Actor Ben Affleck visited D.C. this week testify on Capitol Hill and star in a super awkward GIF with John Kerry. “Your credibility is really remarkable because of the depth of your commitment,” a starstruck Sen. John McCain told Affleck during the Congo hearing.
McCain sent a predictably fawning tweet, but he attached this hilariously awkward photo. On purpose, apparently.

Is the bromance off to a shaky start?

Affleck has made nine trips to the Congo and hopes to travel there again soon. He praised the work of former President George W. Bush on African issues as well as the effort of Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
“Our Republican friends have perhaps been better on Africa than my party,” said Affleck, a Democrat.
