The sitting president said during one of his campaign rallies that the veteran actor is an even better director.
President Obama had no comment about Clint Eastwood's 12-minute improvised speech at the Republican National Convention, but he admitted to be a fan of the veteran actor. "I am a huge Clint Eastwood fan," Obama told USA Today while campaigning in Iowa.
Eastwood recently 'interviewed' an empty chair that represents "invisible" Obama and an absentee president. Mitt Romney responded by laughing at Eastwood's act, thinking it was "funny". Meanwhile, Obama chose to joke about it by tweeting, "This seat's taken", and posting a photo of him from behind, sitting on the leather chair for president of United States.
Obama said during his campaign rally, "One thing about being president or running for president - if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession." He also called Eastwood a "great actor, and an even better director," adding, "I think the last few movies that he's made have been terrific."
