Report: Sen. John McCain plays poker during Syria hearings
Sometimes, you just need a break. But is that moment during hearings that could end with the United States launching cruise missiles at Syria?
According to The Washington Post, Sen. John McCain was photographed playing poker on his cell phone during the hearings.
Though McCain's face is not visible in the photo, Washington Post Photographer Melina Mara, who took the photo, claimed it was McCain.
The good news? McCain later owned up to taking a small break during the hearing. The bad? Let's just say that river card didn't give him the full house he was waiting on.
