The New York Times on Monday named new Pennsylvania Senator John Fetterman one of its 93 “most stylish” people of 2022, prompting backlash against the newspaper on social media, including from the Democrat’s wife.
“No, not [John Fetterman]!! Recount!!!”, the wife of Senator-elect Gisele Fetterman wrote on Twitter on Monday and reacted in disbelief to the award.
The news outlet hailed Fetterman, whose usual campaign attire consisted of a hoodie, basketball shorts and sneakers, as a lawmaker who “will bring Carhartt to the Capitol,” a nod to the US workwear company.
“Totally liberal bias, [the New York Times]!” Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) jokingly wrote on twitter. “Not only do I have the best hair in Congress, but I brought it with me [Carhartt] to Capitol Hill four years ago.”
“How works [the New York Times] justify putting John Fetterman on the same list as the late Queen Elizabeth?” Sheridan Nolen, an aide to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), said on twitter.
“What is[the New York Times] Smoking?” Nachama Soloveichik, a DC political adviser, wrote incredulous.
Others on social media took the opportunity to snap Fetterman himself for his fashion choices.
“Nobody can believe that Fetterman is really stylish. He dresses like someone who hangs around a vape shop or supermarket all day,” writes author John Hawkins wrote in a tweet.
“2022 is the year of goblin mode. Dress up like a slob and make NYT’s Most Stylish People list,” said journalist Ian Miles Cheong pondered.
Pennsylvania’s outgoing lieutenant governor wasn’t the only Beltway guy or political leader to make the list.
Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson also made the list with the article citing her personal ornaments as standout accessories.
“The newest Supreme Court Justice brought statement necklaces to Marble Palace,” said the New York Times.
New York Mayor Eric Adams (D) has “it” according to the New York Times Style Desk and also made the top 93
“Call it ‘Swagger’ (like him), call it style: anyhow, there’s no denying the party mayor has it, along with a closet full of impeccably tailored suits,” the newspaper wrote.
While Vice President Kamala Harris wasn’t on the list, her stepdaughter Ella Emhoff was, with the newspaper highlighting her “caricatured personal style.”
“Not even the perimeter of the buttoned-up White House, where Ms. Emhoff’s stepmother works as vice president, could deter the knit designer and IMG model from her cartoonish personal style,” wrote the New York Times.
Fetterman, Jackson, Adams and Emhoff were added to the list of entertainment luminaries including Rihanna, Ben Affleck, Timothée Chalamet, Lil Nas X, Anne Hathaway and Brad Pitt.
“Love them or hate them, they all have at least one thing in common. At some point in the last 12 months, they got us talking: about how we dress, how we live, and how we express ourselves. We welcome dissenting opinions. But we are undoubtedly right,” the newspaper said of its 93 decisions.
