The famed actor has done this before, remember that ‘Empty Chair’ speech at the RNC in 2012? We sure do.

What was it that the 86-year old Hollywood legend had to say this time?
Eastwood was speaking at the Cannes Film Festival and said that because of political correctness, Dirty Harry couldn’t be made now. He also lamented that ‘we have lost our sense of humor’.
He also hinted at an acting comeback.
Eastwood didn’t talk about current political events, but while discussing his then-controversial 1971 film ‘Dirty Harry,’ he waded into a topic he’s touched on before: political correctness.
‘A lot of people thought it was politically incorrect,’ Eastwood said of ‘Dirty Harry.’ ‘That was at the beginning of the era that we’re in now, where everybody thinks everyone’s politically correct. We’re killing ourselves by doing that. We’ve lost our sense of humour.’
This isn’t the first time that Eastwood has spoken about political correctness.
ClashDaily had reported on Clint Eastwood’s complaint about the current generation here:
Eastwood has waxed lyrical on the theme of political correctness before.
Last year, he hailed Mr Trump as a foe of political correctness and ‘the kiss-ass generation’.
‘We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,’ he said. ‘We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff.
‘When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. Secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.’
