Republicans and Democrats unite to promote Uber... and kittens

John Kasich

In a bid for appeal among millennials, two presidential candidates you probably know very little about are promoting Uber's new kitten delivery stunt. In an ugly race, at least Republicans and Democrats can join hands as part of Uber's brand.
