Steve Kornacki's Tie Was Being Held Together By Staples During Election Week, And It's Such A 2020 Mood

    Can we get a tie sponsorship for Steve Kornacki, please??

    It may feel like a thousand years ago already in 2020 time, but Election Day was just a little over a week ago. Wild, right?

    If you're anything like me, a certain Steve Kornacki was most definitely helping you maintain some kind of sanity during this chaotic time. Whether you were following this "chartthrob" on MSNBC, where — fueled by Diet Coke and the love of statistics — he covered the election for FIVE DAYS...

    Forget grabbing sleep, there's still votes coming in in PA. I'm heading back to the studio. In the old days, there was USA Up All Night. Tonight, it'll be MSNBC Up All Night. Come on along for the ride.

    I'm not convinced that he slept for more than like three hours that whole week, tbh.

    ....or joined Twitter in concluding that he is, in fact, a total "Korsnacki," Steve definitely came out as a hero during this election.

    People are calling Steve Kornacki “map daddy” I’m done

    Well good news, my fellow Kornheads! We finally got an update from a more rested Steve, who I sincerely hope has not lifted a finger since Saturday.

    You might've noticed that throughout his election coverage, Steve's khaki and striped tie look became kind of iconic — in part because it matched soooo perfectly with this meme of Charlie Day from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    You cannot tell me that Steve Kornacki did not dress for this look

    This morning, Steve took to Twitter to share a picture of his famous tie, which we learned was being held together by staples this whole time. That's right, y'all. This man was holding America AND his tie together simultaneously. Whew.

    Against all odds, the staples held through the election, but now I think the time has come to finally retire my tie

    MSNBC, I hope you are giving him a raise.

    Some people are really resonating with the tie, because it's 100% a physical manifestation of what it feels like to exist in 2020...

    @SteveKornacki That tie is a sympol of all the people that survived this election with no sleep

    Do I ever feel like a plastic bag? No, but I have definitely felt like this tie before.

    ...while others are suggesting the rightful resting place of the tie, like in the Smithsonian museum.

    Look, all I'm saying here is that it's time for us as a society to give back to Steve Kornacki. I need him to have the well-stocked, colorful tie collection of his dreams. And maybe his own line of khakis, too.

    Thank you for your service, Steve! May the rest of his 2020 be filled with more ties than he knows what to do with and nice, long naps.
