Bill and Hillary Clinton continued their struggle to fill half-empty stadiums across the country this week; using Groupon and other discount services to bring people to their “An Evening with the Clintons” speaking tour.
“Discounted tickets for at least nine ‘An Evening with The Clintons’ events have appeared on the Groupon website, which offers discounted deals on activities, goods and services. On Monday, discounted tickets were being offered in a number of Democratic friendly locations, including New York, Detroit, Philadelphia and Boston,” writes Fox News.
The pricey tickets saw their value slashed to a fraction of their initial asking price last week, with admission to the event going for as little as $7 just hours before the doors opened.
The slumping sales are in stark contrast to former First Lady Michelle Obama’s national book tour promoting her “Becoming” memoir, with tickets averaging between $300 and $2,500.

EPIC FAIL: Bill and Hillary Speak to EMPTY STADIUMS, Tickets at $6, Down 90%
The 13-city multinational tour featuring Bill and Hillary Clinton continued to struggle this week, with scores of empty seats plaguing the speaking engagements and tickets selling for as little as $6 moments before the event.
According to the Daily Wire, the tickets are plummeting from their initial price of $75-100 after the announcement of the Clinton’s “World Tour,” with Democrats and supporters deciding to pass on the hour-long interview.
“There are a few likely reasons for the Clinton downturn: for starters, they’re overexposed. The Clintons have been a fixture of the political landscape for the last decade, and there are few new stories they can tell audiences. Also, unlike Michelle Obama, who has been getting very raw and personal in her speeches, the Clintons don’t take even calculated risks. Their stage shows — like their campaigns and their paid speeches — are heavily edited and focus-grouped, designed to reveal only what the Clintons want audiences to see,” writes the Daily Wire.
Earlier this week Hillary raised eyebrows among political insiders when she joked about “standing for Parliament” during the Clinton’s joint stop in Toronto, Canada.

FIREWORKS: Hosts of ‘The View’ SLAM HILLARY, Say She's a ‘POLITICAL VIRUS’
Sparks flew at ABC’s ‘The View’ on Tuesday, with co-hosts Joy Behar, Meghan McCain, and Whoopi Goldberg unloading on former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton; saying she was a “political virus” who needs “back-off right now.”
The hosts were discussing Clinton’s recent comments in India where she bizarrely stated that ‘white women’ voted for Donald Trump because their husbands forced them to.
“She ran one of the worst campaigns ever, she didn’t do the kind of ground game in Wisconsin and North Carolina that she should have,” said McCain. “At this point, you can stop making this about virtue signaling and race. A lot of it was about poverty and the economy.”
“If you’re messaging is, ‘Woman can’t think for themselves, that our husbands and our bosses and sons tell us what to do,’ that’s quite the message going forward into the midterms,” she added.
“I think everybody just has to stop talking, we have to stop looking back,” said Whoopi.
“The Clintons are a virus in the Democratic Party, you have to move on,” McCain told Behar.
“I thought that it was time for them to back-off. Right now, right now. They’re not helping the party right now,” Behar agreed.
