Thursday night at the Republican National Convention, Clint Eastwood amused delegates with his 11 minute conversation with a chair representing an imaginary president Barak Obama, but some members of the GOP are expressing outrage over doubts about the chair’s origins.
“I have it on good authority that that chair wasn’t made in America,” says Nathan Blunt, a lawyer with the Conservative Preservation Society (CPS). “That chair represents our president and our country even if it’s only in the disjointed, rambling, and scatological conversation between an angry old man and an imaginary person. We deserve to know where that chair comes from. “
Blunt and the CPS have demanded a full and accurate account of the chair’s origins. “If that chair was made in America, then why won’t Mr. Eastwood tell us where he got it? We demand to know the truth.”
