NOTHING SCANDALOUS ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!
America should stay out of the Syria and let them fight their own battles! (same with any other battle in these Countries... Iran/Iraq, etc... These should be between those involved ONLY. NO OTHER COUNTRY). Looks like this is what he is doing!!!!
Looks like Muslims have caused this chemical attack and hate to lose: so much for a peaceful religion! LOLOLOLOLOLOL

how can that man be a legend,playing poker while peoples lifes are at stake..disgusting carry on..but hold on the elite can do what they want.. the decision to go into Syria has already been made ages ago,whatever hidden agenda the American government has now...remember the so called weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that never existed and there exscuse to go in to Afghanistan after al quada who supposedly brought down the twin towers, then why do America back the free Syrian army who is mostly made up of al quada....... never about the people allways hidden agendas

It was a meeting to discuss whether the US should get involved in this Syrian mess not a meeting of the justice league to protect the galaxy. It cannot be that much of a problem otherwise he would have not done it or come out on twitter like that.

Why such a big scandal about this? the guy is sitting on a room for 3 hours... probably not even involved in the conversation and we all know that the meeting was just for show... the real decision was already made a long time ago.
Now in what poker is concerned.. that hand, was it a Q2 os and he limped UTG??!!??!?.. man i hope he was just fooling around with play money

Posted by Leomi: who knows senator nickname
I would suspect that his poker name on that site is: semper fi
It's the one on the top to the right if you look closely.
Senator McCain was a U.S. Marines fighter pilot in the Vietnam war.
The Marine's motto is semper fi,...so I'd go all in and bet that's his username....
By the way.....for a Republican....I find him tolerable. He's a moderate. I don't mind moderate right wingers...
In the Republican party, moderates are an endangered or extinct species,....but the only reason a lot of THEM tolerate him is because of his Marine background,...and that he spent 5 years in a Vietnam POW camp... He's a popular war hero...
If any of them badmouthed McCain too much....Americans would out them from their political career...

You might be right about that one amigo. American's in general do love there war hero's. I just love Senator McCain's quote about the only down said as far as he was concerned was that he lost the hand. You got to love a poker playing Senator He will make it legal to play in the US again
