The Clint Eastwood speech suffered a backlash on the Social Media Networks this week after his speech in which he spoke to an empty chair. The seat was supposed to have the current President, Barrack Obama in it, however he was not there and 82 year old Eastwood wanted to make this point.
He made the speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, Florida last week. He said he wanted to make his point:
“I had three points I wanted to make,”
“That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left; that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office; and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job.
“But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.”
He sure did say it, and although he was criticized a lot online, he was happy that he had made his point.
Some comments and feedback on this story from around the web have been rather humorous, with some saying that Clint Eastwood argued with an empty chair and lost, and some others stating that the chair should win an Oscar award.
