Clint Eastwood

Reality Show Did NOT

Set Up Obama Schtick

Clint Eastwood
was NOT put up to his painful Barack Obama schtick last night by the producers of his family's reality show -- in fact, sources close to the legend tell TMZ, Clint "acts that way all the time at home."

There's been a lot of speculation -- Clint's bit was so awful ... there's no way it wasn't a setup for reality TV ... but we're told it really wasn't. The whole thing was Clint's idea, and even his family had no clue what he planned to do on stage.

According to sources, Clint's family's reality show "Mrs. Eastwood & Company" has not officially been picked up for a 2nd season and they're not currently in production -- so there's no way producers could have had a hand in last night's trainwreck.  

We’re told Clint's family believes his speech was widely misunderstood -- Clint just has a dry sense of humor that people don't understand.

Sure.

TRAINWRECK! You are obviously a Liberal idiot Obama Democratic supporter, or, have no idea about this man and who he is. He could not have been more true on his skit than all the crappy lame and offensive crap put out by stars for Obama. You people forget, Obama had records on his self sealed from public viewing. Also, I have no respect for some one apoligizing for the US when we did nothing wrong. I'm ready for the CHANGE! OBAMA GONE IN NOVEMBER 2012!

Clint talking to a chair was almost as cringe worthy as Romney trying to connect with the American people. Couple of clowns.

Really TMZ is this all ya got? That moron Biden on a daily basis says and does the dumbest things I'm surprised he can dress himself and you never say anything. You might as well face if Clint was great and Obama is as good as gone. Can't wait until November go Romney!!!!!!!!!!!

All of these republicans are crazy and liars, please get out and vote. People complain about the state of the country but when a Democrats get in and clean up the mess these fools vote the republicans back in office.

Don't you get it the republicans are for the rich!

So your 82 year old grandmother wants to tell a story at Thanksgiving dinner, would you disrespect her for taking a little longer than you would.Clint is cool and i can't believe you disrepected him. Took some time but he made valid points. Should have left it alone other than jumping on the bandwagon with the likes of all the other leftists who had nothing nice to say.

Clint is a comedic genius. He is always a dry humored, slow-talking cowoby who speaks the truth. Hollywood is only up in arms, because he doesn't tow the line for the left. If he was speaking for Obama, everyone would say how brilliant he was. I would take Clint's 82-year old brain & humor over the arrogance & ignorance of Obama any day of the week.

It's amazing, because when all the lefties assumed Clint was on their team during the Superbowl ad, they all touted his genius. Now, he's suddently senile? That man is more coherent at 82 years old than our fraud of a president

And what kind of a president responds on twitter to an actor/director? Seriously? This is our president? His behavior, experience, knowledge and actions have never been presidential. And this was the cherry on top. Keep up the narcisissm Obama. We'll see you in November!
