A photo of a Groupon deal for former President William J. Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton shows ticket prices for their North American tour “An Evening with the Clintons” slashed in half.
Thursday night, the Clinton’s are scheduled to play Los Angeles, with tickets on Groupon selling for $35, cut down from the original $77.50.
Remember the days when the Clinton’s used to give half million dollar speeches on Wall Street, or in Russia just before the Uranium One deal? Coincidentally, I’m sure, it appears that now that the Clinton’s have zero influence in government, their speeches aren’t worth as much as they used to be. Imagine that.
Los Angeles is not the only city wherein Groupon is expecting that Clinton tickets will be a tough sell. Prices are already being slashed for events as far in the future as April, 2019, which does not bode well for the rest of their tour. In some cases, the prices are as much as 90 percent off.
Pundit Mark Steyn noted as much on Fox News earlier this week. The cable network reported:
“He said that it was unbelievable that only a few years ago when Hillary Clinton was still in politics or seeking the presidency that untold amounts of money flowed into the Clinton Foundation.
But, Steyn said, once Hillary lost, that money dried up and the couple decided to embark on a transcontinental speaking tour.
He said that they “raked in big bucks…from Saudi princes and Kazakh oligarchs” but now “can’t get people to give them $10.”
“And that’s ten dollars Canadian [money],” Steyn riffed. “Thanks to [Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau, that’s like $1.79 American right now.”
The Clinton’s may see thousands of empty seats along their tour, but surely they will not give up. The couple will likely grift to the grave.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
