Tampa, FL. - Clint Eastwood steals the show. The actor's speech on the final night of the Republican National Convention is what everyone is talking about on social media.

The RNC's "mystery speaker" turned out to be quite a surprise.  

"What do you want me to tell Romney? I can't tell him to do that. You can't do that to himself," says Clint Eastwood during a fictional conversation with President Obama during his speech.

It's been called bizarre, brilliant, weird and disrespectful on social media sites.

The term "eastwooding" has been born and hundreds of people have uploaded photos of themselves pointing at empty chairs.

The Obama campaign tweets a picture of the back of a chair, with a little plaque that says "the president" and the caption, "this seat's taken."

An account named @InvisibleObama was created, which tweeted this: "Quick. Turn on MSNBC. I'm going to be all over it right now. Well just my chair, unless you have invisible glasses, or you are Clint Eastwood."

Hundreds of comments were left on our 10 News Facebook page. Marie Miller says "he was frickin' hilarious. I really liked the part where he said this is OUR country and our elected officials are OUR employees and when they do a bad job we have to let them go."

Carrie Fisher says "Eastwood was just too much. I don't think his comments were appropriate at all. This is not comedy central. Not a good choice!"

Then there were some hilarious tweets. Ben White says "Clint Eastwood is in my bathroom right now yelling crazy stuff at my toilet."

FastLaugh tweets, "give Clint Eastwood a break...the RNC asked him to speak about ObamaCare and he thought they said ObamaChair."
