Photographed playing smartphone poker during Syria hearing, McCain says 'I get a little bored'
"As much as I like to always listen in rapt attention constantly with the remarks of my colleagues over a a three-and-a-half-hour period, occasionally I get a little bored, and so I resorted" to poker, McCain said drily. "But the worst thing about it is, I lost thousands of dollars."
The senator later clarified that he was only playing for fake money.
McCain also tweeted about the photo shortly after it went up: "Scandal! Caught playing iPhone game at 3+ hour Senate hearing — worst of all I lost!"
