Report: Crowds Dwindle At Clinton Speaking Tour, Tickets On Groupon In Effort To Boost Sales

Since leaving the White House and two failed attempts to move back in, the crowds following the Clinton family have dwindled.

As Daily Mail reports, the once magnetic political couple have resorted to using Groupon to sell out venues on their speaking tour.

From $77.80 a ticket to just $35 a piece, the Clintons were forced to drop the price so more people would attend.

“Bill and Hillary Clinton, who just can’t seem to exit stage-left, have resorted to selling tickets for their 13-city speaking tour on Groupon for nearly 60% off after failing to attract crowds at full price – or any price,” Zero Hedge reports.

“What’s worse, their Groupon deal is for a May 4, 2019 appearance in the liberal stronghold of Los Angeles.”

Here’s more, from Daily Mail:

The former president and first lady launched their tour in a Canadian hockey arena last Tuesday to an underwhelming crowd and swaths of empty seats.

Ticket prices were plummeting shortly before the event, with the cheapest seats selling on Stubhub for single-digits –  $6.55 Canadian Dollars, or less than $5.

Now the couple are taking drastic action to avoid another embarrassment on the next stop on their An Evening With the Clintons tour.

They have slashed tickets by up to 60 per cent, and even offered them on Groupon, to try and entice more fans to come and listen to them speak.

On the official site, there were still seats for the tour available for up to $325, with other floor seats going for $83 plus a hefty service charge, but on Groupon, they can be picked up for as little as $35.

The tour is currently on a break for the holidays and reconvenes in New York on April 11, 2019, before moving on to nine other cities including DC, Boston, LA and Las Vegas.

For their May 19 show at The Forum in Inglewood, California, – which seats more than 17,000 – tickets usually priced at $77 are now going for $35, with $120 tickets discounted to $50, and $175 seats down to $72.

If attendance at the speaking events is indeed dwindling, then it could represent a shift on the Left from a Clinton family which represented decades of establishment politics towards more progressives within the party like Senator Kamala Harris or Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Check out how some people responded:

Hillary Clinton is not only facing issues of attendance at speaking events, as a judge recently ruled that she could have to testify under oath again concerning her emails and her handling of a private email server, Fox News reports.

In his ruling Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth assailed Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state as “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

Conservative group Judicial Watch had filed a Freedom of information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State and Justice departments, alleging that Clinton’s email practices represented a deliberate effort to violate the FOIA, Politico reported.

On Friday, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton praised Lamberth’s ruling, telling Fox News it showed the court was “not terribly convinced” that former FBI Director James Comey adequately investigated Clinton’s use of the private server while secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

As a result of the judge’s ruling, “Some people like Mrs. Clinton potentially will have to answer further questions,” Fitton said.
