The tweet came not long after actor, director and former GOP politician Clint Eastwood made a rambling speech that featured him talking to an empty chair.
“So I’ve got Mr. Obama sitting here … Mr. President, how do you handle promises you’ve made?” he asked the chair. It gave no response.
The speech almost immediately spawned an @InvisibleChair Twitter account, which attracted more than 30,000 followers in just a few hours.
