Not this:


So how does our poor, tropical congressman deal with the current ice age?

(The scarves, not the constituents.)

And when he is wandering around with other members.

He wears them to protests.

He wears them during interviews!

He is pretty much a fashion icon and the pashmina king of Capitol Hill.

His press secretary Nicole Cueto tells BuzzFeed that that the scarves are "fashionable and functional."

So stay strong, Joe!
