Tickets to the much-vaunted Bill and Hillary speaking tour quickly bottomed out a $7 a pop. But the lingering question remains: Are the Clintons even worth the seven bucks?
Now disgraced ex-Pres. Bill Clinton and “crooked Hillary” as Pres. Donald J. Trump calls her, opened an international speaking tour in Canada. Call it high hopes, but the former power couple apparently believed they had an opportunity to earn some quick cash by booking arena’s that topped 10,000 seats. It seems more like arrogance considering fellow Democrats issued subtle but stern warnings for the Clintons to stay away and be quiet during the run-up to the mid-term elections.
And despite the Clinton Foundation suffering a free-fall in charitable donations, Bill and Hillary just refuse to take a long look in the mirror and recognize that Americans are fed up with the lies, misdeeds and sexual assault allegations.
So enamored with their self-image, the Clintons’ initial ticket prices reportedly exceeded $1,000 for best-in-house seats. Even Canadian scalpers took a bath on the first event that opened with nearly 7,000 empty seats with prices for “An Evening with the Clintons” dropping just under $7. Naturally, events such as these commonly include a hundred or so freebies and guest list attendees. Hillary reportedly burst into another of her fabled coughing fits after seeing the mostly vacant 10,000-seat arena.
She managed to recover in time to engage in another boring Trump-bashing fest. Perhaps the Canadians who saved their $7 figured it was cheaper to watch CNN or an episode of The View to satisfy any fake news needs. Adding insult to injury, Michelle Obama is also on tour with tickets that are selling from $300 to $2,500, and she reportedly cusses people out when she doesn’t like their questions. Back to the original question: Are the Clintons worth $7?
Consider for a moment that the Top 10 YouTubers earned a combined $180.5 million in 2017 for basically playing video games and letting strangers watch. The highest paid YouTuber in 2018 is a 7-year-old whose channel earned $22 in a 12-month stretch. The average motivational speaker who never held a public office pulls down more than $100,000 per year.
The Clintons recently postponed a Texas tour stop where tickets had reportedly been lowered to as much as $15, which is about the cost of a Disney movie in a decent theatre. If you get the senior discount, the cost could be as low as $7 and far better entertainment value.
The couple’s top-tier price was reportedly more than $1,000. Michelle Obama pulls don $10K on the high end. Many expect the Clintons to start giving away tickets to save on embarrassment and prices could get down to $5 or less.
Still, Hillary rails against Pres. Trump like a petulant child, claiming his administration is corrupt. That tired old line barely gets a laugh anymore considering she operated a multi-million-dollar pay-to-play scheme as Secretary of State and reportedly paid for their daughter’s wedding with funds from a so-called charitable organization.
Given that a complete value meal runs about $7 at many fast-food chains, it doesn’t seem like a bargain to have to schlep down to the venue and listen to Hillary all over again. Between the traffic, parking and boredom, fast-food makes more sense and it’s not even good for you.
For just another 99 cents, you can get a month of Netflix on two screens and binge-watch “House of Cards.” It’s similar to Bill and Hillary’s time in office — and you don’t even have to leave your house. Some of the other streaming services are reportedly offering discounts that could mean change back from that $7. Not to be snarky, but what have the Clintons done to earn $7? Let’s review.
Bill gave us NAFTA which decimated the American manufacturing sector and sent our jobs to other countries while he was busy chasing interns in the White House. He lied under oath and to the American people on national television, and had repeatedly been accused of sexual misconduct and even rape. Although he skated on a partisan impeachment vote, he’s a disgrace in the #MeToo movement.
Hillary, by contrast, is best known for sleeping through the Benghazi Attacks as American heroes fought Islamic insurgents through the night. Americans died while Hillary told military support to stand down and curled up with a pillow. Bill was reportedly in another bed.
Are the Clintons worth $7?
Save your money and super-size that order.
