Oh how the mighty have fallen!
Just a few years ago, the Clintons were commanding 6-figures to give a speech. Now they (allegedly!) can’t fill a stadium for $7 a ticket.
My personal favorite part of this story is this Tweet that claims the Clintons ticket is going for under $9 at this particular venue, meanwhile children’s show Peppa Pig is selling for SIX TIMES that three days later at $54 a ticket.
Losing out to a fictitional kids show who’s characters look like giant [censored] heads.
I’ve censored that comment, so you can draw your own conclusions about what Peppa Pig looks like, here you go:
Anyway, my point is, Bill and Hillary are worth SIX TIMES less value than this!
How the mighty have fallen!
Here's more on the quickly declining speaing tour:
Breitbart covered the tanking ticket sales:
Ticket prices to see former President Bill Clinton and Hillary speak have gone as low as $7 in some locations– and the seats are still empty.
Former President Bill Clinton and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have been touring the U.S. and Canada for months, with dates stretching into mid-2019. Unfortunately for the Clintons, people seem to be quickly losing interest in entertaining their nostalgia and opinions on the current state of the nation.
Tickets currently range from $7 to $1,062, depending on the seating quality. Scalpers are trying to get as much as $500 for a ticket, but considering the ticket sales even at a discount, it may be a risky wager to find someone desperate enough to pay who is simultaneously unaware of how cheap the tickets are going for.
Former first lady Michelle Obama is on a tour of her own, but tickets for those events range from $300 to $2,500. Moreover, they are actually selling.
The bad sales reportedly led to the cancellation of the first U.S. tour stop location in Texas, but Hillary later claimed that was due to Bush's funeral.
Here's more from the AmericanMirror:
Demand is so little in the Bill and Hillary Clinton tour that it actually costs more to park your car than to get in the door.
Kind of sounds like her campaigning schedule in 2016.
A survey of StubHub shows tickets are going for as little as $10.82 for the 8pm show at the Smart Financial Centre.
A review of Ticketmaster, which is selling tickets at face value, but also reselling previously purchased tickets shows many vacant seats the day before the event.
Meanwhile, parking passes are available for $35.
The blue dots indicate seats remaining at full price. The link dots are purchased seats available for resale on Ticketmaster.
There are currently 483 tickets available on StubHub.
During the first tour stop, in Toronoto, Canada, Hillary suffered a massive coughing fit.
Before she could begin her usual spill about how Russia cost her the election, Clinton was completely overtaken by an uncontrollable cough.
As Clinton couldn’t shake the cough for several seconds, the moderator asked Bill Clinton about climate change.
While the moderator offered an extended question, Hillary struggled to stop coughing and compose herself.
Hillary blamed the cancellation on Bush's funeral:

Here's more, from FoxNews:
Bill and Hillary Clinton’s speaking tour is taking a break, with a ticket representative confirming that the political power couple is delaying a Houston-area tour stop originally scheduled for Tuesday after the death of former President George H.W. Bush.
A representative from Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land, Texas, told Fox News on Monday that “An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton” -- which had been slated for Tuesday at the venue -- has been postponed.
Hillary Clinton tweeted Monday afternoon that "Bill and I will be traveling to Washington to pay our respects to President George H.W. Bush and his family at the funeral this week. We were greatly looking forward to being in Houston for our event this week, and are excited to come back next year as soon as we find a date."
The next scheduled event on the Clintons' speaking tour is not until April 11 in New York City.
The Texas stop's postponement comes after the Clintons' premiere performance in Toronto last week, which drew critical coverage over its sparse attendance as well as comparisons with the sold-out events on former first lady Michelle Obama's book tour.
“I can’t fathom why the Clintons would make like aging rock stars and go on a tour of Canada and the U.S. at a moment when Democrats are hoping to break the stranglehold of their cloistered, superannuated leadership and exult in a mosaic of exciting new faces,” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote in a weekend op-ed, after attending the kick-off. “What’s the point? It’s not inspirational. It’s not for charity. They’re not raising awareness about a cause, like Al Gore with global warming. They’re only raising awareness about the Clintons.”
Dowd wrote that she paid $177 for her ticket in Toronto, where she said she felt “sorry” for the Clintons, who would have to look out at “large swaths of empty seats.”
