Former UN ambassador John Bolton appeared before the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and joked about a nuclear strike on President Obama’s home town.

“The fact is on foreign policy I don’t think President Obama thinks it’s a priority,” said Bolton. “He said during the campaign he thought Iran was a tiny threat. Tiny, tiny depending on how many nuclear weapons they are ultimately able to deliver on target. Its, uh, its tiny compared to the Soviet Union, but is the loss of one American city. Pick one at random — Chicago — is that a tiny threat?”
