McCain jokes about baseball player’s failed drug test

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) needled the team that knocked the Arizona Diamondbacks out of the playoffs over Twitter on Monday, and took a swipe at their embattled All Star outfielder in the process.

“Ryan Braun juiced – can we do the playoffs over again? #dbacks,” McCain tweeted.
 
The Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Division series this year.

On Saturday, it was reported that Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun, who won the National League’s Most Valuable Player award, tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Braun denies the allegations but faces a 50 game suspension if he fails to get the test results overturned.

Last month, McCain congratulated Braun on winning the MVP award.

“Congrats to Ryan Braun, #NL MVP - @Brewers beat @Dbacks because of him,” McCain tweeted.
