After Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Trump last November, she’s going on tour to promote her new book, “What Happened,” and she’s charging the big bucks to anyone who wants to come and see her.
Overcharging people to watch a commercial for a product Clinton hopes they will also give her money for sounds sort of crazy when you say it out loud.
Then again, that’s only because it is.
Hillary Clinton, however, doesn’t see the irony in charging Canadians 3,000 Canadian dollars to take a picture with her while simultaneously claiming she knows “what happened” when she lost the election.
What happened was this. Her blindness to how her actions look to the public is clearly still afflicting the former candidate.
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Republican Charlie Sykes remarks that Hillary Clinton is going to Wisconsin as part of her book tour, remarking “At least she found Wisconsin [and] the upper Midwest.”
When the folks at MSNBC allow for comments like that, and laugh about it, you know there’s a problem.
Joe Scarborough asks how much Clinton will charge, and co-host Mike Brzezinski states, “There actually is a charge.”
When it comes to the woman who earned tens of millions from speech fees, “there actually is a charge” for her book tour is about as surprising a statement as “there actually is snow” in Siberia.
“What Happened” is scheduled to be released September 12th, and there’s obviously a charge for a seat, but if you want a good spot or a picture with her Majesty, then you’d better be willing fork it over.
[…] a VIP ticket to an appearance in Canada costs $2,375, guaranteeing two front-row seats, a photo with Clinton backstage and a signed book.
“It is standard for high profile authors to do book tours that sell tickets to events, but Clinton’s tour takes it to a new level of greed,” an industry source told Fox News.
Tickets for her appearance in Florida range from $50 to $375.
Watch the “Hannity” discussion on the tour below.
Ouch. That pretty much nails it.
Yes, she is a “terrible politician” and “this is what happened.”
You can’t put that kind of price tag on a viewing of you advertising “your” book and expect us to believe you finally figured out what went wrong before.
I likely don’t have to burst anyone’s bubble that Hillary Clinton did not “write” a book since November. She has ghostwriters do that. Her “three man team” lately is Dan Schwerin, Ethan Gelber, and Ted Widmer.
So the book on what it was like being the first woman from a major party on the Presidential ballot might well have been written by a dude, but Hillary Clinton will sign it for you and smile near you for $2,375.
Assuming you can afford it, you’ll be able to hear and see Clinton’s best explanation for what really happened in November: herself.
