Clint Eastwood caused a sensation with his surprise appearance at the Republican National Convention Thursday night. But his interesting, yet strange speech didn’t seem to make everyone’s day.
The Oscar winner and highly respected actor/director took the stage in Tampa and began talking to an empty chair, pretending that an invisible Barack Obama was sitting there as he unloaded his frustrations about the president’s policies and track record. (The chair has now even spurred its own Twitter feed.) The speech got responses from Snoop Dogg, Bill Mayer, Seth Meyers, Roseanne and many more.
Celebs quickly sounded off on the 82-year-old’s ad-libbing spree, beginning with none other than the target of Eastwood’s piercing barbs: President Obama himself.
O.K. Mr. President! Hilarious.
He wasn’t the only one to weigh in on Eastwood’s tirade.
Adam Levine: “Clint Eastwood has gone f–kin nutterbutters yo.”
Snoop Dogg: “I love eastwood. But on some real s–t he need 2 sit his old ass down! That s–t was funny talking 2 a chair! He need to b n a wheelchair!”
Roger Ebert: “Clint, my hero, is coming across as sad and pathetic. He didn’t need to do this to himself. It’s unworthy of him.”
Zachary Quinto: “Is clint eastwood meant to instill confidence in republicans?! I am legitimately scared of his talking to imaginary Obama.”
Simon Pegg: “Maybe Clint is a sleeper agent for the Democrats sent in under deep cover to make the Republicans look stupid. No wait, that’s Romney.”
Bill Maher: “Wow. Who knew Clint Eastwood was such a down the line rightwing a–hole?”
Zach Braff: “Still can’t tell if Clint was hallucinating or President is really invisible now.”
Seth Myers: “When Clint woke up this morning he saw that Obama was gone from the chair…Or was he still there!?!?!”
Roseanne Barr: “Clint eastwood is CRAY.”
Mia Farrow: “What WAS that thing Clint Eastwood just did? How could they let it happen?”
Piers Morgan: ” Still reeling from that #Clint performance – sooooooooo weird.”
Patton Oswalt: “I love you, Clint. I always will. But you changed the theme of the RNC from “WE BUILT THIS” to “I CAN’T WATCH THIS”.
Tom Brokaw: “Clint Eastwood became huge star as a man of few words As a surprise guest on the Tampa stage he had too many words (I say as a friend).”
