Sen. McCain told Wallace he would be glad to discuss this situation with her. While he wouldn’t say he’d support her for secretary of state, Sen. McCain acknowledged, “I think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself […] but she’s not the problem.

Sen. McCain addressed the attacks by those on the left that he has used racial code words to go after Amb. Rice. He also gave his views on the future of the Republican Party.
