The Clintons ended their Grifter Tour and it was a flop.
When the bottom fell out of the ticket market for An Evening With the Clintons, it really plummeted. The final date of their “speaking tour” is Sunday night in Las Vegas. A quick scan of tickets on Stub Hub for the Sunday night show offers tickets for as little as $15.00, at least when I checked late Saturday night.
A glance for tickets available on sale at Ticketmaster online shows they begin at $45.72 and go up to $257.18. I wrote about this tour back at the beginning of December and even then, ticket sales were slow and had to be discounted. Perhaps realizing they were on rocky ground, the two Clintons first took the tour to Canada as a soft opening before their American dates. The fine folks in Toronto were less than impressed and the ticket sales showed a lack of interest in the former President and his wife, the woman who felt entitled to the presidency but lost to her old friend Donald Trump.
I remember when the Grifter Tour started. Ticket prices were discounted and they didn’t come close to filling the venue.
The tour dates were scheduled in Clinton-friendly cities yet the struggle to put warm bodies in seats was real. Still, audience reaction has been mixed. Just last month in New York City, a tour stop brought Haitian protesters and a man in a front-row seat yelling out, “Bill, this is boring!” Ouch! That night at the Beacon Theatre, the moderator was Clinton loyalist and political consultant Paul Begala.
Friday night’s date at Seattle’s WaMu Theater brought out the true blue Clinton supporters. The stop in Seattle, a liberal haven in the great Northwest, included actor Bradley Whitford as the moderator. Does that name sound familiar? Whitford played the role of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman in The West Wing. Whitford plays the role of a political activist in real life. This week he will co-host a fundraiser in Los Angeles for Mayor Pete’s presidential campaign. Ticket prices in Seattle were deeply discounted.
In deep blue Seattle. How much were they discounted?
The best seats in the house at Seattle’s WaMu Theater on Friday could be had for $829, a steep 54% drop from the $1,785 that the former first couple fetched when the tour was announced in early November.
But organizers soon had to slash listed prices and even offer discount ducats through Groupon to boost sales.
The official prices for Friday’s appearance ranged from $66.50 to $519, the Seattle Times reported.
Only a liberal idiot (redundancy alert) would pay that much to see the Clintons.
Hillary Clinton used a popular phrase with the left – we are in a constitutional crisis.
Yep! Because of a fake dossier that led to a witch hunt and because of a political party and candidate that refuses to accept the results of an election.
“I really believe that we are in a crisis, a constitutional crisis,” Hillary Clinton said. “We are in a crisis of confidence and a crisis over the rule of law and the institutions that have weathered a lot of problems over so many years. And it is something that, regardless of where you stand in the political spectrum, should give real heartburn to everybody. Because this is a test for our country.”
It’s a test to see if Crooked Cankles, Obungler, and the corruptocrats can get away with all of the crimes they have committed. If we had a genuine rule of law, Felonia von Pantsuit would be in an orange jumpsuit and sitting in a prison cell.
She criticized Attorney General Barr as she stated that Barr “would rather be the president’s defense lawyer than the chief law enforcement officer of our country”, as the Seattle Times reported. Funny, I don’t recall any complaints from her when the Obama administration’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, declared himself Obama’s “wingman”.
It’s different when they do it.
And then the best line of the evening occurred. Not surprisingly, it was Bill Clinton who delivered an unintentionally ironic remark. He said, “These people, they don’t believe the same set of rules apply to them that apply to everyone else.” I know. I laughed, too. Self-awareness is hard, y’all.
That’s different because shut up.
But wait, there’s more. The Clinton’s show moved to California Saturday night and tickets went for as little as $2.00. Wow. Imagine that. Some California Democrats listened to Bill and Hillary, a former president and a former Secretary of State (and the leader of pantsuits nation) in person for a couple of bucks That makes the $15.00 tickets in Las Vegas look over-priced, doesn’t it?
Paying to listen to BJ and the PIAP whine at even $2.00 is overpriced. Now I would pay to watch them do a perp walk off to prison.
