Thanks to the sincere and earnest manner with which Ken Bone asked his energy related question to the two presidential candidates, Bone has become an Internet sensation. He has even made it on to the first page of Reddit! Now, Redditors want an AMA session with Bone. Bone’s popularity has exploded in the last few days, and his red sweater is imprinted on hearts everywhere.

People started watching the second presidential debate on October 9, 2016 assuming that one of the two candidates, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, would be the winner. However, after 90 minutes it was clear that the winner was a gentleman in a red fleece sweater named Kenneth Bone or simply Ken Bone. No one knows why Bone became the hero of the evening, but he won more American hearts than either candidate has! Maybe it was his innocence and the seriousness with which he asked his question, or maybe it was the fact that he split the pants of the suit he was going to wear, on his way to the debate! Whatever it is, it’s evident that Bone has become an overnight Internet sensation, and people still can’t stop talking about him. Now, Ken Bone has made it to the first page of Reddit!

Hero to Millions

In an evening high on cynicism, Bone’s sincere manner and the interest with which he asked his question has made him a hero to millions of people. Since the evening of the debate, he has been tweeted about more than tens of thousands of times! He has also become the inspiration for a number of Facebook pages, many of them with thousands of fans of their own. And let’s not even get started on the many internet memes that have been created based on this fleecy fellow!
