Bill and Hillary Clinton are on the comeback trail.
Hillary has dropped multiple hints that she would like to be President and could challenge Donald Trump in 2020.
But the Clintons got the bad news that sent their lives spiraling out of control.
Part of the Clintons’ comeback tour includes appearances in 13 cities.
This tour takes the Clintons to key swing states like Nevada, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Now, with the Clintons, there is always a financial motivation.
So they also scheduled dates in liberal bastions like New York City, Toronto, Montreal, Boston and Washington, D.C.
These paid speeches were a way to rehabilitate their brand as well as line their pockets.
But things did not go according to plan.
One of the Clintons’ first appearances was made to a barely half-full arena in Canada.
They arrived to find a sparse crowd at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Naturally they ranted and raved about Trump.
Hillary picked up on the issue of the day and accused Trump of siding with the Saudi’s in the killing of pro-Muslim Brotherhood activist, Jamal Khashoggi, because Trump and his family have financial ties with Saudi Arabia.
“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,” Clinton raved.
But this was fake news.
Trump already addressed this line of attack in an interview with the Washington Post.
“The last thing I care about is doing business with people. I only do business for us. Somebody said, well, maybe they’re an investor in one of his jobs. The answer is no. But I just feel that it’s very, very important to maintain that relationship,” Trump told the Post.
However, facts and reality are not important to Clinton or her audience.
If she wants to make a comeback, she has to launch foaming-at-the-mouth attacks on the President at every turn.
But the poor attendance in Toronto shows that may not even matter anymore.
The left has moved on from the Clintons.
They are no longer a box office draw.
Even though the Democrats won back the House in November, no candidates wanted to be seen in public with neither Bill or Hillary during the campaign.
This was the first time since the 1980s that they were not front and center in the Democrats electoral strategy.
And there were good reasons for this.
First, any Democrat campaigning alongside Hillary Clinton would be offering up ready-made material for GOP attack ads.
Her favorability rating actually decreased since she lost in 2016.
Most losing candidates see their ratings go up as the American people soften their stance towards them following a defeat.
Secondly, stumping with Bill Clinton invited questions about as his past sexual misconduct scandals.
The MeToo movement invited many liberals to reevaluate Clinton’s abuse of women and the manner in which they swept it under the rug.
Democrats – who had the wind at their backs this election season – wanted to avoid any unnecessary controversies.
And that is what Bill and Hillary Clinton are these days – unnecessary controversies.
They no longer bring anything to the table, so the activist Democrat base would just as soon have nothing to do with them.
And the low ticket sales for their speaking tour is proof of that.
