Calling the current political climate “very disappointing,” Eastwood says, “I just wish — the election's over, we should be moving ahead. And the leaders aren't stepping up."
Instead, the former Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., mayor contended, “It's almost like they don't give a damn. And so if they don't give a damn, why did they expect anybody else to?"
Eastwood also addressed his chair-tastic chat at the convention. "Seemed odd at the time. But, you know, I'm an odd person," he said with a laugh.
"One thing about getting into the senior status of life, like I am, you don't really care," he added. "You just say what you say and then you get away with it."
