‘Free’ Obama tickets going for hundreds on Craigslist

obama-farewell-speech-tickets

You couldn’t pay me to attend Obama’s farewell speech, which will no doubt contain a record number the words “I” and “me.”

From MyFoxChicago: Thousands of people lined up early Saturday morning, outside Chicago’s McCormick Place, to get their free tickets to President Barack Obama’s Farewell speech.

The event will be held Tuesday night at 8pm. Tickets were first come, first serve Saturday morning and were gone just a few hours after the doors opened around 6am.

Ticketholders had to have patience Saturday morning.  They waited outside in freezing temperatures in a line that snaked through and around McCormick Place, determined to wait it out and get a ticket to history.

“It is a historic moment, but I don’t know, I could use the money for other things towards tuition and projects,” said DePaul University student Mike Lawani, who fully intended on going to the speech until he realized he could cash in. Lawani wants seven hundred dollars for a pair of tickets.

Some people are selling their tickets for thousands of dollars on third party websites.  One seller asking for ten thousand dollars for a pair of tickets.

Some buyers are getting creative.  One Chicagoan is hoping to swap a 40-inch LED TV for a ticket to history. “There’s got to be someone out there that has a ticket and wants a TV more than the ticket,” said hopeful buyer Allison Ward. “Maybe they can watch the speech on the TV instead.”

If you are worried about counterfeit tickets, officials say each ticket should have a barcode on the front.

  1. We should make watching the POS’s farewell speech a drinking game for every time he says “I”, “me”, “mine” and “myself”. It’s just that I won’t be watching because I can’t bear his sight or the sound of his voice. LOL

    • Dear Eo: I doubt your small body could handle the amount of alcohol needed to match his narcissism, nor would you want to suffer more than a minute of his Marxist drivel. And I am baffled as to why anyone would spend 2 cents to hear the fool.

      And by the bye: don’t expect another false ops staged bombing such as the one the brothers were set up & framed for in Boston a few years ago. There are no such terrorists, except the ones created by the feral gubbmint to suit its own ends & purposes. How’s this as a descriptor of what the nation languishes under: “Narcissism results from… missed moments of emotional attachment, and leads to a relentless search for affirmation.”

      From the same source, how’s this for a perfect summation of Broom Hilda: “At the far end of the spectrum reside individuals with narcissistic personality disorder, whose grandiosity soars to such heights that they are manipulative and easily angered, especially when they don’t receive the attention they consider their birthright.” [https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/narcissism]

  4. Pay money to watch this Halfrican Marxist lie? We will hear about it for days from the media, even if we don’t want it. ‘
    Liberals never cease to amaze me.
    Once again, the taxpayers will pay millions to fly Obozo to a place he will be happy to find supportive crowds requiring massive security to give a soeech that would be more appropriate and better given from the Oval Office.
    One last “Great Wasteful and Futile Gesture” for the Obamunist Legacy. Unfortunately not really the LAST! I’m sure he will find many more opportunities to waste our money in the 10 days following. And I’m sure his demands for Security in “Retirement” will far exceed any previous Presidents’.

    • Longknife 21 . . . your words, “I’m sure his demands for Security in “Retirement” will far exceed any previous Presidents’ ” . . . Regardless of what he may wish to request . . . he should not be afforded any more security officers than Bush (and I hope that now that Mrs Clinton is no longer a POTUS contender that her security force has been scaled back to pre-pre-election schedules.” ) If former Presidents or their families feel the need for up-scale security forces . . . let them pony up the funds to pay for it themselves. In the case of Obummer, he has scammed the American people for long enough.

    • Long knife, I think you are on to something. He is already having a large brick wall built around his rental home. And he also asked for 18% raise in retirement. All the while denying the people the wall we want and need and while giving seniors a paltry .3% COLA this year.
      Now, he has promised, with his shadow government, to challenge Trump and each and every issue he deems needed. I was hoping for the same respect he was given.

  5. I for one will not even watch any of it or even it parts are posted via web or news media! I don’t even watch his so called “press conferences”. Nothing this person has to say interests me…I’m just glad to see him out of office!

  6. 360 more hours , what will he do in that time frame to screw up the country even more ?

    • japos . . . that sound pretty good to me. Each out that goes by is an hour off of that “360” total. Yes, I am also thinking–what can he do to screw over the American people in the remaining time he has left. (Although the Obummer’s have offered to teach and school the incoming President and First Lady .. . I would hope that the Trump’s are smart enough to REFUSE ANY FURTHER FACE TO FACE CONTACT WITH THESE ” ______________” (you fill in the word of your choice) INDIVIDUALS.

      To use the immortal words of Martin Luther King, Jr . . .”Free At Last! Free At Last! Thank God Almighty . . . . . we are almost Free of the Obama curse on our nation.” Now we just need to work at undoing all the evil he has reigned upon our land.

    • I think he is full of surprises. He has already parked all of our aircraft carriers, he has promised his shadow government, his little trick with the national parks, etcetc. Anything could happen.
      Now, he has a speech that will be riddled with lies on his amazing accomplishments, cough cough.

  9. With all the Chicago folks in attendance this will give a new meaning to
    ‘nose bleed seats’;
    They’ll also have “serrated blade stab wound to the back seats”,
    “9mm close range entry and exit wound seats”, and “DOA seats”

    We could all chip in to buy him a ticket home; but no body knows where that is. I think he has made it clear he ain’t leaving any how. Like the nose under the witches wart.

  12. Who in their right mind would pay good money to see Obummer bloviate about his accomplishments . . . first and foremost the doubling of our nation’s debt! I would not even settle for them paying me $10,000 to sit and watch his spiel . . . . . even if I was tied to the chair!

    • Dear Auntie Lulu:
      Knowing you as I do, you & I both would have to be forcibly restrained to endure his MSM BS egoism. Egoism –not to be confused w/egotism!– is best expressed in Goethe’s magnum opus thusly: ‘Der Teufel ist ein Egoist,’ ‘The Devil is an egoist,’ which is certainly what this cancerous fool is all about.

  13. I do not know if this is true, but I heard the DNC will be nominating Roman Polanski as their next presidential candidate.
    They think he’ll carry LA County.
    Meryll Streep will wear a stained blue dress to the convention

  14. Just as we had predicted, headline on Drudge Report this morning (Jan. 11):
    Obama “refers to self 75 times” in his farewell speech last night.
