"‘Surprise’ Clint Eastwood Speech Features Bizarre Conversation With Empty Chair"

In what was a poorly kept “surprise” appearance, actor/director Clint Eastwood gave a highly bizarre speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Thursday. Eastwood blamed President Obama for getting the U.S. into a war in Afghanistan without talking to Russia first (though George W. Bush began that war seven years before Obama took office), repeated told an empty chair he pretended was Obama to “shut up,” and said we shouldn’t have attorneys as president (though Mitt Romney has a law degree from Harvard).
