Kotaku - Look, yes, sometimes you've just gotta play VIP Poker during a three-hour Senate meeting about whether or not America should attack a foreign country. War talks are just so boring, you know?
I saw this and it's hilarious and so sad at the same time. He's such an advocate of bombing Syria, yet when it comes down to Congress discussing the reasons wether we should or shouldn't he's playing poker on his phone. He even said that he was bored. This is so frickin ridiculous I can't stand it. He wants to bomb bomb bomb!, but when people talk about reasons why we shouldn't he drifts off and plays poker. I'm not talking sides on wether we should or shouldn't but when we elect Congressmen to make decisions for us they should at least pay attention wether or not they agree or not. This could be one of the most pivotal decisions for our country and the whole world and he actually complained on CNN how he lost thousands of fake dollars playing poker on his phone while not doing his job. Nice McCain, I'm glad Palin screwed you over. F**king D***hebag!
But it was three hours long. I would have pulled out my Vita and did the same thing. Would have connected to the Congress Wifi, popped in Killzone Mercenaries, sent Palin a game invite and would have got it in. DIE ISA SCUM!
I guess trying to win fake money on a phone, is more important then possibly sending troops to their deaths.
No boots on the ground...
Not to mention the thousands of civilian deaths.
@Eamon Yeah right, they say that now...
they clearly said no soldiers on the ground, like a million times cmon man!
@torchic Appearing before the Senate's foreign relations committee, Mr Kerry was pressed for an assurance that the US would not engage in a ground war in Syria. He replied that while there was no desire "whatsoever" that option had to be reserved in the event that chemical weapons fell into the hands of Islamist extremists. "I don't want to take off the table an option that might or might not be available to a president of the United States to secure our country," he said. Lesson is: Don't believe everything you hear.
They should show this picture to all the troops that get shipped out. So they know what they are fighting for.
@saul I am admittedly naïve, however Kerry made it abundantly clear (for me anyway) that soldiers would not be deployed on the ground. I don't remember him saying what you quoted but I'll take your word for it. I just remember him pointing out the mistakes of Iraq using that to ensure no troops. I'm not American, maybe that's why I feel more inclined to believe Kerry as I don't know him too well. I'm pretty sure Americans would revolt if America engaged in another soldier war.
He doesn't want to bomb people, calm down there. Seriously, doesn't he just want to bomb plane run ways so they cant take off?
I think he and Sen. Graham were in favor of arming the rebels.
Yeah. If they bomb the airplane runways and anti air systems, Israel's air force has complete access to Palestine, Syria, and Iran with their air force. Opens up the map for them.
Maybe his next life on candy crush came up and all this talk about bombing reminded him about Level 33.
He's getting paid to pay attention. These scumbags love to kill at will without worrying about any one else's family. The rebels are the CIA, straight racketeering has been going on in the mideast.
I'm curious, what was the name of the game he was playing! Command and Conquor?
McCain enjoying a nice casual game not bad looks like Apple still has a strong a strong presence ;)
LOL the tweet is priceless.
So its good to talk about a clown that supports al-qaida in Syria? lol John McCain a terrorist playing mobile Games...
I wonder how US politicians/public would have felt about Bin Laden sitting playing Nintendo Dogs while plotting terrorist attacks! And meanwhile in other news this week, a town in Ireland Co Clare had to paint over a mural of Che Guevara because some American tourists were offended by it! http://www.independent.ie/i...
LOL! Mindless muricans! (not all but most of them) No wonder why most ppl hate them...
if you only knew you'd understand that action isn't taken without reason
Show me an american that did advance the USA !!! America was built using the efforts of foreigners. The funniest thing is that the iphone HE IS PLAYING WITH was conceived by the defunct Steve Jobs whoose origin is is syrian ( or in fact syrian, why deny that), so thanks to a syrian or many other foreigners, he is enjoying his (criminal) life. Continue bombing (after internally destroying) the entire world and then you will have shortage of... Life itself.
@PLASTICA-MAN Well said man! respect!!!
This is why America will fall. If you can't take your job serious gtfo and let some one with heart and drive do it. Look at me being an a$$hole while real $hit is going on around me. I don't like dems or republicans. I have no loyalty to any political party. I could only imagine my 1sg reaction if I was playing on my phone during a PSG brief.
if your 1st SGT is briefing you then you bet your ass that you need to know everything he's saying... it's called a brief for a reason. He probably sit in on meeting three or four times as long if not longer. Now compound that with 49 other idiots in the senant talking about crap they don't even know and you can imagine that one would drift... he could have fallen asleep and then we would all be talking about how old he is
Lmao, just racked out!
I'm surprised that the old fossil can even turn on an iPhone, let alone play a game on one.
Bet it was cabelas
He is gambling with lives of people(yes pun intended).
I'm not condoning what he did. Its a hearing on the Syrian crisis, the Senate nor congress have the power to wage war on anyone. That power belongs to the commander in chief, president Obama. If there's any military action it will be Obama's decision.
Games cause evil...
Hey at least he's playing some form of video games..Whereas Hilary Clinton want's to get rid of every trace of a video game...No GTA, no PS4, no X1, No PC games, no Phone games, no arcades, nothing.
This should be all over the public news so our people can see what kind of people they elect to run this country >=[
@ plastica-man. He's an American of Syrian decent. As most Americans, we're all descendents of other nationalities. We're Americans first. So thanks to an American we have the iPhone.
"John McCain Caught Playing iPhone Game During Syria Senate Hearing" Kick this @$$-HOLE out of office, immediately.
