McCain Plays Poker on his iPhone During Syria War Senate Hearing - September 3, 2013

McCain: "Syria? Meh, who cares? Yes or NO vote, we'll liberate them with a little shock and awe... Is this bastard trying to bluff me again?"


Edit: I kept wondering what he was looking at when I saw the hearing. He was sitting besides Rand Paul and kept looking down. And yes, it is McCain, just look at those gaunt scrawny old hands...

Edit 2: Here's him chuckling for getting caught with chief Cionist News Network propagandist Wolf Blitzer:

The people who voted for him should be held accountable.

This man, brought to the world, by the very enlightened voters of his district.

American ignorance at its finest.


should have left this piece

should have left this piece of crap in vietnam POW camp.

I keep wondering how much stock or investments does he and kerry

have in the gas line?

And I thought maybe

he was posting here on DP to support his War Cause.

Any poker players out there ...

recognize the graphics.

If this was actually a cash game, he could have committed several crimes.

Senator John McCain plays poker on his IPhone during a U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearing where Secretary of State JohnKerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey testify concerning the use of force in Syria, on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

This A-hole is completely unfit for office at any level.

This incident is just further proof of John McCain's total disconnect from reality. He can't sit through a 3 hour briefing where people's lives are on the line without distracting himself with an I-Phone game?

How pompous. How arrogant. What a tremendous tool this man has become. To think that he was at one time imprisoned and tortured because of the bad decisions and lies spread by another set of A-holes.

The Syrians that we kill with our cruise missiles won't have a chance to be dealt a full house or to cash in their chips.

The highest deliberative body in the land has the intellectual depth of an MTV music awards show and this picture makes that abundantly clear.

I'm telling you... It's a contest...

I'm telling you... It's a contest...

It's a contest between them to see who can show himself as the biggest son of a b:tch.

Welcome to the Twilight Zone.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I bet a Rand staffer snapped the photo!

They were, after all, sitting right next to each other.

Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing - worst of all I lost!

5:29 PM - 3 Sep 2013

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

3+ Hours

You were elected, and being paid, to pay attention, fuqtard.

Damage Control...

"Oh, would you look at that. He busted himself, so it's not that big of a deal. He even sarcastically called it 'scandal!' therefore it's not. See? Plus, 3+ hours is a looooong time. I feel sorry for him. Haha, he even said he lost, so he really didn't mean anything by all of this. Sometimes I play solitaire at work when the boss isn't looking. He was just being human, like me."

He's trying to make light of it first and make himself relatable, so it turns into a non-issue with the public. Douche-bag 101. Plus, 3+ hours IS a long time to sit through something you know is going to happen anyway. THAT'S why he's playing games.

You didn't lose, John. We all lost when you entered into politics. If games are more important than the American people, and you're so bored with politics, why don't you retire and take a nap? You'll be doing us all a favor.

Don't confuse me with the facts I have investments to protect

(Implied). What a POS!

I'm sorry but this shit

I'm sorry but this shit pisses me off. My friend died in Baghdad because of lies and this asshole plays poker when we are on the brink of a new war that will surely take down our country from within.
Why can't they at least pretend not to be evil war mongering pricks?

Because his mind is made up

His puppeteer told him which way to vote so he doesn't feel the need to pay attention. And, yes, it is completely sickening.
