Clint Eastwood Delivers Weirdest, Most Awkward Political Speech Ever

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitikBarack Obama

Is this a trailer for the new Clint Eastwood film?

A light-hearted buddy cop movies where a surly, rambling old man and his invisible friend with a penchant for obscenities overcome the odds to team up and tickle America's funny bone?

No. It very assuredly is not.

What looks like a botched stand-up routine mauled by a tiger and ran-over by a bus was actually Clint's critically important primetime speech at last night's Republican National Convention!

Ch-ch-check out the beloved actor standing in front of millions (above), speaking in half-sentences and incoherently chastising an empty chair as if it were President Obama!

It's completely effing cray!!

As an SNL sketch satirizing the political spectrum, his routine could've been brilliant!

In the real world, however, we were all left scratching our heads.

For his finale, the actor led the audience in a chant of his famous tagline: "go ahead, make my day!"

You sure made ours, Clint. You sure made ours.

    Yes, the speech was awkward. At the same time, Clint is so well loved by both sides of the aisle that I don't think it matters. What everyone was waiting for was Romney and he delivered a great speech. As an Independent I liked what he said and will be waiting to hear what Obama says in his speech. This election is too important to only concentrate on the speakers who come before the main "Guy". Who is the best man for President is what should concern us not what Clint Eastwood or Joe Biden has to say.

    What's even more awkward is having a president that hasn't done anything except being a celebrity. One of whom you cover a lot, especially his decorating style for the white house and his various stints on late night talk shows. Yet nothing about him doing any of the things he promised in his campaign speech in 2008. This was a good speech and it's refreshing to see one of the most influential people in Hollywood speaking up and supporting a non democrat.

    I think weirdest and most awkward speech would be the one you gave after getting hit in the face. Lots of crying by a grown man over a scratch = weird, awkward, and embarrassing

    It was so strange. I don't really know what he was trying to do. Bizarre.



  6. 6

    This was truly embarrassing. Who are his handlers? His wife better get off of one of those band members she is supporting and tend to Clint.

    I'm sure if that would have been Clooney up there, doing the same shtick, everyone (well Hollywood and Democrats) would have been fine with it. It was a fun, lighthearted moment and not meant to be the highlight primetime speech. That went to Romney, who did a great job!

    roast of Mitt Romney was terrible.

    Clint Eastwood earned plenty of bad reviews for his latest performance

    boooooo Hollywood press, if it is Democratic movie celeb who bashes Pres Bush you all cheered. Bravo Clint for speaking the truth. I know you are not scared of those no-non sense celebrity, at least one stand up

    Mario, you're too biased and too stupid to cover politics. You focus on all the wrong things all the time. You support Obama because he had a sudden epiphany about gay marriage. Never mind the fact that he stated firmly and without hesitation in 2008 that marriage is an institution for heterosexual couples. You'll buy into his shit because you delude yourself into believing that Obama will help homos. Well, this is an election year, and if he's going to act, now is the time. What legislation has he introduced to help you? NONE. He'll give you lots of words. And that's all he'll give you, you fucking idiot. I am a registered independent. I voted for Obama in 2008. I won't make that same mistake in 2012. He's delivered on none of his promises, and given us more debt in his one term than all other presidents combined. So I don't care if Clint Eastwood's speech wasn't perfect. At least he's not a super-rich one-percenter pretending to care for the poor like so many Hollywood twats do; yeah, those moronic celebrity Obama supporters who have lost touch with how the rest of us live, just like Obama and his racist wife.

    Who does this shaky old movie star think he is, making fun of the Prez of the US?
    He is confusing his acting roles w/his real position in life. He acts - period -
    & at this point may need a companion at all times.

    Re: Andy – Moron! The Republicans made it impossible to do much of anything. Please read a book. Please learn to think.



  14. 14

    Perez knowing you are a supporter of the WORST President EVER, is all the more reason to vote for someone else. YOU’RE AN EFFING IDIOT PEREZ. The tides will turn on you soon, and your crappy blog.



  15. 15

    Can you please stop posting about politics? I'm sick of seeing all of the totally ignorant comments that are always posted.



  16. 16

    Mr Eastwood has sufferd from a speech impediment all of his life. I applaud him for standing in front of millions of people,and speaking. When someone/something does not seem right it usually isn't.



  18. 18

    No he didn't Perez you camel-toed, no talent, useless piece of filth. You're just an irrational, rabid liberal. Putz.

    What the hell was that about? Clint your time is up now, you may exit stage left. Your brain is fucked.

    Clint Eastwood is a scumbag, this speech was stupid and Obamas response was spot on.



  24. 24

    If you were bright enough to understand the meaning of 'empty chair' or 'empty suit' (especially in the context of this speech) you'd know this speech is awkward. Heck, even Rachel Maddow on MSNBC understood the reference. Romney aside, no wonder you dim bulbs are willing to vote for Obama for a second term.

    That was a scene right out of Christopher Guest's latest comedy, right?
    ( Pls say yes pls say yes!!) What's up w/ the hair and the ill-fitting sport coat?? In any surreal event, if Maxhead Romney gets in - we're *ucked.

    Clint was AWESOME! Incredible delivery and timing. It is time for Obama to wake up and realize that you cannot spend your way out of debt. It doesn't work at home and it won't work with the government. It is basic Econ 101.

    Your underage daughter(Stewie) was slumming around with a 30 yrd old yes she is 18 now and your family has a reality show on a network most famous for the biggest porn con artist family in the US.
    You are not bright, you are a pretty blond that has gotten old so you try to have ideals but you have no actual knowledge. You stupid a$$ GM commercial during the superbowl was either an act of fiction or you really are a bubble head. I guess the writers assumed everyone watching the superbowl was an idiot. Clint I am a fan of you (of course the reality show makes you a joke) and the RNC but you just need to be a prop for the RNC and not a mouthpiece….yes I am talking to the empty chair.
