Rob Reiner

Clint's RNC Speech Was

'Embarrassing'

EXCLUSIVE

0909_reiner_videoRob Reiner has always had a way with words and he dropped a critical one when talking about Clint Eastwood's speech at the Republican National Convention last week ... "embarrassing."

By now everyone has seen the "speech" ... with the "Unforgiven" star talking to an empty chair meant to symbolize President Barack Obama. 

Reiner, who was at the DNC, said he felt the Dems' convention was better (shocker). And last night outside Toscana in Brentwood, he told our photog he was embarrassed by Clint's baffling speech, adding, "I am a big fan of Clint's but not doing this."

It's very sad that Reiner has such distain for older people......Eastwood has done more as an actor and producer than Reiner will ever do,....and Reiner made in in show business because of his father,...so he's the last one who should be criticizing a respected Academy Award winner like Clint Eastwood.

Wow TMZ! Check the comments. Looks like your readership has spoken! Stop spreading your putrid politics. The world is pissed at liberals for screwing up everything. You live in a bubble full of yes people with lots of money. I am barely able to pay my mortgage. TMZ, you just don't get it.

And if Clint Eastwood had been at the DNC Rob would be tripping over himself complimenting Mr. Eastwood. Who cares what Rob Reiner thinks???

Way to get an unbiased opinion. How about asking Louis Farrakhan his thoughts on a KKK meeting? Or Rosie O'Donnel on her thoughts of Weight Watchers?

Different Rules Apply    

Right on Clint Eastwood!! Barack Obama is our employee and he has not done his job. The country is in the toilet. Mr. Obama has had almost four years to implement "the change" and we are in more debt and in more trouble than ever. Time for a real "change". We need to fire our employee!
