And this is how their tour ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.
(With apologies to T.S. Eliot) Bill and Hillary’s sad last lap after sliding into political irrelevance is finally over, with the ending worse than the beginning.
When they first launched their speaking tour, we reported (between side-splitting guffaws of schadenfreude) the embarrassingly-bad reception.
It seems like only yesterday we reported how their tour limped out of the gate:
If the crowds get any smaller, they can thank everyone in attendance… by name.
Just before it opened, tickets to their failed show in Toronto were selling on StubHub for as little as $6.55 Canadian, or Four dollars and ninety-two cents US.
Sitting in front of an empty stadium like that has to crush a few inflated egos.
Ahhh, yes remember those halcyon days when tickets would bring in almost five whole dollars each? Those would be what the Clintons’ tour managers must now call ‘the good old days’.
If you mean ‘ticket prices’, that is correct.
In LA, if you’re too broke to buy a Starbucks Coffee, you might still have enough for a ticket to watch the washed out hopes of a couple of derelict political holdovers from the 1990s in a desperate attempt to remain relevant.
Tickets were selling on Stub Hub for two bucks.
The event billed as ‘An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’ continued at the LA Forum in Inglewood, California Saturday night and tickets were listed for as little as $2.
Seats in the Lower Bowl 131 section were available on Vivid Seats while the same website was offering admission for the best section – center in front of the stage – for $92.
It’s a comedy, or perhaps a tragedy, depending on your party affiliation.
Oh how the mighty have fallen.
It’s almost as embarrassing as the NeverTrumper whose opening weekend sold a single ticket.
