Obama Says He’s Still A ‘Huge Clint Eastwood Fan’


No hard feelings. Even after Clint Eastwood pretended to have a conversation with him via an empty chair at last week’s Republican National Convention, President Barack Obama still says he’s a “huge” fan of the actor and director’s work.

Obama told USA Today that he thinks Eastwood is “a great actor, and an even better director,” adding that “I think the last few movies that he’s made have been terrific.”

The newspaper also asked the president if the skit offended him, to which he replied, “One thing about being president or running for president — if you’re easily offended, you should probably choose another profession.”
