Bill and Hillary Clinton just don’t know when to call it a day and gracefully go away. They have embarked on a wide-ranging, 13-city paid speaking tour and their first stop was in Canada. Approximately 3,300 tickets were sold for a venue that holds 19,000 and I doubt all those showed. Tickets were going for as low as $5 and they couldn’t pack the house. Just pathetic and humiliating.
Hillary opened up her attacks on President Trump with a coughing fit. This is a woman who says she may run against Trump in 2020. Her health says otherwise.
It was also announced this week that the Clinton Foundation’s donations dropped a whopping 58 percent after Hillary lost the presidential election to Trump. Now, it’s being investigated by the DOJ. Republicans smell blood and corruption in the water and are going for the jugular on the Clintons – and no one has earned it more. The Federalist Papers has more on this sad political show:
The speaking tour of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, started off with a dud.
The pair used the first stop on their tour, which happened in Canada, to take shots at President Donald Trump and his administration.
And she had another coughing fit.
Hillary Clinton had another coughing episode at a recent event.

But sadly for them, they were speaking to a ton of empty seats, The Daily Mail reported.
Bill and Hillary Clinton launched their 13-city paid speaking tour in a Canadian hockey arena Tuesday evening, where there were banks of empty seats and the power couple accused President Trump of joining a Saudi ‘cover-up.’
The Clintons riffed on issues ranging from the U.S. elections to the Iran deal, the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the murder of Saudi dissident Khashoggi, and got a warm reception from the crowd as they jabbed at the Trump administration from north of the border.
‘What makes this so troubling is how much commercial interest both the president’s family and business and his son in law’s family and business have with the kingdom,’ said Hillary Clinton in one of a series of shots at President Trump, who defeated her in 2016.
In an unexpected twist, the Clintons, who suffered throughout 2016 for making millions on paid speeches, were interviewed by Canadian politician and diplomat Frank McKenna, the Deputy Chair TD Bank Group.
McKenna, a former Canadian ambassador to the U.S., was also a major Clinton Foundation donor, and was featured in the book, ‘Clinton Cash.’ McKenna touched on hot topics and blasts from the past, but rarely challenged his subjects.
‘It seems almost offensive to ask you but why does Putin hate you so much?’ he asked the former first lady. ‘You seem like a very nice person,’ he quipped.
‘I think he saw me as someone who had stood up to him and would stand up to him,’ Clinton responded.
Bill Clinton said the U.S. had ‘compromised’ its moral leadership in the world under Trump, and defended his NAFTA free trade agreement.
He said of the recent elections: ‘We got a chance to become a democracy again and reclaim a debate,’ adding that there were Republicans of goodwill ‘who don’t want to make America a single homogenous authoritarian country. We got a chance to have a debate again now.’
The former president apologized for Trump’s angry clash with Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau during his last trip here, setting off a trade clash, though the U.S., Canada, and Mexico ultimately reached a deal.
‘All the rhetoric was just for consumption, it was just rhetoric. And we did some real damage I’m afraid to our relationship and if we did I ask for your forbearance because we do love you, most of us, in America,’ said Clinton, who inked the NAFTA agreement during his tenure…
Clinton recounted for attentive listeners details of the raid that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. She described the dramatic crash of a SEAL helicopter, having been asked a question about lessons learned from the failed raid to free the Iranian hostages under President Carter.
‘Apparently the barbed wire was slightly higher than it appeared in the pictures so the helicopter was disabled,’ Clinton said, after describing how the U.S. produced models to prepare for the raid.
‘In order to leave they had to blow up the helicopter,’ she said, noting that it had ‘advanced technical abilities we did not want falling into the wrong hands.’
Clinton blasted Trump for going after former special forces commander Adm. William McRaven, who oversaw the raid, following McRaven’s criticism of the president.
‘It just absolutely dumbfounds me. I’ve never ever imagined that you would have a president personally attacking people who’ve put their lives on the line year after year after year, for no cause,’ Hillary Clinton said.
The Clintons launched their paid 13-city speaking tour in Toronto in an ice hockey arena Tuesday night.
Organizers blocked off the upper deck of seats. Officials said the Clintons sold about 3,300 seats in a venue that can hold about 19,000 for a big hockey game when the Maple Leafs play.
There were still plenty of tickets available 30 minutes before showtime, and a secondary market appeared to be dropping.
The cheapest ticket available on StubHub was going for $6.55 Canadian, or less than $5.
On the official site, there were still seats up front on the floor available for $325, with other floor seats going for $83 plus a hefty service charge.
Officials told DailyMail.com organizers were expecting 3,300 people, with about 1,000 buying up close seats on the floor.
Live Nation, which is promoting the event, described it as a ‘one-of-a-kind conversations with the two leaders as they tell their stories from some of the most impactful moments in modern history.’

