Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) criticized the white outfits a group of Democratic women wore to President Trump’s address Tuesday night to Congress.

Responding to a constituent during a radio town hall Wednesday, Cramer said Democrats and Republicans could work together on several bipartisan issues before taking a swing at the female lawmakers who donned white outfits to Trump’s speech, Politico reported.

“It is a syndrome. There is no question, there is a disease associated with the notion that a bunch of women would wear bad-looking white pantsuits in solidarity with Hillary Clinton to celebrate her loss. You cannot get that weird.”

Dozens of female lawmakers on Tuesday night wore white, a symbol of the women’s suffrage movement, during the president’s address to a joint session of Congress.
 
Hillary Clinton made a similar gesture earlier this year, wearing a white pantsuit to Trump’s inauguration. She also wore white at other major moments during the presidential campaign, including when she became the first woman to accept a major party’s presidential nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last year.
 
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the decision was a “statement of values.”
 
“It associates ourselves with our suffragette mothers,” she said. “The color of white, the color purple.”
