Everyone is #Eastwooding

The trend of the day, following last night's odd speech by Clint Eastwood at the Republican National Convention (RNC) is #Eastwooding. During Clint Eastwood's speech, he compared President Barack Obama to an empty chair (because he's not there) and went as far as to have an empty chair alongside the podium as he spoke -- on television -- where people could actually see this going down. With the internet and Twitter being nothing more than a meme factory, #Eastwooding took off today with thousands of people snapping photos of themselves or others talking to, alongside, pointing at or getting angry with empty chairs. It's a hell of a way to end the week. Let's get #eastwooding and see some of the photos.

Yep, Eastwood actually, at times, spoke to an empty chair

Clint Eastwood's speech at the RNC is best compared to this screengrab from an old episode of The Simpsons... "Old man yells at chair"
