The internet can’t get enough Ken Bone after he asked a fabulous question about energy policies during the second presidential debate on Sunday night.
Just a day after, Bone, sporting the exact red cable knit sweater he wore on the debate night, appeared on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
“Do you have any idea of how adorable you are?” Kimmel asked the 34-year-old old coal mine operator from St. Louis.
“That’s a definitive yes,” Bone responded.
Bone told Kimmel that people weren’t allowed to have phones inside the debate, and so he didn’t realize his face was all over the internet until he got back to his car and turned on his phone.
Kimmel told Bone that he’s fans are calling themselves “boneheads.”
“That’s fantastic. I’ve been calling my family that for years,” Bone told Kimmel, laughing.
Bone told the comedian he was going to wear an olive-colored suit the night of the debate, but since it didn’t fit him anymore, he went with the red sweater.
“I thought, ‘Wow, grandpa would be so proud if I wore this suit.’ But apparently I have gotten somewhat more fat since then, and when I got into my car, I split the seat out of my pants and destroyed my olive suit and I had to do an emergency wardrobe change,” Bone said.
Later, a man in the audience, dressed as Ken Bone, wearing a red sweater, black glasses and a mustache asked Bone a question on the show.
“How did you ever get such a fresh and cool style?” he asked.
“I would love to say, ‘I was born this way,'” Bone said. “I think the short answer is that my wife dresses me, like all great Americans.”
