Rachel Maddow at a Loss for Words After Clint’s RNC Speech

As host of her very own MSNBC program, the loquacious Rachel Maddow pretty much always has something to say about the day’s issues. But occasionally, even Maddow gets tongue-tied. Like, for example, when she tried to explain actor Clint Eastwood’s dialogue with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention.

“I don’t—I don’t—I don’t know what was going on there,” she said. “Clint Eastwood is 82 years old and I think that—I don’t know if that’s what was going on there.” Maddow then tried to go through what the speech was all about, but seemed to be having a difficult time piecing together Eastwood’s rambling and oft-times bizarre speech.

She finally concluded, “That was the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen at a political convention in my entire life, and it will be the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen if I live to be 100.”
