If one good thing came out of Sunday night’s second presidential debate, it is the discovery of the national treasure that is Ken Bone. This American hero and his infamous quarter-zip sweater asked candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton a question as an undecided voter during the televised event, and set our hearts on fire.
On Monday night, he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where the host asked him if he knew just how adorable he was in the eyes of the American people.
“That’s a definitive yes,” Bone quipped, while wearing his signature cherry red pullover.
He also revealed that he originally intended to wear an olive green suit to the debates, but said, “Apparently I’ve gotten somewhat more fat since then. When I got into my car, I split the seat of my pants.”
Kimmel also asked Bone if the debate helped him to decide on who he’d be voting for come Nov. 8.
“I think I’m more undecided than I was before,” he admitted. “I had to kind of put my head down while mom and dad were arguing over Thanksgiving dinner last night. This is an unusual political cycle. It’s been so negative. And I try to base my decisions off positive things and neither of them have given me many.”
Bone went further, explaining his political leanings, saying, “Donald Trump is maybe more in line with my economic interests, because I work in coal, electricity. But I’d really hate for anyone’s rights to be taken back. We fought so hard to get marriage equality and rights expanded to more Americans. It’d be unconscionable for me to see those taken away by a Supreme Court justice appointed by Donald Trump.”
His response provoked a huge cheer from the studio audience. Bone also talked about meeting Bill Clinton, saying, “I would have voted for him if I wasn’t 12 years old when he ran.” Watch the clip now to see the endearing interview!
