Millennials on the internet are obsessed with Kenneth “Ken” Bone, aka “red sweater audience guy,” from the second presidential debate on Sunday night.
Bone has achieved trending hipster meme status thanks to these millennials and media elites who are frequently enthralled by the adorable quaintness of “average” Americans who watch NCIS and haven’t even listened to the new Bon Iver album yet.
Even more adorably, his definition of “photography” is using one of those cheap disposable cameras like a loser, not taking pictures of old barns with a $4,000 vintage Nikon.

If I don't see at least two Slutty Ken Bones this Halloween, I'll be disappointed in my country. https://t.co/3bl4p9iM8E

First of all, Kenneth “Ken” Bone is not a hero. He’s a total fraud. He’s being widely praised for his bold fashion savvy, but it turns out the snazzy red zip-neck sweater was not his first choice, it was an emergency back-up option.
Ken Bone says he wore the red sweater as a plan B to the debate because he “split the seat of my pants wide open” https://t.co/H9eL2wi5as

He was originally planning to wear an “olive suit.” GROSS! This was a presidential debate, for crying out loud, not an insurance convention.

Bone was called on during the debate to ask the candidates a 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 loss for fossil power plant workers?” Bone asked.
Nice question, Bone. Did you copy it from the end-of-chapter “discussion” section of a high school politics textbook?
Most terrifyingly, Bone’s “energy” question did not mention the fact that President Obama has, according to some analysts, been using “clean energy” wind turbines to generate powerful force fields that the military can use to engineer hurricanes, like the one that almost destroyed Donald Trump’s luxurious estate in Florida.
Does Ken Bone believe everything our government claims about hurricanes and the mysterious energy that produces them? Or has the Obama administration already moved to silence him through coercion? Probably the latter, because Bone appears to have conveniently changed his mind about how he’s voting.
Ken Bone: “I was leaning very heavily towards Donald Trump, but Secretary Clinton impressed me with her composure and a lot of her answers."

Kenneth Bone? More like Kenneth Throne (OF LIES).
