After a group of female reporters shared that they had been denied entrance to the Speaker’s lobby on a hot period because of their sleeveless dresses, term promptly spread that Speaker Paul Ryan’s ” new ” dress code( which had been in effect under the former Speaker as well) was the equivalent of” white Sharia ,” with male legislators requiring girls to dress like fictional handmaids because they couldn’t be held accountable for their actions were they to insure uncovered female arms. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi, showing no self-awareness whatsoever, praised Ryan for updating the dress code. Pelosi might want to hold off, though, until she acquires out just how far Ryan is going to go in modernizing the dress code for men.
Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana, we’ve been told, has been wanting to wear his male romper aka the RompHim, 2017′ s hottest manner trend on the House floor. Banks was too shy to bring it up, so Sen. Todd Young stepped up to make Banks’ wishes known.

Young took some flak for expending precious seconds of the people’s time on a gag, but at the least it was new. People still don’t seem to get that” the Ryan rule” about sleeveless outfits wasn’t his initiation.
This is Ryan’s new “modern” dress code outfit for women in the house, in keeping with modern day GOP values. pic.twitter.com/ pUvPTkeU6c
