Clint Eastwood explains RNC speech on ‘Ellen Show’

“Clint Eastwood popped in on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday to explain his headline-grabbing speech at the RNC, and to accuse the Republicans of “spending like drunken sailors.”

Discussing his libertarian beliefs — socially liberal, fiscally conservative — with DeGeneres, Eastwood offered, “Libertarian values: That’s where Republicans used to be when they were saving money and everything.”

Shortly later in the interview, Eastwood reasserted his contention, this time including the Democrats in the mix of money-wasters.
In the last few years, both sides have just spent like drunken sailors,” Eastwood told DeGeneres.

As for his speech at the RNC — which raised eyebrows on a bipartisan level when Eastwood harangued at length an empty chair as if Obama was seated in it — the 82-year-old actor/director cracked, “”It was an interesting reaction, actually; the Democrats who were watching thought I was going senile, and the Republicans knew I was.”

Eastwood added, “But I was actually just trying to enjoy myself.””

Gotta love his smile…..♥
