WaPo editor joins liberal critics targeting Kyrsten Sinema for wearing denim on Senate floor


The Washington Post's Karen Tumulty joined a throng of liberals expressing their disapproval of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's choice of attire Tuesday, when the Democrat from Arizona wore a denim vest on the Senate floor.

Sinema, who's faced relentless scrutiny from the left in recent months over her opposition to parts of a $3.5-trillion, Democratic-backed spending bill, presided over the Senate wearing the vest.

The video of her more casual attire has racked up millions of views online.

Washington Post reporter Paul Kane then posted a photo of the sign barring press from wearing denim, and anything other than business attire – confirming the ban is still in place.

"Yep. It's still there…" Tumulty responded, before stating she wasn't the one who put up the sign after someone compared her to a "boomer" teacher enforcing a middle school dress code.
