Biden admin can't stop digging their own hole. Assistant communications director is another something who's only qualifications are belonging to the ABC class and is a rabid anti semite.

No - don't watch. It's unbearable. I can't believe what I'm seeing on this. It's heartbreaking to imagine them going this. I didn't know it was possible to hate the savages more than I did already but they've managed. May their deaths be as wretched as their lives.

I honestly don't understand why he dresses like this everywhere. I appreciate his moral stand, but I think a more respectable attire is called for.

Nah, keep the suits and give me moral clarity any day of the week.

He feels uncomfortable in dress clothes. I can live with that.

There's a wide range between dress clothes to shorts and a hoodie. I agree about moral clarity, but decorum is important IMHO.

I'm speaking with EXTREMELY limited knowledge here, but it could be that's part of his "brand" - that he's not pretending to be fancy, he's ignoring conventional demands and dress codes and just focusing on what's important - and what you see is what you get.

Correct, but we have a lot of people with moral clarity, what we need is prominent and respected peolple who's clarity will influence others. If he dresses always like a farmer and people view him as the meshugener senator then he is less influential than had he dressed and gave off the impression like a normal statesman.

I'd argue the opposite. We have plenty of statesmen with moral clarity.

Your average American feels like they would want to have a beer with Fetterman, not Rubio or DeSantis. Don't overlook relatability.

Perhaps you're right, I'm not out there and that's how I personally viewed him a while ago. Does the average American really relate to his dress code in the senate and on diplomatic visits? Isn't he broadly considered as the funny senator?

Is this mode of dress post-stroke? Someone I know could not bear regular clothing after TBI.

I'm no grammar expert, nor a theological or halachic one. But even a dunce like me knows there's a difference between avenge and revenge; between G-dly vengeance and human revenge. My guess this has nothing to do with any of that, but just a brainless bureaucrat going by the book exactly without an inch of leeway. It's an easy win for the IDF if someone with half a braincell looks at the case and makes a one time exception and then let them revisit the rules.

As expected, this will be resolved by legislation. There are proposals in the works right now.
