U.S. Rep. Duncan Hunter ripped President Obama following his final State of the Union address Tuesday night, saying he’s “naive and almost childish” on foreign policy and has contributed to “complete and utter chaos in the world.”

“He doesn’t understand the world. He simply doesn’t understand the world even after being president for seven years,” the California Republican told The Blaze immediately following Mr. Obama’s address. “He doesn’t get the Middle East, he doesn’t get that not everybody thinks like Americans.

“He’s naive and almost childish in his world views. And we’ve known this for ages, thank God this is the last one,” Mr. Hunter, 39, continued. “He lives in a house of mirrors where reality does not intrude in anyway whatsoever in his world. There is no reality in Obama’s world. None.”

He said he expected to learn very little from Mr. Obama’s address and left the Capitol Building Tuesday night “as quickly as possible,” The Blaze reported. 

“I don’t care what he said. This is the worst president of my generation,” Mr. Hunter said. “It didn’t matter in any way whatsoever. It was a waste of my time to be there, but I had to — it was my job.

“The world’s falling apart around our ears. The working class in this country is no better off then they were seven years ago, Wall Street is making a heyday,” he said. “That’s what the president brought us — complete and utter chaos in the world, a stagnant economy for anybody making less than $200,000 here in the U.S., more billionaires and millionaires than we’ve ever seen ever. That’s what we have. We have the biggest wage gap ever between the rich and the poor. We have Vladimir Putin and Syria and the Ukraine and Georgia.”
