Academy Award-winning actor Clint Eastwood took to the podium last night at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL to throw his support behind recently nominated candidate Mitt Romney.
During the speech, Eastwood, who served briefly as the mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, had an awkward "conversation" with an invisible President Barack Obama in an empty chair.
Celebrities from the world of entertainment took to Twitter to respond to the somewhat bizarre presentation. Even President Obama had something to say, tweeting: "This seat's taken," along with a photo (see above) of the back of his chair with him sitting in it. Check out more celebrity tweets below!
