Former President Bill Clinton and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton began the first day of their heavily publicized speaking tour with a whimper, not a bang, in front of a rather an empty auditorium.
The Clintons kicked off their tour on Tuesday night in Toronto, Canada. Just hours before it was set to begin, there were still hundreds of tickets available — with prices as low as $15.
Tickets to “An Evening with the Clintons” originally ranged from $53 to $434, but just mere hours before the event, StubHub began dropping the price. The Daily Mail reported that, “One ticket was going for $6.55 in the final minutes before the event.”
According to The Gateway Pundit,”A Canadian woman attending the speaking engagement posted a photo showing plenty of empty seats about 20 minutes before Bill and Hillary were scheduled to come out on stage.”
She deleted her tweet, but the publication captured a screenshot.
According to a TicketMaster sales agent, tickets to the upper levels of the Scotiabank Arena were not even available for people to purchase.

While it was reported that 3,300 tickets were sold ranging from $53 to $200, the drop in ticket sales and the empty auditorium signals trouble for the former power couple. The Arena seats over 15,000 people.
The mainstream media has questioned why the Clintons are embarking on a speaking tour.
CNN wrote on Wednesday, “Some Democrats, too, have questioned why Clinton remains in the political spotlight after her loss, criticism that the former secretary of state has called ‘ridiculous.'”
Even The Toronto Star, known as a progressive publication, headlined an article on Tuesday, “Hillary and Bill Clinton just won’t go away.”

They wrote, Bill sounded “rapsy,” and according to The American Mirror, Hillary “couldn’t shake” a dramatic cough for “several seconds.”
“While the moderator was speaking with the former president, Hillary could not stop coughing and compose herself,” they explained.
Based on their very embarrassing ticket sales, it appears that Americans are no longer interested in the former power couple.

It seems that it is time for the Clintons to give up on their failing political careers, and take some time to focus on their apparent health issues.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
