupt Hunter Biden is.
Marjorie Taylor Greene didn’t back down, and decided to respond back to Ocasio-Cortez.
“Are you OK with Hunter Biden violating the MANN Act, which is human s*x trafficking?” Greene said in response.
As of now, AOC has yet to respond.
It looks like yet again, she picked a fight that she simply can’t win.
But this situation shows that Congress can’t agree on even the smallest of policies.
Time will tell if more members of the House and Senate will publicly display their disagreements with one another over the dress code change.
