Bill and Hillary Clinton, now that their donation levels from the Clinton Foundation have now seemed to have dried up significantly in recent years have had to resort to other ways of bilking people out of their hard earned money.
However, when you take a stage to perform you are meant to entertain and the number of people that will show up is reflective of that fact. Also, how much you can get people to pay to see you is reflective of that fact.
Say you were a singer and you sold out a three thousand seat concert hall. It means a lot more if the ticket prices were twenty five dollars than if they were five or ten. However, touring entertainment groups will give away free tickets to fill up a building if the event is being broadcast on television or something like that. Sports franchises do that all the time.
Now, the further down the totem pole you get in terms of your relevance in the world the smaller the ticket price you are going to be able to get people to pay for.
The Clintons are finding that out because we have seen them on television spreading lies for so long that there’s nothing more than we could hear from them that isn’t new. We’ve heard the stories and simply aren’t buying. However, the promoters of these speaking events featuring the Clintons are going so low on the bargain basement prices that they are scraping topsoil with the shovel.
From Daily Caller:
Ticket prices for the Clintons’ world tour have bottomed out, with prices as low as $11 at some locations.
Both Bill and Hillary Clinton have been trekking across the United States and Canada over the past few months and have dates set through May 2019. Audience members can pay to hear the power couple opine on current events and reflect on their legacy in American politics.
The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd paid $177 for her ticket, yet prices for future events have plummeted.
Seeing the duo at the Financial Centre in Sugar Land, Texas, on Dec. 4 runs anywhere from $11 to $80 depending on the seat quality. On resale sites, some sellers are asking for as much as $531 a ticket — although it’s unclear if they’ll be able to find a buyer at that price.
