If you missed the final night of the Republican National Convention, you probably missed Clint Eastwood talking to a chair; an empty chair that was supposed to contain President Obama, or something like that. Clint Eastwood said a lot of things as the RNC’s surprise speaker Thursday evening – and I’m sure there is a healthy debate out there about how much of it was satire, how much of it was actually on point, and how much of it was the delusional ravings of a old man.
But one thing that isn’t up for debate is the fact that Clint Eastwood did spend a large part of his speech talking to and/or at a chair.
And as you would expect, the internet has responded with a song.
It’s aptly titled “Clint Eastwood Talking to A Chair,” and comes courtesy YouTube user therockcookiebottom.
Making a song about the legendary actor/director’s speech took a little while, and that’s understandable. On the other hand, it didn’t take someone very long to create the Twitter account @InvisibleObama. That was up and tweeting before Eastwood’s speech was over. The account was briefly suspended earlier today, but quickly reinstated. It currently has over 50,000 followers.
