John McCain on the 2016 Campaign: 'I've Never Seen Anything Like This'

(NBC/"Late Night With Seth Meyers")

The GOP's 2008  presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain, says the 2016 campaign is like none other because candidates in both parties are tapping into the "frustration and anger" of voters.

"I've never seen anything like this," McCain said on NBC's "Late Night With Seth Meyers," USA Today reports.

"You see a frustration and anger which then rejects the establishment," he added. "[Sen. Ted] Cruz has tapped into it, [Vermont Sen. Bernie] Sanders has tapped into it, [Donald] Trump…"

"Anybody that says he can shoot somebody and still get elected, that's beyond any framework of politics that I've ever seen," the Arizona lawmaker said, USA Today reports.

McCain told a story about a voter who was talking about who'd he vote for.

"'I'm for Trump. He tells it like it is. He'll make America great again,'" McCain quoted him saying, adding that he then asked the voter who his second choice would be.

He responded "Sanders," McCain said.

"You know?" McCain observed. "It's both ends of the spectrum of dissatisfaction."

The Arizona senator said he'd support whoever is nominated by the Republican Party.

"The world's on fire," he said. "We have a group of radical Islamic terrorists" threatening the world "and I have to work with whoever" the president is to defeat them.

"It's the most interesting campaign," he added, urging the audience to "register to vote. It's going to matter."
