Clint Eastwood On RNC Speech: 'An Oddball Thing,' 'If Someone's Dumb Enough To Ask Me...'

But he didn't stop there. In an appearance on "Ellen" (where he put his feet on Ellen's table), the actor said he doesn't really care what people thought of the event. "The Democrats who were watching thought I was going senile, and the Republicans knew I was." He summed up the event thusly: "I was just trying to have some fun." Source
