The power plant worker, who became a viral star for wearing a red sweater during the second televised presidential debate, refused to give up an answer when asked about his ballot on “Real Time.” But gave a compelling reason for not doing so.
“I promised before the election that I wouldn’t say who I voted for because, like it or not, we’re obsessed with celebrities in this country, and even like 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.
“You’re an informer, that is your job to inform people, educate them, entertain them,” he told Maher. “I’m a random dude who works at the power plant, people don’t need to be informed by me.”
Maher also quizzed Bone, who he described as a “gettable voter,” on what he really thought of the candidates and what the Democrats should do to sway him in the 2020 presidential election.
