A Washington Post reporter caught Senator John McCain (R-AZ) “passing the time by playing poker on his iPhone during the hearing.”

Later Tuesday, McCain joked about the "bust" on Twitter:

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

Haha. It's not like bombing a foreign nation is a serious big deal or anything.

Can you help us out?
