The Man, The Myth, The Legend: Ken Bone

The second presidential debate hosted on Oct. 9, 2016 was packed with questions in a town hall format. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump did their best to answer questions from the audience while continuing to degrade each other throughout the debate. However we all know who the clear winner was – it was Ken Bone.ken-bone-3

All dressed up for the occasion in his brilliant red sweater, Ken Bone eagerly took the microphone and asked a question on the candidates’ energy policies. As soon as the camera panned in on his face, Bone took the world by storm.

The sweater, the glasses, and the mustache all put together made this man a legend in the hearts of Americans.

He quickly became prime meme material, and instantly internet famous. He conducted plenty of interviews after the debate was over, one in which he revealed that the infamous red sweater was actually his second outfit of choice. The olive-green suit that he had planned on wearing had ripped just hours before the debate.ken-bone-4

He has also had t-shirts made in memory of his winning of the debate.ken-bone-2

The third and final presidential debate is tonight, Oct. 19, 2016 at 9:00 p.m.

Hopefully we have not seen the last of Ken Bone.
