Everyone has been having a good laugh at Clint Eastwood’s ‘speech’ at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, in which he spent primetime television coverage talking to a chair supposedly representative of an ‘absent’ President Obama. However, a recent quote in an interview suggests that perhaps rather than being senile and deserving of our pity, laughter, and second-hand embarrassment, Eastwood could have possibly been attempting to make the RNC look foolish on purpose and might be deserving of our praise and thanks.
From The Washington Post:
“If somebody’s dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they’re gonna have to take what they get.”
When asked if he would pull the whole talking to a chair stunt again, Eastwood said:
“I don’t know. I never look backwards. It’s done and it’s done. I probably would.”
Well, we all know Eastwood is a great, Oscar-Winning actor. Wouldn’t it be grand if he just played the ultimate role of a lifetime and trolled the entire RNC? We sure can hope!
