Nancy Pelosi wears same outfit to oversee Trump’s second impeachment


On Wednesday, Ms Pelosi appeared at the House impeachment vote wearing a black skirt suit and a blue and black floral mask. She paired the outfit with a gold necklace.

As confirmed by her office in a statement to People, Ms Pelosi first wore the suit and necklace on 18 December 2019, when the House passed two articles of impeachment against the president for abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

While today’s outfit was nearly identical, she did leave off the symbolic brooch she wore while presiding over the president’s first impeachment.

The speaker’s brooch, which sent a message of its own, was in the image of the Mace of the United States House of Representatives, a totem of the body’s legislative authority.

Ms Pelosi also wore the brooch during the president’s 2019 State of the Union address.

On social media, the speaker’s recent sartorial choice has been praised, with many applauding the symbolic outfit.

“Did Pelosi wear the same outfit for both impeachments? HELL YES SHE DID,” one person tweeted.

Another said: “I love that Madame Speaker Nancy Pelosi has an impeachment outfit.”

Ms Pelosi chose the outfit to oversee an impeachment vote accusing the president of inciting last week’s violent Capitol riots.
