Why did actor Ashton Kutcher blow Senator John McCain a kiss at a Senate hearing yesterday? The two actually know each other, working together on human trafficking awareness issues. Senator McCain jokingly said to Mr. Kutcher that he appeared to be better looking in the movies than in person, to which Kutcher then blew the kiss. But seriously, Kutcher is the chairman of Thorn, a company that builds software to fight human trafficking and exploitation of children, and was testifying at a Senate hearing. https://goo.gl/TRJnSM
