WASHINGTON (AP) — Sometimes senators need a diversion from even the weightiest of topics. For Sen. John McCain during Tuesday's hearing on Syria, it was a game on his iPhone.

The Washington Post posted a picture taken during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing and reported that it shows the Arizona Republican playing poker on his phone. Only his hands and iPhone were visible.

Shortly afterward, McCain came clean in a sarcastic tweet posted on his Twitter account that began with the word, "Scandal!"

McCain wrote that he'd been caught playing on his phone during a hearing that, he quickly pointed out, exceeded three hours.

The senator added, "Worst of all, I lost!"

All I can say is cool he likes Internet poker! :)
 
Surely the senate should demand his removal from office, after all, he is funding terrorists and organised crime:rolleyes:

IF it can be dismissed so lightly, surely ALL Americans have the right to play poker to unwind, or ease the boredom of long meetings etc. Why just poker, why not Mega Moolah if they prefer that type of game.
 
I can't believe when war and thousands of lives are at stake, he's playing a game.

My favourite comment on the issue was:

"You were playing for real money?"
"No, it was taxpayer money
