Cindy McCain on Sunday said her late husband, Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain, would be “disappointed” with today’s politics.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” on the first anniversary of the senator’s death, McCain also said she misses her husband’s “voice of reason.”

“I think he'd be very disappointed, in fact I know he'd be,” she said of her husband’s likely reaction to the political climate. “He'd be saddened by the digression that these conversations and debates have taken, and also saddened that we're so disoriented in the world.”

“We had time to talk before he died and he was very frustrated with what was going on then,” she added. “I think now he'd be even more frustrated." 

Asked what she missed about her husband, McCain said, “"There's so many things I miss about him.”

“I think most of all, was his voice of reason...particularly, his voice of reason, right now,” she said.

McCain said the family, in honor of the first anniversary of his death, is asking that Americans perform "acts of civility" and share it on social media.

"We've all witnessed some troubling times with regards to genuine civility towards each other and towards mankind, and our family together, all of us, felt this was a very important message that if we can convey anything that John McCain stood for on this one year anniversary it would be acts of civility,” she said.
