John Bolton, a George W. Bush-era ambassador to the United Nations and foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign, has been dropping hints to the media that he might want to run for president in 2016. In the meantime, he’s palling around with once-Republican presidential candidate and former House member Thaddeus McCotter on Fox News. On Wednesday, Kennedy, a 1990s-era MTV VJ turned libertarian champion, asked the pair to weigh in on Cuddlr, a Grindr or Tinder-like app that helps you find strangers to cuddle with. The conversation was…strange. But don’t worry, Bolton made sure to get in an attack on President Obama for discussing climate change before they went to commercial break.
