President Obama: "A Huge Clint Eastwood Fan"

Posted Sunday September 2, 2012 11:40 AM GMT

After surprise guest Clint Eastwood's 12-minute speech at the Republican National Convention, President Barack Obama remains a fan of the star.

At the RNC this past week, the "Dirty Harry" star heavily criticized the president to an empty chair, signifying an "invisible" and absentee president.

On Saturday (September 2), President Obama told USA Today that he thinks the 82-year-old icon is “is a great actor, and an even better director. I think the last few movies that he’s made have been terrific."

The intended target shrugged off the jabs, saying, "I am a huge Clint Eastwood fan. One thing about being president or running for president - if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession."
