On Sunday, October 9, America’s favorite undecided voter became an instant Internet star. Ken Bone is one of a couple dozen audience members of the second 2016 Presidential Debate, but his mild mannerisms and stepdad-esque appearance won over the hearts of many from his first appearance on stage.
The debate was held in a town hall format, and Ken had his fifteen seconds in the limelight when he posed a question about energy policy. Following this, fans unanimously decided him the unofficial winner of the debate.
Did you miss it? For a brief moment, the nation was bathed in the warm aura of a well-rounded, politically-involved citizen in a red power-cardigan. And his name simply rolls off the tongue: Ken Bone.
Fans are so enamored with 34-year-old Bone, that he is becoming one of the hottest Halloween costumes of the year. His iconic look revolves around his red Izod jacket, so incorporating that into any look will be a win.
