While there are real issues happening in the world and on the very streets of the cities we call home, Democrats are fighting a much more horrific battle: sleeves in the House.
That’s right, while veterans starve in the street and healthcare is still unresolved, women of the Democratic party were busy fighting for their right to “bare arms” in the House because the patriarchy was forcing a time-honored dress code upon them.

In fact, they were so happy about their little historic victory that they lined up and took photo for social media:

Don’t you just love how happy they are that they literally changed the dress code to make it less classy? Sort of like everything the Democrats stand for.

Daily Wire reports:
The brouhaha over the dress code was triggered when Weekly Standard reporter Jenna Lifhits tried to use paper from her notebook as a way to cover up her shoulders, but was refused entrance to the House chambers. Independent Journal Review reporter Haley Byrd was ejected from the Speaker’s lobby for wearing a sleeveless dress.
On Thursday, House Speaker Paul Ryan indicated he would ask the sergeant-at-arms to modernize the dress code that also includes requiring men to wear a suit and tie in both the Speaker’s lobby and House chamber.
The celebration over the defiant escape to freedom from the patriarchy now will be etched in history alongside other historic moments such as the 1963 Martin Luther King-led March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
It is absolutely ludicrous that this was an argument. It’s literally SLEEVES and they are acting as if they were actually courageous to fight for that? Give me a break!
