John Mccain Plays Poker On Phone During Syria Testimony

1 post in this topic

Critics of a possible U.S. military intervention in Syria say any potential
campaign would be a serious gamble for American interests. But for John McCain,
the high stakes were apparently centered on his iPhone after McCain was photographed playing a game of video poker
during Tuesday’s Senate hearings on Syria.
 

“Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing - worst of all
I lost!” McCain wrote to his 1,822,263 Twitter followers after the
photo, taken by the Washington Post, began making the rounds on social
media.


 

Despite laughing off the incident, McCain’s poker moment has made him the
target of criticism from war opponents and landed him front and center on the Drudge Report.


 

McCain has quickly become the most prominent supporter of
President Obama’s call for military action against the Syrian regime
after
the government of Bashar al-Assad allegedly used chemical weapons against
civilians.


 

On Monday, McCain said a vote against Obama’s military proposal would be “catastrophic” for U.S. interests.


 

McCain is no stranger to card games. A 2008 report from the New York Times
noted McCain’s long-standing ties to the gambling industry.


 

And with his support for a congressional resolution authorizing military
action already a given, it’s perhaps understandable why McCain was easily
distracted during Tuesday’s testimony from Secretary of State John Kerry,
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen.
Martin Dempsey.


 

It’s unclear exactly when McCain was caught playing the video poker game. But
it wouldn’t be a shock if his attention were diverted during Hagel’s testimony.
After all, Hagel and McCain publicly feuded back in January when
Hagel was confirmed to his post.


 

McCain poker playing has already resulted in some humorous responses on
social media, including a
photo illustration
placing the Arizona senator in one of the famous “dogs
playing poker” paintings.

 

Really McCain... thanks for letting us know how unimportant this crisis in Syria is to you... Clearly, he must have been bored out of his mind, especially when he thought about the images of all those people that have died...
