Hillary and Bill Clinton need money. The infamous duo has fallen on hard times since the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation downsized and donations dried up. Even though they bombed at their big speaking tour last year, they are trying it again, but this time they are getting a little help from their Hollywood friends. Well, actor Ben Stiller is helping them out, but it’s not good enough. They already got destroyed. You’ll love this.
Let’s face it. Hillary and Bill Clinton are in their twilight years, and the last thing they want to be doing is traveling around the country and doing a speaking tour. However, they have an expensive lifestyle and will be damned if they don’t squeeze every last drop of goodwill they can muster from their so-called fans.
They already tried that and failed miserably. Bill and Hillary hit the road last year for a tour that failed to generate enough public interest to even fill the seats in the venues they chose. As Breitbart News reported in November, their tour had trouble filling seats from the beginning. Hillary Clinton also had a trademark coughing fit during the first event. In December, ticket prices fell so much that some locations were selling them for $7.
It looks like the Clintons took a page out of the Michelle Obama book tour this time. The 55-year-old former first lady launched her tour with Oprah Winfrey last year and had a slew of other leftist celebrities who were happy to help her out. But, the only problem is Ben Stiller is the biggest name the cash-poor Clintons could get.
Actor Tony Goldwyn and former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha will join them in different cities. And comedian Jordan Klepper will also join the Democrat power couple in Washington, DC. It’s not nearly enough star-power to make this speaking tour a success, but the Clintons actually think they are going to fill huge venues like the Los Angeles Forum.
Well, poor Hillary was trying to show a strong front. “Next week, Bill and I will be in New York on the 11th with @PaulBegala (expect 2020 talk), Detroit on the 12th with @RedHourBen (expect belly laughs), and Philadelphia on the 13th with Nnamdi Asomugha (expect football & Broadway chatter). Looking forward!” tweeted the failed presidential candidate.

“Per a statement, the speaking tour will find the Clintons telling stories ‘from some of the most important moments in modern history. From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department, to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here,’” reported Rolling Stone.
Yeah, it sounds like a real barn-burner. Well, Americans are already weighing in, and it’s really bad news for Hillary and Bill.
“Why? Because they toured by themselves tanked and was halted? Add celebrities…this is like throwing lipstick on a pig. It still ends ugly. Don’t go away mad just go away. You done enough damage and got wealthy from it. Take advice from Miller Lite…know when to say when,” tweeted Bryan Wilson.

“Assembling ‘hollywood stars’ to get people to attend your ‘performances’ Bill and Hillary is a joke! Please go home and leave us alone!!!!” posted “StuDog” on Twitter. This sentiment was echoed over and over again on Hillary’s Twitter feed.

“Hollywood will not help. Their time has passed by. It’s getting embarrassing. They should accept the truth and the fact that they are old news,” tweeted “GA Christensen.” Another commenter said, “Will tickets be on Groupon this time as well? Will the event itself be held in the restroom lounge area? Important questions as last time they tried this they could not fill a phone booth.”

The 2016 election exposed the Clinton’s to fierce research that uncovered that the Clinton Foundation was immersed in dirty dealings. “But as soon as Clinton lost the election, many of the criticisms directed toward the Clinton Foundation were reaffirmed,” reported the Observer.
Foreign governments began pulling out of annual donations, signaling the organization’s clout was predicated on donor access to the Clintons, rather than its philanthropic work. In November 2017, the Australian government confirmed it “has not renewed any of its partnerships with the scandal-plagued Clinton Foundation, effectively ending 10 years of taxpayer-funded contributions worth more than $88 million.”
Now, Bill and Hillary find themselves in a real pickle. They no longer have the millions rolling in. But they are so out of touch with their enormous unpopularity they actually believe they can fill huge venues this time with a few B-list actors. The new and improved speaking tour of 2019 has already failed, but the Clintons are the last to know.
