Clint Eastwood: “If Someone is Dumb Enough to Invite Me to Speak at a Convention, They Get What They Get”
Clint Eastwood is old and ornery, and he knows it. So he’s not taking responsibility for the one man show he put on at the GOP convention. He is, instead, blaming his hosts, saying they knew what they were getting when they invited him to speak. How’s that for gratitude?
Clint Eastwood did an interview with the TV show “Extra” and discussed why he chose to talk to an empty chair during his speech at the Republican convention. One would think he’d be just a wee bit apologetic, but instead he insulted the RNC for choosing him to speak at their convention. Eastwood said, “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.”
Yeah, that’s fine and all, but no one would’ve expected Eastwood to go on blathering about an invisible Obama in a chair. The Republicans were stupid for not vetting Eastwood’s speech, but I doubt anyone thought that he would just go off the rails in such a deranged way.
When asked if he’d do the moronic talking-to-a-chair act again, Eastwood says, “I don’t know. I never look backwards. It’s done and it’s done. I probably would.” Why in the world would he ever do that again? It made the RNC look foolish and him look like an old crank who is ready to be put out to pasture.
And even though President Obama was gracious when asked about Eastwood’s speech, it is obvious that Eastwood can’t muster the same grace when speaking about Obama. Eastwood said he would like to see fewer teleprompters and fundraisers from President Obama, but doesn’t utter a word about the billionaires who are raising money for Romney. It may be time for Eastwood to get out of showbiz and fully settle into old age. He isn’t the star he once was.
