Clint Eastwood made the day of several Republican National Convention-goers Thursday night, when the screen star and filmmaker – without benefit of a Teleprompter – took to the stage and held an imaginary conversation with an empty chair meant to represent President Barack Obama.
Eastwood, 82, tweaked the unseen Obama for campaign promises unfulfilled, such as the 2008 pledge to close Gitmo.
“So, Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you made I’m not going to shut up, it’s my turn,” said the Oscar winner. “What do you want me to tell Romney? I can’t tell him to do that. He can’t do that to himself. You’re getting as bad as Biden!”
