Who is Ken Bone? Viral Debate Star Explains His Red Sweater

Ken Bone became the viral star of the Second Presidential Debate and the undecided voter is opening up about why he chose to wear a red sweater.

The Missouri native sat in the front row on the debate stage and asked a question about how the candidates – Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – will address energy needs while keeping the environment and jobs in mind.

Ken called into a St. Louis radio station on Monday morning to explain his outfit choice.

“The sweater was actually the backup plan,” Bone said. “I had this really lovely olive suit that I was going to wear, and I split the seam of my pants as I was getting into my car to leave for the debate. So the sweater was plan B.”

When asked how he split the pants, Ken said, “I was just fat. Happy consequence of eating like an athlete and not training like one.”

Ken says he is still does not know who he will vote for, but he “thought Secretary Clinton was very impressive with some of her answers.”

Watch Ken‘s interview with CNN below!

    You Dems never admit defeat, the Reps are more honorable, they accepted that Trump lost the first one, when everybody said he beat her good.
