House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday shot back at a Republican lawmaker who criticized the white outfits a group of Democratic women wore to President Trump’s address to Congress.

“., thank you for illustrating why we so badly need to honor ,” Pelosi tweeted. “.”

{mosads}Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) mocked Democratic women on Wednesday for their decision to wear white to the president’s Tuesday night address before a joint session of 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

“But by the way, did you notice how poorly several of them were dressed as well?” he said during the town hall. 

“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.
