Some men just can't help reducing a woman to her appearance.
Well, U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona does have amazing fashion sense in addition to her political acumen. However, Sinema, the first out bisexual senator (and previously first out bi person in the U.S. House), has been wearing colorful wigs lately not simply for fashion but to emphasize the importance of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic and show solidarity with those who aren't going to hair salons.
She first sported a wig in the Senate May 4, in a purplish-pink hue. Then Tuesday, she wore a bluish-green wig, and CNN journalist Ali Zaslav tweeted a picture of Sinema clarifying the color to MSNBC's Garrett Haake. Conservative political consultant Matt Mackowiak, however, thought wearing the wig amounted to conduct unbecoming a senator.
Mackowiak got some stinging replies, though, including this one from U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, showing a picture of his colleague Matt Gaetz wearing a gas mask in the House.
\u201c@MattMackowiak This is a sitting U.S. Congressman? Did you tweet about him?\u201d— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@Rep. Eric Swalwell) 1595354300
There were several other pointed responses.
\u201c@MattMackowiak This is the current President of the United States:\u201d— FierceWarriorNStilettos (@FierceWarriorNStilettos) 1595353978
\u201c@renato_mariotti @MattMackowiak The modern gop is far more concerned with women expressing themselves than a president who\u2019s so owned by Russia that he allows a kgb agent to put bounties on US troops\u201d— Renato Mariotti (@Renato Mariotti) 1595354325
\u201c@MattMackowiak Shhhh, nobody tell @MattMackowiak that plenty of senators have worn wigs, some of them dyed with various colors, in the 18th century when this country had just been founded...\u201d— Stephen Barton (@Stephen Barton) 1595365910
