We are all by now aware that US politics is ridiculous, and so the real hero of the yesterday’s clusterfuck of a Presidential debate was MVP, committed sweater wearer and uncommitted voter, Kenneth Bone.
The man with the greatest name in the world has overnight become a damn internet sensation, because America – and the world – fell in love with his oh-so-adorable nature and very nice and red sweater.
He appeared on CNN in the US this morning, and spoke about his Twitter follower count growing from ‘seven to several hundred‘. Plus, he explained why he chose that gorgeous, plush, truly iconic sweater.
His answer was, as you’d expect from the man we’ve grown to know very well in the past 18 hours, very honest and will likely make you want to give him a noogie.
He told CNN host Carol Costello,
“I had a really nice olive suit, and my mother would have been very proud to see me wearing on television, but apparently I have gained about 30 pounds.
And when I went to get in my car the morning of the debate I split the seat of my pants all the way open.
So the red sweater is plan B. I’m glad it worked out.”
Us too Kenny. Us too.
However, it might break your big political hearts to know that old mate Ken is still undecided on who he’s going to vote for – he was previously leaning more towards Donald Trump, but after that
shitshow debate, he’s been ‘impressed’ by Hillary Clinton:
“Well, I know people hate to hear this but I think I might be more undecided than ever.
I was leaning very heavily towards Donald Trump but Secretary Clinton impressed me with her composure and with a lot of her answers.
So now I think I’m just going to wait for the last political debate and in this cycle you never know what could happen.”
