Clintons Kick Off World Wide Tour To Packed House Of EMPTY CHAIRS
Once you begin selling tickets to an event, it’s halfway your responsibility to entertain and the Clintons are finding out that nobody is entertained by their nonsense.
Case in point; many years ago I worked at a mid level sports arena that would hold everything from hockey to concerts to the circus for nine days every year. Every day they would have two shows at 4pm and 7pm.
Note for note, it was the same exact show every single time without change. The first couple of days of the engagement there would be a good number of people there but by the afternoon show of the last day it was almost a wonder if the cleanup crew was going to have to do anything because so few people showed up.
The Clintons have entered that stage of their lives in terms of cultural and political relevance. It’s been a good long time since Bill was out of office and even the most diehard of liberals are getting sick to the stomach at the idea of Hillary attempting a rematch with Trump in 2020. The fact of the matter is, nobody wants to hear from them anymore and this fact is manifesting itself in more ways than one.
Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, began their 13-city paid speaking tour in Canada on Tuesday, where they spoke to a half-empty arena, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
The first “Evening with the Clintons” as it was called, took place in the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, where the couple was interviewed by a Canadian politician and diplomat.
The Daily Mail reported that there were empty seats in both the upper and lower level of the center and that, in the final minutes before the event, one ticket was selling on Stubhub for $6.55 Canadian, which is less than $5 U.S.
Event officials told the Daily Mail that the organizers were expecting about 3,300 people, with about 1,000 buying the more expensive tickets for lower-level seats.
The event was promoted by Live Nation as a “one-of-a-kind conversations with the two leaders as they tell their stories from some of the most impactful moments in modern history.”
Potential ticket-buyers were told that the event, “will feature joint on stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future.”
The Clintons, who remain a source of controversy even off the campaign trail, were seated in upholstered chairs on stage under low lighting, where they were interviewed by politician and diplomat Frank McKenna, the deputy chairman of the TD Bank Group, the Daily Mail reported.
McKenna, who was formerly the Canadian ambassador to the U.S., was also a major Clinton Foundation donor, according to The Daily Wire.
During the interview, the couple touched on hot topics of the day, including giving a stern rebuke of President Donald Trump and some of his policies, according to the Daily Mail.
