President Obama Not Fazed By Clint Eastwood Speech
Clint Eastwood Mocks President Obama
When Clint Eastwood was revealed as the "surprise guest" that would speak at Thursday night's Republican National Convention, it electrified the delegates and the party. When it came time for him to walk out on stage in front of millions tuning in, the crowd was electric and ready to hear him speak, hanging at his every word. Then when he spoke, it became as what some have described as bizarre, most notably mocking President Obama in an invisible chair.
Clint is a Hollywood Legend who endorsed Mitt Romney months ago. Many say that Mitt was upstaged by the "invisible chair" that Clint "debated" with for almost 11 minutes. If you didn't see it, you can watch the video below for yourself. The video sparked an @Invisible Obama handle on Twitter and people began to post Instagram photos of themselves "Eastwooding".
President Obama Gives His Opinion
The night that Clint gave his speech the White House issued their response by tweeting the below photo:
The picture says it all. The picture depicts Obama in the Presidential Chair with the chair saying "The President", along with the line "This seat is taken." Of the incident as a whole, Barack recently told USA Today in an interview after being asked whether he was offended, "if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession." He also gave praise to Eastwood telling USA he was a huge fan of the actor. President Obama certainly has lots more of criticism coming his way!
