Audience member Ken Bone becomes internet sensation following second presidential debate


ST. LOUIS (CNN) – Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s favorable ratings may or may not have changed after sunday’s debate, but social media users appear to have an overwhelmingly favorable opinion of one of the audience members.

His name is Ken Bone and he is now a meme.

Bone’s question to Clinton and Trump was about energy policy, but his instant internet fame seemed to be more a result of his red cardigan, black-rimmed glasses, and affable demeanor.

Within minutes, someone had created a Facebook Page. and, of course, a parody Twitter account.

By Monday morning, there was even a folk song dedicated to Bone.
