That sweater-wearing teddy bear who took the internet by storm after the second presidential schoolyard fight extended his 15 minutes of fame a little bit longer. In the wake of a truly embarrassing display of where American politics have ended up, the rise of Ken Bone is exactly what the people of America need to cling to. Without his wardrobe malfunctions, the reality of this election is just too grim.
He continued his one-man quest to make the internet smile on Friday night with a jovial appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Videoing in from St. Louis, Bone was obviously a little nervous projected up on that screen, but he got less stilted as he went on, coming off like the nicest dad in the PTA. While he is still undecided and thinks that Trump may be more in line with his economic views, Bone makes a pretty good case against voting for the Republican nominee:
“I would really hate for anyone’s rights to be taken back. We’ve fought so hard for marriage equality and rights expanded to more Americans, and it would be unconscionable for me to see those taken away by a Supreme Court justice appointed by Donald Trump.”
What is definitely not undecided is the fact that there is definitely going to be a Ken Bone at every Halloween party this year.
