Clint Eastwood Blames Empty Chair for Poor Movie Opening

Hollywood - Famed Trumpist director, Clint Eastwood, whose latest film in a string of disappointing efforts, "Richard Jewell", has grossed less than 10 million dollars in three weeks of release, said he would have discussions with his director's chair, which he called "Obama" at the 2012 Republican National Convention, about the movie's poor results.

"I am thinking at this point that Obama (the chair), which I have used as my director's chair since 2012, may have been listening in on my conversations and been secretly leaking the details of my film to the fake media and lying critics. That is why they and the liberals have been able to sink my movie. I've called Bill Barr, and he agrees with me that there is some kind of spying going on here. I'm calling for an investigation by the Justice Department, and I demand that the chair testify under oath."

The film seeks to rectify the character assassination of Jewell in the Atlanta Olympic Park bombing, but instead apparently does the same disservice to Kathy Scruggs, a journalist for the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, who is now deceased and unable to defend herself.

The chair was unavailable for comment.
