Clinton tour panned as ‘pathetic’; empty seats, decreasing ticket prices signal rough road ahead

During the second stop of their poorly received 13-city tour across North America, former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, bashed the United States and suggested that its northern neighbor, Canada, is a better country.

“Canada has done such a good job of both managing its contemporary diversity and it has a very interesting immigration system,” Bill said during their stop Wednesday in Montreal, according to the Montreal Gazette. “And yet it’s still Canada.”

“And I just think that you can model the idea that you can become more diverse and still keep your culture and your values. It’s really very good for a modern economy. The United States will have to return to that if it expects to play a positive role in the future,” he added.

“It’s going to be very bleak indeed if we all become more authoritarian and more homogenized and hunkered down on ourselves. It would be a big mistake. We shouldn’t do it.”

His arguments echoed the dubious left-wing talking point that U.S. President Donald Trump is somehow a would-be authoritarian and fascist. The evidence strongly suggests otherwise.

Hillary chimed in as well Wednesday to point out how Canada has “one of the most dynamic economies for building the middle class of any place in the world” despite its socialized health care system.

The country provides “a basic level of human support that everybody should have. It should be a right, not a privilege,” she said, ignoring the country’s numerous health care problems, including rationing. Two years ago a young Canadian girl with Leukemia died while waiting for treatment.

Before concluding, Clinton took one final dig at the United States, telling her Canadian audience that she needs them “to bring us [the American people] back to our senses.”

This marked the second time in just a week that the Clintons had trashed the U.S. During the first stop of their tour Tuesday in Toronto, the duo specifically trashed America’s president.

Regarding President Donald Trump’s diplomatic move to not punish Saudi Arabia over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, Hillary suggested the president’s motivation was financial and accused him of participating in a cover-up.

“We have a president who is the part of the cover-up as to what happened in that consulate or embassy when Mr. Khashoggi was murdered,” she said.

“What makes this so troubling is how much commercial interest both the president’s family and business and his son in law’s family and business have with the kingdom,” she added.

That’s called a conspiracy theory, and for some reason it received no pushback from the media. Their insanity did however pique the attention of former New York congresswoman Nan Hayworth.

“If you look at that Toronto venue, that was an enormous stadium. 20,000 people it could seat. They had 3,300 people there. Tickets were sold for a fraction of the lowest ticket prices,” Hayworth said during an appearance Wednesday on Fox News.

“In a way, it’s kind of pathetic. Does anybody care what they have to say? They’ve been like the portrait of Dorian Grey revealed in the #MeToo era.”

Listen:

She was technically correct. The Clintons’ tour has performed atrociously. The lowest-priced seats for the Toronto event were only $6.55 CAD, according to the Daily Mail.

According to National Review contributor Jonathon Van Maren, who attended the Toronto event, “the arena was still nearly half empty” when the show began.

“When I showed up at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena at 7 p.m. sharp for ‘An Evening with the Clintons,’ there were still hundreds of vacant seats,” he wrote. “A half hour later when the 42nd president of the United States stepped out onto the stage with former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, the arena was still nearly half empty.”

“And many (including me) were there only because the ticket prices had been slashed from their original $150 (U.S.) down to a mere $17 on some ticket sites by Tuesday morning.”

Maybe Hayworth’s right about nobody caring what the Clintons think? All of this is not good news if you’re planning to run for president, again.

That’s the sentiment that appears to be trending on Twitter:
