Peter Schiff critiqued Ukraine’s president for casual attire when addressing Congress.
Schiff ruffled plenty of feathers on Twitter following the Ukrainian president’s address to Congress on March 16, The Hill reported. After he criticized President Volodymyr Zelensky’s casual army-green t-shirt as a form of disrespect to Congress and to the U.S., many responded with support for the Ukrainian leader as he faces war with Russia.
Innovation and leadership expert Gina Scott Ligon has said that Zelensky’s casual appearance while speaking on video calls should be the norm for world leaders, MarketWatch reported. In the NPR program “On Point,” Ligon stated that currently when people relate to authority figures, “There’s a lack of trust, and there’s a hunger for authenticity.”
Ligon is also the director of the National Counterterrorism Innovation, Technology and Education Center at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. She noted that the simple shirt contrasted with a government building in the background helps make Zelensky “the anti-hero and the anti-government hero.”
