Embarrassing News For The Ex-President, As Report Claims There Are Still Thousands Of Unsold Tickets To The Trump, Bill O’Reilly “History Tour”


635 points

Just yesterday, we reported that ex-President Donald Trump is seemingly snubbing his blue-collar supporters and instead turning his focus towards those who have enough money to help him pay the bills. But as it turns out, it seems his base is made up of a whole lot more broke rednecks and a whole lot less rich, white-collars willing to fork out the dough — because ticket sales at those “eyebrow-raising” prices aren’t going well.

Earlier in the year, we reported that the disgraced former president was teaming up with the equally disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, for a series of speaking events/rallies that they dubbed “The History Tour.” All in all, the Trump/O’Reilly mashup is slated to make four stops at venues in Florida and Texas for their short “tour.”

Tickets for the series of events went on sale in June, with a steep price tag ranging from $100 for standard admissions to upwards of thousands of dollars for premium, VIP tickets. By July, POLITICO was already reporting that ticket sales for the event were going rather dismally — a report that Bill O’Reilly didn’t take too kindly too, immediately threatening to sue the publication.

But nevertheless, POLITICO wasn’t wrong.

A new report from Newsweek now reveals that Trump and O’Reilly’s pathetic ticket sales never really improved, with the publication noting, “Just a few days before Trump and O’Reilly kick off their ‘History Tour’ at the FLA Live Arena in Sunrise, Florida on December 11, there are thousands of tickets available to purchase online, including those at the cheapest prices.”

The Ticketmaster website where tickets to the event are primarily being sold shows that more than a thousand seats are still up for grabs at the FLA Live Arena, where the “dynamic duo” is set to appear on the 11th, as well as the Anway Center in Orlando, where they’re slated to appear the very next day.

According to the report, ticket sales for the Texas events aren’t going much better.

“There are still several hundred available to buy at the American Airlines Center, Dallas, Texas, where Trump and O’Reilly will speak on December 19, with the show at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on December 18 also having more than 200 tickets left,” the publication reports.

Despite Trump’s clear desperation for cash these days, Newsweek notes that the ex-president certainly hasn’t devoted much time or effort to advertising the expensive upcoming events.

Is it getting a little too pathetic for even your taste, Donald?

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
