While the Congress was busy discussing military intervention in Syria in its first public hearing on Tuesday, Senator John McCain was caught on camera playing poker on his phone.
Here’s a photo:
McCain (R-Arizona) is one of the many U.S. politicians who want President Barack Obama to strike Syria in order to put an end to Bashar al Assad’s atrocities on his people. In an interview to Fox News on Sunday, McCain said, “The only way you're gonna solve this is help those people overthrow Bashar al-Assad.”
McCain also said referring to the chemical bombing in Syria, “You saw these pictures of these dead children. Come on. This is horrific. We can't stand by and watch this happen.”
But the poker episode suggests otherwise.
John McCain posted the following tweet after learning that he had been caught (with proof) that he wasn’t really interested in the Congress meeting:
