Ken Bone Becomes Star of Presidential Debate In St. Louis
Ken Bone, a native of Granite City, Illinois and a resident of the Bellevill/Shiloh area, was the unanimous winner of last night’s Presidential debate at Washington University of St. Louis. As one of the undecided voters invited to ask a question of candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump last night, Bone asked a question about the energy policies of each candidate.
“What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job layoffs?”
In an interview with The Morning After on KFNS this morning, Bone revealed that the red sweater he wore last night wasn’t actually part of the outfit he had initially picked out. Bone, who works at a coal plant, said that he was wearing a olive suit, but tore the pants getting into his car yesterday leaving his home for the debate.
Bone also spoke about his disposable camera.

Bone said that the undecided voters weren’t allowed to have any electronics with them, but they were given disposable cameras by the organizers to record their experience.
Bone also had an interview with CNN scheduled for this morning and will be appearing with Jimmy Kimmel tonight via remote. Programs across the country have also been reaching out to InsideSTL to try to contact Bone.
Barstool Sports called the Ken Bone interview with TMA this morning very important in recapping it via host Tim McKernan’s tweets.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Calls Kaepernick Protest “Dumb”
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has a new book out featuring a collection of her writings over the years. Ginsburg sat down with Katie Couric on Yahoo! News recently to talk about her life, the book and her love on law. Justice Ginsburg also touched on her friendship with the late Justice Scalia.
Perhaps the most noteworthy part of the interview featured her calling the protests of the National Anthem by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick “really dumb” but acknowledging that they couldn’t be arrested for it.
“If they want to be stupid, there’s no law that should be preventive. If they want to be arrogant, there’s no law that prevents them from that. What I would do is strongly take issue with the point of view that they are expressing when they do that.”
Justice Ginsburg is famously not a fan of Donald Trump and praised Hillary Clinton in the interview. Ginsburg was nominated for the Supreme Court in 1993 by President Bill Clinton.