Trump Not Backing Down: ‘If You’re Not Happy Here, Then You Can Leave’
Don’t you find it amazing the people that spew Anti-American hatred..yet..they still live here? It’s time that every American hating leftist finds a new place to call home.
Finally, America has a REAL leader that speaks the truth and isn’t afraid to tell it.
President Donald Trump is not backing down from calling on progressive Congresswomen critical of the U.S. to move out of the country, saying Monday, “If you’re not happy here, then you can leave.”
“If you’re not happy here, then you can leave,” President Trump said, prompting cheers from the audience at a planned “Made in America” event at the White House. “As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.”
“But if you’re happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, very simply you can leave, you can leave right now. Come back if you want, don’t come back, that’s okay too. But if you’re not happy, you can leave,” he added.
The president appears to have been once again referenced Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), who in a series of Sunday tweets, seemingly told to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
President Trump responded to questions from reporters, this time dishing out more specific criticism directed at Omar and Ocasio-Cortez.
“Somebody that comes from Somalia, which is a failed government, a failed state, who left Somalia and ultimately came here and now is a congresswoman, is never happy,” said the president. “[She] says horrible things about Israel, hates Israel, hates Jews, hates Jews, it’s very simple.”
The president also seemingly referenced how Omar once joked about how one of her professors would say “Al-Qaeda” in a serious tone. He also recounted how the Minnesota Democrat downplayed the September 11th, 2001, terror attacks during a speech before CAIR earlier this year.
President Trump then turned his attention to Ocasio-Cortez’s fierce opposition to recent plans by Amazon to build an expansive corporate campus in New York City. Continue Reading

Ocasio Attempts To Grill Former ICE Director – He Destroys Her
If you enter illegally, and you have children with you, you will be separated from them just like any US citizen breaking the law would be. This isn’t rocket science.
No other country in the world would allow anyone to come in illegally and get away with.
How is this bartender in office? Truly embarrassing.
Via The Daily Wire:
Former ICE Director Thomas Homan rendered socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez utterly speechless on Friday during a congressional hearing after the 29-year-old former bartender tried to grill him about immigration-related policies.
“It says the official recommendation, there were three different options presented, the third included the option for family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This initiative would pursue prosecution of all amenable adults including those presenting with a family unit.
Unprepared @AOC tries to come at Former ICE Director Thomas Homan.
She gets eviscerated.
It's hard to watch.
Total savage flex by Homan at the end.
AOC *literally* left speechless.
I've never see a member get more completely & embarrassingly destroyed. pic.twitter.com/F8qn5wkp2f

“Mr. Homan, your name is on this, is this correct?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.
“Yes, I signed that memo,” Homan replied.
“So, you are the author of the family separation policy?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.
“I’m not the author of this memo,” Homan replied.
“You’re not the author, but you signed the memo?” Ocasio-Cortez pressed.
“Yes, a zero tolerance memo,” Homan responded.
“So, you provided the official recommendation to Secretary Neilson on families for the United States to pursue family separation?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.
“I gave Secretary Nielson numerous recommendations on how to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.
“But it says here that you, you gave her numerous options but the recommendation was option three, family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“What I’m saying this is not the only paper where we had given the secretary numerous options to secure the border and save lives,” Homan responded.
“And so the recommendation of the many that you recommended, you recommended family separations?” Ocasio-Cortez continued to press as she seemed unable to understand Homan’s previous responses.
“I recommended zero tolerance,” Homan responded.
“Which includes family separation,” Ocasio-Cortez pressed.
“The same as is whatever U.S. citizen parent gets arrested when they’re with a child,” Homan said.
“Zero tolerance was interpreted as the policy that separated children from their parents,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, again not seeming to understand Homan.
“If I get arrested for DUI and I have a young child in the car, I’m gonna be separated,” Homan responded. “When I was a police officer in New York and I arrested a father for domestic violence, I separated that father from their family.”
“Mr. Homan, with all due respect, legal asylees are not charged with any crime,” Ocasio-Cortez said, refusing to acknowledge the majority of people entering the U.S. at the southern border are not legitimate asylum seekers.
“When you’re in the country illegally, it’s a violation 8 United States Code 13:25,” Homan responded.
“Seeking asylum is legal,” Ocasio-Cortez responded.
“If you want to seek asylum you go through the port of entry, you do it the legal way,” Homan fired back. “The Attorney General of the United States has made that clear.”
Ocasio-Cortez had no response for Homan and immediately moved on to question other people.
