Another election day, another nighttime highlight for “chartthrob” Steve Kornacki and his signature khakis.
The NBC News and MSNBC characters, who won audiences hearts with their perfect protection of the presidential election in November 2020, are back to send the results of this year’s midterm elections.
“Okay, I just lost the Powerball, so I guess I’ll work tonight,” He tweeted on Tuesday. “The first elections close at 6 p.m. EST and we’ll be live from then on until… who knows when? It’ll be a journey, hope you join in and connect.”
Recently a pair of khaki pants, a white button-down shirt and a intact (for now) Tie, Kornaki launched her defenses for the race in Massachusetts and the abortion measure in Kansas on MSNBC Tuesday afternoon. But Twitter customers are already celebrating the return of the information king.
One Twitter user wrote on Monday: “Happy Election Day to all my Steve Kornaki girls.” Journalist’s video edit pointing to your whiteboard set Flo Milli’s “Beef Flomix.”
“Happy Steve Kornacki Appreciation Day to all who celebrate,” tweeted Another commenter.
During the 2020 presidential election, Twitter had a lot of love for Kornaki and CNN’s John King, who firmly defended viewers in the form of the results. Kornacki’s coverage caught the attention of model and author Chrissy Teigen, who was impressed by the data analyst’s on-air stamina. ,
“I honestly don’t know how Steve is still going, but I’m ready to die,” Teigen tweeted,
Kornacki’s time in the spotlight proved successful, but not just for him. The Gap confirmed to The Times in November 2020 that sales of its generic khaki pants soared after Kornacki wore them on Election Day.
A Gap spokesperson noted at the time, “We saw a dramatic increase in online traffic, and within a day, we saw a 90% increase in the number of Straight Fit Palomino Brown Khakis sold online.”
Months after the 2020 election, Kornacki re-committed to NBC News and MSNBC, signing a million-dollar contract with Guardian firm NBCUniversal in May 2021. With several new gigs under a four-year deal, Kornacki’s followers can’t just rely on Election Day to hear their evaluations.
