President Barack Obama addressed 2014 West Point graduates on Wednesday — and he received a reception that CNN international anchor correspondent Jim Clancy described as “pretty icy.”

Watch the video via Reuters:

Obama’s approval rating among those serving in the military is only 32 percent. The ongoing VA scandal likely won’t result in that number going up.

Clancy argued Obama’s speech was “not really a great speech to give at the U.S. Military Academy.” He called it a “philosophical speech,” not a “commander-in-chief speaking to his troops.”

“And you heard the reception. I mean, it was pretty icy.”
