Sinema goes viral for wearing ‘Dangerous Creature’ sweater on Senate floor
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) went viral on Tuesday for wearing a pink “Dangerous Creature” sweater while presiding on the Senate floor.
The statement piece caused such a stir that Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was caught on a microphone telling her: “You’re breaking the internet.”
“Good,” the Democrat responded with a shrug.
The sweater was from a U.K. brand called Iggy and Burt, which thanked the senator for choosing to support an independent brand “and make a statement!”
The phrase is a reference to the famous Lisa Kleypas quote “a well-read woman is a dangerous creature.”
Sinema has emerged as a style icon during her time on Capitol Hill. She is regularly seen wearing colorful dresses, glasses and lipstick. During coronavirus lockdowns last year, the blonde Arizonan began wearing bright wigs to cover her darker hues while also reminding her constituents to avoid salons.
Dozens of social media users, including “The View” co-host and Arizona native Meghan McCain, took to Twitter to compliment and applaud Sinema’s style choice.

I assume this refers to how she is dangerous to anyone who needs higher wages, a path to citizenship, COVID relief, protection against racially discriminatory voter suppression law or collective bargaining rights (due to her opposition to filibuster reform)

Dangerous to whom? The Democrats?
Dangerous to what? Unless it’s to the Jim Crow filibuster & white supremacists, this is some lame-ass posturing.
