Could it be that, after more than three decades, America is witnessing the end of the Clinton political dynasty
If demand for tickets to see former President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary Clinton, a two-time failed presidential candidate, is any indication, the end is nigh.
The Clintons appeared Friday at Seattle’s WaMu Theater as part of a 13 city speaking tour and The New York Post reported event organizers had to “slash listed prices and even offer discount ducats through Groupon to boost sales.”
The paper said the best seats in the house, which were going for $1785, could be had Friday night for $829, “a steep 54% drop.”
Official prices, as reported by the Seattle Times, ranged from $66.50 to $519.
The reduced pricing is not a recent phenomenon. Tucker Carlson noted in December on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that Clinton tour tickets had dropped to as low as $11 at some venues.
Guest Mark Steyn offered up this gem: “You should always listen carefully when the public is telling you goodbye.”
But then, with the Clintons emerging from their elitist bubble to serve up hypocritical offerings about the rule of law and double standards, who would want to see that?
“I really believe that we are in a crisis, a constitutional crisis,” Hillary told the crowd Friday, according to The Times. “We are in a crisis of confidence and a crisis over the rule of law and the institutions that have weathered a lot of problems over so many years.”
“It is something that, regardless of where you stand in the political spectrum, should give real heartburn to everybody,” she added. “Because this is a test for our country.”
Now giving someone heartburn is a topic the Clintons know well.
The queen of Russian “reset” even criticized President Donald Trump for speaking on the phone with that country’s president, Vladimir Putin.
And rest assured, Slick Willy got in on the charade.
“These people, they don’t believe the same set of rules apply to them that apply to everyone else,” the former president said of the Trump administration, presumably with a straight face.
Hillary is still complaining about losing the 2016 election, and while she’s quick to play the victim, she seems to be hearing the calls to step aside.
“I’ve never heard anyone tell any man who lost an election to go away and shut up,” she said in Seattle.
The famous couple was scheduled to appear Saturday evening at LA’s Forum Theater and The Daily Wire observed that parking “may actually cost you more than seeing the main event.”
Secondary ticket marketplace, StubHub, has tickets for Saturday evening’s show in LA available for a mere $6 — and that’s for a floor seat. Similar-priced tickets are available in the arena’s first and second bowls. The best ticket currently available on StubHub — a third row, middle, floor section seat — is just $47.50.
Mercifully, the tour comes to a close Sunday night at the Park MGM.
