After apologizing for being tired (he was up watching the president win the election) he launched into the following diatribe about Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech:
“I’m so extremely grateful and glad that, taking time out of his very busy schedule, the recently reelected president of this country was able to make it here tonight. I know as an Englishman that it’s absolutely none of my business, but I’m so very grateful that it was you. … I love Clint Eastwood. This is no satirical comment on him or his politics or anything else. But I have to say, when I saw him talking to a chair in front of a room full of strangers, I thought, I’ve got to try that. That’s a challenge. I didn’t pull it off as well as him, but anyhow, I’ve got some way to go.”
