Bill & Hillary were greatly relieved when Bush 41 passed away November 30th. This gave them a better excuse to cancel the “An Evening With The Clintons” scheduled for an empty arena near Houston December 4th.
EVEN MAUREEN DOWD IS TIRED OF BILL
Twenty years ago, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd was so enamored with President Clinton that she wrote she would like to give him a blow job in the Oval Office, like his 21-year-old intern did. After attending the tour’s kick-off performance in Toronto November 27th Dodd wrote:
“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’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.”
IN BETWEEN COUGHING FITS,
HILLARY DODGES SOFTBALLS IN TORONTO
Huge Clinton donor and former Canadian ambassador to the U.S., Frank Mckenna, alternately fawned over the Clintons and threw softball questions at them. At one point, Hillary’s coughing fit lasted so long that Bill had to take over.
Toronto is the largest city in Canada and boasts a metropolitan area population well over 6.4 million. Yes, the Clintons attracted a mere 3,300 people to listen to the same anti-Trump diatribes, pro-Globalism clichés and election-loss excuses Americans have endured for over three years. The following night they jetted to Montreal to repeat their blather.
TEXANS & CANADIANS HAVE MUCH IN COMMON
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.” Only 16.6% of the seats were sold, and the tour manager asked that the empty seats be covered so the optics weren’t so bad.
For the SugarLand, Texas event, originally scheduled for December 4, tickets on the official venue website were going for between $29.50 and $399. But a search on second-party sites, like StubHub, revealed tickets going for as low as $7. As recently the week before the event, less than 20% of the seats had not been sold.
WHO WANTS TO SPEND “AN EVENING WITH THE CLINTONS?”
The short answer is: almost no one.
Bill & Hillary Clinton kicked off their 13-City North American Tour in Toronto, Ontario on November 27th to, mostly, the well-heeled. This was fitting since the Clintons view themselves less as Americans and more as world elitists, that is, globalists who jet around the world telling the peons how to live.
“An Evening With The Clintons” was scheduled for November & December and into 2019 as Democrats jockey for position as presidential candidates.
The tour was designed to provide Hillary with a platform to influence the upcoming Democratic primaries. After the 2018 midterm elections and deep into 2019, Hillary is testing the waters for her own possible third run for the presidency. Since the Clinton Foundation donations have dropped to 10% of previous receipts (back when donors were paying her for access to the State Department, then to the Presidency), these grifters hoped to pocket more money, as well.
The tour was billed as “one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history.”
Based on attendance in Toronto, it appears those most interested in spending an evening with Bill & Hillary are those who can afford the most expensive tickets. Of the 400+ seats directly in front of the stage, all but one was taken.
WILL THE TOUR BE CANCELLED AGAIN?
In mid-November, the promoters announced that “An Evening With The Clintons” tour had been cancelled due to extremely poor ticket sales. This writer reported on this: EVEN THE CANADIANS ARE TIRED OF THE CLINTONS
The next scheduled event on the Clintons’ speaking tour is not until April 11 in New York City. If held, the NYC event will come almost four years to the day since Hillary announced her second presidential bid. The election upset continues to feature prominently in her public remarks, amid speculation over whether she might try one more time for the White House.
Does anyone want to place bets on whether the tour will resume?
Ticket sales suggest that America and, perhaps the world, are just plain tired of the Clintons. Twenty-six years on the national stage are enough! Bring on new performers!

PS: Two announced cities are Vancouver BC, & Seattle. As a Portland Area resident for longer than this writer cares to admit, I know these two cities are barely three hours apart by car and less than an hour by plane. I am perplexed why the tour is going to BOTH these cities. One “An Evening With The Clintons” will be enough for the area sycophants. Not sure about Vancouver BC, but Normal Americans have long ago been chased out of Seattle.
