Clint Eastwood was the surprise guest at last night’s Republican National Convention, and although the ‘talk’ of the night should’ve focused more on Mitt Romney and his plans for world domination, more people focused on Eastwood’s interesting speech that included an invisible Obama.
Via Prune Juice Media:
For over 10 minutes, the actor rambled and spoke off-message to an empty chair that represented President Obama. Several bad jokes underscored his points about the president’s shortcomings. Somehow in that mess he managed to praise Romney and Ryan. For what, I don’t know….
There was so much WRONG with the speech that it looks like the only people who halfway enjoyed it were in the convention audience.
There is hope in the new Twitter hashtag #Eastwooding that came from the spoken word disaster. If you see people randomly talking to empty chairs then you know they are channeling their inner-Clint. Feel free to pass them their meds while you’re at it.
Not to be outdone, President Obama tweeted the following photo with the caption This Seat’s Taken.
Eastwood should probably leave the jokes to his more comedic peers. Check out the speech if you missed it and post your thoughts.
