Rocker Ted Nugent wasn’t all that impressed by President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech on Monday.

He sarcastically yawned when asked by Newsmax for his reaction in the Capitol following the address.

“I’m so glad somebody is going to bring about world peace and save the children,” he said.

Nugent was a guest of Texas Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman, who has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals.

Nugent further added that he wasn’t impressed by Obama’s approach to climate change.

Obama said that if Congress failed to pass legislation to address the issue, he would direct his cabinet “to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.”

Said Nugent: “Thank God he brought up global warming. I was starting to get concerned.”
