Bill Maher Wants to Convince Ken Bone He ‘Should Have Voted for Hillary Instead of Godzilla’ (Video)

“I’m a random dude that works at the power plant; people don’t need to be informed by me,” red-sweatered guy from the presidential debate says on “Real Time”

Bill Maher is on a mission to convince independent voters from the 2016 presidential election that, maybe, Donald Trump wasn’t the best choice for the office. And Maher is starting with the best-known independent, undecided voter of them all: Ken Bone.

“You are the person we – the liberals – need to get if we want to turn this country around,” Maher told Bone during “Real Time” Friday night. “I want to convince you that you should have voted for Hillary [Clinton] instead of Godzilla.”

“I tell you this much, I didn’t vote for Godzilla,” Bone said.

Bone and his red cardigan became an internet phenom during the second presidential debate when he articulated a question to the then-candidates. Between his everyman quality and that bright crimson sweater, he briefly became America’s darling.

Maher persisted in trying to find out who Bone voted for, but the power plant operator from Illinois kept his lips sealed.

“Like it or not, we are obsessed with celebrities in this country, and even an F-list celebrity like me, people put stock in my opinion and it’s not fair to the democratic process if I tell them what to believe,” Bone said. “I’m a random dude that works at the power plant. People don’t need to be informed by me.”

And Maher still pushed… to no avail.

“I’ve been exposed to politics enough to know how to not answer questions,” Bone said, getting a laugh out of the audience.
