In Bernie's defense, do we know he wasn't wearing a suit under that parka?
Garth Brooks, though, sure he was on brand, but you can still wear your big ass belt buckle and cowboy hat with nicer pants. Even jeans that had the proper inseam would have been an improvement. Lady Gaga's enormous skirt and enormous brooch were on brand but entirely appropriate for the occasion, for example. He could have definitely been dressed more inappropriately (like Ed Sheeran in the article someone posted above), and he didn't look like a slob, but how far off does your attire have to be from the dress code, unwritten though it may be, before it's "okay" for people to find fault with it? What Garth Brooks wore at the inauguration was exactly what my dad considered formalwear when I was growing up, but when he was called upon to attend a formal event to accept a national award on behalf of an organization he was a part of, he went out and bought a suit. If my blue-collar, rural dad can buy a goddamn suit, then so can Garth Brooks.
At the time, George Clooney said that he was the worst Batman. I don't agree. The movie was bad, but he wasn't the worst Batman (at the time). I thought he was still better than Val Kilmer.
In related news, in addition to all of Kamala Harris's firsts, I'm excited to have in such a prominent position a woman who kept her own last name after getting married.
