“What does Ken Bone think of all this?” asked nobody ever.
Well, almost nobody. Newsweek just checked in with Bone, whose 2016 “15 minutes of fame” as an undecided voter was sullied by the discovery of his icky Reddit history, and found he’s pretty much sticking to the same message he espoused four years ago.

“We kind of got what we expected. In a way, we almost got what we deserved, because we’ve all played our part in raising the temperature of political discourse,” he said. “It leads to a couple of people who are probably older than your grandparents, yelling at each other and telling each other to shut up, and talking over each other like drunk relatives at Thanksgiving.

Jorgenson, the Libertarian Party nominee, gladly accepted his vote:
