In a year filled with political bombshells, s**t suddenly went nuclear, thanks to the reveal of Donald Trump’s “grab them by the p***y” tape last week (A.K.A. Pussygate). But that wasn’t the big news out of Sunday night’s presidential debate. Something even more epic happened when a man named Ken Bone asked a perfectly normal question, and social media exploded.
So who is Ken Bone? Chris Hardwick couldn’t resist calling him a “living Christmas album,” whose adorable earnestness managed to melt America’s heart. Watch @midnight panelist Brian Posehn try to solve the mystery behind this man’s internet-breaking red sweater.
One segment dedicated to Ken Bone was not enough for Hardwick, who has declared him an American folk hero. In #HashtagWars, the panelists Danielle Panabaker, Kurt Braunohler and Posehn made up fun “facts” about the internet’s latest darling.
However, this has been the one of the very few bright spots during a heated election season. And we still need someone to give us the cold, hard facts and analysis from Sunday as well as a deep dive into the Republican Party’s major fallout with Trump resulting from Pussygate. Allow The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah to take you down this dark road.
Hmm, we may all want to consider Ken Bone as a write-in candidate.
