Sen. McCain Was Playing Poker on iPhone During Senate Hearing on Syria Intervention

It's not like anything is going to change his mind at this point anyway


US Senator John McCain has been caught playing poker on his iPhone during a key hearing about the possible use of military force in Syria.

He played a few hands under the table during Tuesday's Senate Foreign Relations Committee meeting, which was hearing from the likes of Secretary of State John Kerry and Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel.

Despite being snapped by an eagle-eyed Washington Post photographer, the influential senator—who ran for President in 2008—laughed off the matter.
