It seems Americans don’t really care what the Clintons have to say anymore.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have postponed a scheduled stop on their North American speaking tour, and with ticket says rumored to be dwindling, it’s unclear when they will reschedule — if ever.
The Clintons were slated to speak in Sugar Land, Texas on Tuesday.
They released a statement attributing their choice to cancel the event to the passing of President George H.W. Bush.
They wrote in part:
President and Secretary Clinton will instead travel to Washington D.C. to pay their respects to President Bush and his family. The new date will be announced once confirmed.
The former secretary of State later tweeted that a new date would be announced next year.
But while the Clintons said they delayed their event to attend memorial services for President George H.W. Bush, it isn’t clear when they will reschedule their talk.
Ticket sales were reportedly low for the events, with a local ABC affiliate reporting that wholesale tickets went for as low as $70.
But some sites even rumored that people were paying as little as $10 to see the Clintons speak on their tour, which is entitled: “An Evening With The Clintons.”
You can even buy tickets for a May tour stop in Los Angeles, California for less than half-off on Groupon — yes, Groupon!
Moreover, several videos have surfaced at recent Clinton events showing more empty seats than full ones.
Rather than speaking for an empty house, the presidential couple apparently decided to spend their time at a wedding in India, instead.
Hillary sightings on Twitter revealed that the former first lady and failed presidential candidate was hanging out with the Ambani family this past weekend.
Mukesh Ambani is the chairman of Reliant Industries, and is more than likely one of her major donors.
Hillary and Bill Clinton were not alone at the wedding celebration, either, as John Kerry was also reportedly spotting getting his groove on.
Additionally, superstar liberals Beyonce and John Legend were scheduled to perform at the wedding events.
Clinton will apparently need some time to recover from the wedding, as the tour is not slated to pick back up again until mid-April — but don’t hold your breath.
Based on the current ticket prices and availability of tickets, Bill and Hillary may decide they have another social event that is more worthy of their time than sitting on a stage and talking to an empty arena.
