Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) showed up on Saturday to greet President Joe Biden donned in basketball shorts and a hoodie during the president’s visit to Pennsylvania

Fetterman, who defeated Dr. Mehmet Oz in the November 2022 midterm elections, did not change up his typical attire of choice as Biden made a stop in the Keystone State to hold a political rally at Pennsylvania Convention Center for the AFL-CIO Constitutional Convention. Fetterman appeared alongside a number of other Democrat officials, including Governor Josh Shapiro, Sen. Bob Casey, and Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, who all wore suits to greet Biden on an airport tarmac. 


Fetterman, who spent over a month in a hospital for depression earlier this year, has remained committed to the hoodie-shorts combo, even voting from the doorway of the Democratic cloakroom or the side entrance to avoid having to comply with the Senate dress code. 

Biden stopped by I-95 to see where part of the critical interstate collapsed last week after a truck explosion. Shapiro said that the bridge would be repaired in several weeks. 


Fetterman, who suffered a stroke prior to his election to the Senate, struggled to speak at an event after Biden stopped by the I-95 bridge. 

“[Biden] is here to commit to work with the governor and the delegadation [sic] to make sure that we get this fixed quick, fast, as well, too. This is a president that is committed to infructure [sic], yeah, and then on top of that the jewel kind of a law of the infration [sic] bill that is going to make sure there is going to be bridges like this, all across America,” Fetterman said

He also introduced Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA) as “Boyle Bile.” 

Fetterman has repeatedly struggled to speak during his time in the Senate. On Wednesday, he struggled to discuss the interstate collapse during a committee hearing. 

“’I, uh, would just, um, really like to, you know — the 95, 95, 95. You know?” he said at a Senate Environmental Committee hearing. “Obviously, you’re pretty much preoccupied with 95, and I, I certainly am too … and we know it’s a major artery, not just for Pennsylvania, but for the East Coast.”
