John McCain

Caught red-handed! John McCain was seen playing poker during a Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing about a possible U.S. military strike on Syria.

On Tuesday, Washington Post photographer Melina Mara said McCain was “passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing.” They then posted the photo evidence.

Fall TV: Hot scoop!

So what did McCain have to say for himself?

“Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing – worst of all I lost!” hetweeted.

Are you surprised?
