Here’s Ashton Kutcher Blowing a Kiss to John McCain
Celebrity and politics both make for some unexpected alliances, and sometimes some unexpected air kisses. While Ashton Kutcher and John McCain definitely don’t agree on everything, they do have some political common ground in the fight against human trafficking.On Wednesday, Kutcher came face-to-face with the Arizona Senator during a hearing on the subject, and the two had a little bit of a bro moment as McCain joked that Kutcher isn’t as hot in person and Kutcher blew him a kiss in response. Skip to :56 seconds into the video below to see the full exchange.
The light moment came in the middle of a much darker discussion. Kutcher was there to testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about progress made in fighting modern slavery. Kutcher is chairman of an organization called Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, which builds software to help fight human trafficking. He co-founded the organization in 2009 with then-wife Demi Moore.
While speaking to the committee Wednesday he told them, “As part of my anti-trafficking work, I’ve met victims in Russia, I’ve met victims in India, I’ve met victims that have been trafficked from Mexico, victims from New York and New Jersey and all across our country. I’ve been on FBI raids where I’ve seen things that no person should ever see.”
McCain and several other legislators thanked Kutcher for his work.
