GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) — These days, wherever you see Clint Eastwood, an empty chair is sure to follow. Even if you're on a hike.

A life-sized cutout of a cowboy Eastwood has stood on a trail overlooking a Southern California freeway for months, but on Tuesday a pair of chairs were next to him, one also a cardboard cutout, the other an actual wooden chair.

But according to the media, Clint was puzzling, doddering, and senile and nobody knew what he was talking about. They are STILL trying to spin this as hard as they can, but they’ve spun their wheels so fast, they are dug so deep in that hole, they might never get out again.

The great thing about this empty chair is that empty chairs show up all the time, everywhere...offices, theatres, restaurants and on and on and NOW each and every time someone sees an empty chair anywhere, any time, it is a little reminder. How nifty is that?

Obama’s the one that never knows what he’s talking about.

What I luv about the Empty Chair meme is that Liberals are trying to hijack it. Hahahah which is awesome. I guess they never read or watched Br'er Rabbit. Every time they try to hijack it more people are exposed to the fact Clint Eastwood called Obama an Empty suit/Empty chair

"Don't throw me in the briar patch Mr. Fox, oh no don't you do it!"

I love it!

Good analogy. lol I love the empty chair meme. Chair Force One was a title for an article on breitbart. Let’s count the ways, in which it can used, to mock the arrogant one. Social psychopaths hate to be laughed at...thanks Clint.

He was probably telling the truth. He was pointing right at Helen Thomas when he said that, and she may have been on the 'short list'...

Then, for some reason, he blurted out "Monica Lewinsky"...

Good idea!

I called Clint’s offices today, to see if there was an email address where millions of grateful Americans could send their thanks, great appreciation and support for what he did. The answer: NO.

So, I just asked the gentlemen to please let Clint know there are millions of Americans very grateful and appreciative of what he did .. and that it went viral.

I’ve got to get a phone or a camera that I can figure out how to use, so that I can post pictures online. I’ll check out everyone else’s at the Texas Shoot I’m attending in October.

My next week's sign on the chair will say.

H N O pe.

With an Obama sticker upside down as the "O".

Our conservative friends on the road are getting a kick out of this, I'm loving the head exploding, wheel clutching, windshield spitting anger from the libs as they drive by......

:-)
