Bill and Hillary Clinton were originally charging hundreds of dollars for tickets to their national speaking tour. After a run of poorly-attended events, they have hit rock bottom and resorted to selling tickets for their 13-city tour on Groupon at a fraction of the cost after failing to attract crowds at full price — or any price.
What’s worse, the Clintons can’t even sell tickets in liberal strongholds. Their Groupon deal is for a May 4, 2019 appearance in Los Angeles, the darkest blue of Democrat cities.
Per ZeroHedge: As we noted last week, the supposed-power-couple continue to face-plant, after the Daily Mail reported that just 3,300 tickets were sold in the Scotiabank Arena in very liberal downtown Toronto, which holds 19,800.
And as the New York Times’s Maureen Dowd noted on Sunday, the Clinton empire is in steady decline. After paying $177 for a ticket to hear the Clintons, journalist Byron York noted that Dowd could have simply waited until the day of the event and paid less than $10.

As Dowd writes in her Op-Ed, “Curtains for the Clintons”:
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.
What is 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.
And now they’re raising awareness over Groupon…
