Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) reflected on his failed presidential campaign during an appearance on Monday’s “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on CBS.

“After I lost, I slept like a baby,” McCain said. “Sleep two hours, wake up and cry. Sleep two hours, wake up and cry.”

Host Stephen Colbert asked the five-term senator if he ever thinks about how he would solve the world’s problems.

“You really have to put those things behind you,” McCain said. “It’s a needless exercise.”
