The chair Clint Eastwood used as a prop during his comic Obama speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention now serves as a source of inspiration for Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, Inquisitr reports Jan. 24.
Reince also views the chair a trophy from the epic performance Eastwood gave when he had it sitting empty next to him in Florida.
The report said Reince keeps Eastwood's empty chair in his office because “gets the joke,” and said that it’s “the first thing he points out” when discussing “how his party must dramatically rethink its strategy and message in hopes of recovering from the presidential drubbing of 2012.”
Eastwood made a powerful impression with his novel performance while endorsing Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. He got reactions on both side of the political spectrum. President Obama's administration responded by tweeting out a photo of him sitting in the President's chair that read, "this seat's taken."
Reince Priebus certainly has a historic item sitting in his office. It's a conversation piece all on its own.
