Bill and Hillary Clinton just launched their speaking tour as they try and pad their pockets with cash. But, it didn’t go as planned. First, they failed to pack the 19,000 seat arena in Toronto. With so many empty seats, it was an embarrassment. They trashed President Donald Trump over not believing in “climate change.” Then, it got worse. Hillary had a “medical issue” on stage which was caught on video. You don’t want to miss this.

The “Hillary & Bill” show launched without any fanfare. It’s not surprising that people aren’t clamoring to see the aging couple who are so overexposed. According to the Daily Mail, this latest money grab from the Clintons managed to attract only 3,300 in a stadium that holds 19,800 — which works out to be 83 percent empty.

This figure is made even more embarrassing by the fact that as the date of the event neared, the venue was not able to give tickets away at just $6.55 each. Ticket prices started between $53 and $200 Canadian. And to top that off, the former First Couple used most of their time bashing President Trump.

Speaking about the president pulling out of the Paris Accord and his refusal to buy into the leftist’s line on global warming, Hillary said, “You literally you can’t make this stuff up. A dozen times a day your head is spinning.” CNN reports, “Hillary Clinton returned to Trump’s gut, criticizing him for saying he does not ‘believe’ a recently released dire government report on climate change.”

“It just riles me up,” she said. “If you won’t listen to people who actually spend time over decades studying problems, my goodness, your gut is not the answer to everything that is important in the world, I’m sorry.”

Well, the failed presidential candidate might want to get all the facts about the so-called “governmental report on climate change.” The Daily Signal reports, “However, critics pointed out the report relies heavily on an ‘exceptionally unlikely’ worst-case scenario that projects 4 degrees Celsius of warming by the end of the century.”

Trump echoed those criticisms, including disagreeing that global warming would considerably impact the economy. But Hillary knows that kind of criticism plays well for the rabid leftists, so who cares about the truth?

That brings us to Hillary’s “medical issue” on stage that really is the only reason the Clintons are getting any press coverage. Right in the middle of the “talk,” the 71-year-old had one of her famous coughing fits that went on for over a minute as she looked to Bill to rescue her.

Breitbart reports, “While the aging Clintons spent much of the night bashing President Trump, they did so in front of a nearly empty room that proves just how out of touch they have both become. The belief they could fill a hockey arena is the worst kind of vanity. Had the event taken place at a smaller venue, the Clintons’ diminishing appeal would not have been quite so obvious.”

Yet, President Trump continues to draw crowds who wait in line all day and then fill arenas up to the rafters. So maybe it’s time the Clintons just go away. In fact, that’s what CNN is saying.

“But the volume of calls for the Clintons to step off the stage were louder than ever during the 2018 midterms, especially for Bill Clinton, whose affair with Lewinsky and other accusations of impropriety have gained a renewed examination amid a public reckoning and national conversation about the treatment of women in the workplace,” reports CNN.

Even a former Clinton aide turned on them, saying, “I just think the optics of going to an event where people are paying to see them, and they are financially gaining from this, I am not sure that is the right way to reingratiate them back into the public sphere.”

With the Clinton Foundation in shambles and knowing they have a high-end lifestyle to fund, Bill and Hillary are back on the road again. But this time, even those that usually support the Clintons are finding it hard to say anything good.
