Sunday night’s second Presidential debate was particularly vicious, but the real winner of the event wasn’t either nominee├óΓé¼┬ª
It was undecided voter and the Internet’s newest sweetheart, Ken Bone (pictured above)!
Among those truth seekers was Mr. Bone, who asked the candidates an insightful question about energy policy:
“What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job layoffs?”
Maybe it’s the name, maybe it’s because he looks like everyone’s favorite A.P. History teacher… whatever the reason, there’s no denying America fell in love with the cardigan-wearing vigilante.
On Monday, Bone appeared on CNN to talk about becoming the new face of democracy. While the internet hero admitted he’s still undecided, he plans to use his platform for good, saying:

Bone also explained the reason behind wearing his power cardigan was to cover up a wardrobe malfunction, adding:
Ha! His honestly is so refreshing!
We don’t know about you, but we’re totally feeling a #Bone2020 campaign right about now!

Was so sad and ashamed throughout the entire spectacle but then KEN BONE rose like a Phoenix from America’s ashes and there’s laughter again
