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.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
