- Chuck Schumer wore an electric blue suit to Joe Biden’s joint address to Congress Wednesday night
- Several social media users swooned over the suit, describing it as ‘beautiful’ and heaping praise on the stylish senator
- Others mocked the Senate Majority Leader, claiming his clothing was the same color as the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street
Joe Biden delivered his first joint address to Congress Wednesday night, unveiling plans for a $2.3 trillion ‘blue collar jobs’ bill.
And while many balked at the cost of the President’s proposal, others were distracted by the surprising sartorial choices of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.
The New York senator, 70, turned heads in an electric blue suit which he paired with patterned socks and shiny leather loafers.
The eye-catching ensemble caught the attention of Twitter users, one of whom claimed that the suit was the same color as Cookie Monster from Sesame Street.

Some praised Schumer’s sense of style, saying he stood out amid other male politicians who played it safe in bland black.
‘I want that suit,’ one cooed. ‘That’s the shade of blue suit I’m missing and I need to level up.’
‘When do we have the national conversation about Chuck Schumer’s suit?’ another asked, adding a GIF that read ‘Dear God, it’s beautiful!’
As blue is the color associated with Democrats, other viewers claimed the suit was deliberately chosen by Schumer to signify his liberal credentials.
One even speculated that the brighter the blue the more radical the policies that Schumer was endorsing.
‘I believe the correct name for the color of Chuck Schumer’s suit is ‘radical liberal blue’, they wrote.
Meanwhile, other style spectators wondered whether Republican Liz Cheney was also sending a subtle message with her choice to also wear a blue suit.
The GOP Rep. has been an outspoken critic of her own party over their failure to critique the Capitol Riots on January 6.
‘It would be wrong to conclude anything from Liz Cheney’s bright blue suit, right?’ one Twitter user asked, implying that she may be showing her support for the Democrats.
