It’s come to this: Bill & Hillary Clinton resorting to Groupon to sell tour tickets

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

From Fox News: Bill and Hillary Clinton are selling discounted tickets to events on their speaking tour after reports of sparse crowds at their premiere performance.

Discounted tickets for at least nine “An Evening with The Clintons” events have appeared on the Groupon website, which offers discounted deals on activities, goods and services. On Monday, discounted tickets were being offered in a number of Democratic friendly locations, including New York, Detroit, Philadelphia and Boston.

Among the deals: Tickets to an April 11 talk at the Beacon Theatre in New York – normally priced $287 – are going for $145 on Monday. Tickets to an April 12 Detroit talk, originally listed for $220.70, are going for $95. And tickets in Philadelphia for an April 12 talk have been reduced from $208.20 to $85.

The Groupon is apparently working: Tickets to a May 4 appearance in Inglewood, Calif., that were normally priced $77 and reduced to $35 a pop were sold out by Monday.

The Texas stop’s postponement for the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush comes after the Clintons’ premiere performance in Toronto last month, which drew critical coverage over its sparse attendance as well as comparisons with the sold-out book tour of former first lady Michelle Obama. The liberal New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd wrote an Op-Ed after attending the Toronto tour, saying she felt “sorry” for the Clintons, who had to look out at “large swaths of empty seats.”

Hillary Clinton tweeted Dec. 3 that “Bill and I will be traveling to Washington to pay our respects to President George H.W. Bush and his family at the funeral this week. We were greatly looking forward to being in Houston for our event this week, and are excited to come back next year as soon as we find a date.”

Ticket prices for that event seemed to reflect slumping interest in the Clinton tour.

For the Houston-area event originally slated for Dec. 4, tickets on the official venue website were going for between $29.50 and $399. But a search on second-party sites, like StubHub, revealed tickets going for as low as $7.

By contrast, Michelle Obama is on her own speaking tour to promote her memoir “Becoming.” Tickets to see Obama reportedly have ranged from $300 to $2,500. Obama also canceled her event stops in Paris and Berlin last week to attend Bush’s funeral.

Barbra Streisand rips female Trump voters: “They don’t believe enough in their own thoughts”

Barbra Streisand: Doesn’t like to see women being assaulted…

So much for Bab’s proclamation that “we need more love in this world.”

So much for Bab’s proclamation to “stand up against bullying.”

Typical Hollyweird hypocrite.

From Fox News: Barbra Streisand said democracy is “being assaulted” and bashed women who voted for President Trump, saying they “don’t believe enough in their own thoughts” to vote against their husbands.

“I love my country and it’s painful to see democracy being assaulted, institutions being assaulted and women being assaulted,” Streisand, 76, told The Daily Mail in a wide-ranging interview.

A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote; they don’t believe enough in their own thoughts. Maybe that woman who’s so articulate, so experienced and so fit for the presidency [Hillary] was too intimidating,” Streisand continued.

Streisand’s latest album, “Walls,” is a series of protest songs aimed to combat President Trump that were written because the election was “devastating” and she was “heartbroken.”

The album contains a track that directly speaks to Trump and voices Streisand’s distaste for what his administration is doing to America and the world at large.

The song titled “Don’t Lie to Me” contains lyrics aimed at Trump such as: “How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?/All that we built has come undone/How do you sleep when the world is burning?/Everyone answers to someone.”

Streisand also told the outlet that she’s currently on a diet, even blaming Trump for her recent cravings.

“This president made me anxious and hungry for pancakes. Buckwheat pancakes. I had to put butter on them and maple syrup to ease the pain,” Streisand said.

Despite her love of the Democratic Party and hatred of the president, Streisand said she doesn’t ever want to go into politics herself. “I don’t think I’m articulate enough and it’s too late for me,” she said.

This is hardly the first time the actress has voiced her political opinions. Streisand told The New York Times last month that she considered moving to Canada if the Democrats didn’t win a majority in the House of Representatives during the midterm election.

“I want to sleep nights,” she said. ‘I’m just so saddened by this thing happening to our country.”

Before the 2016 election, the singer-actress also spoke about emigrating because of Trump. Like several far-left celebrities, Streisand didn’t follow through on her threats to leave the United States if Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.

“He has no facts. I don’t know, I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country [Australia], if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” she said at the time, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Louis Farrakhan leads “death to America” chant in Iran

Shocker, not.

From Fox News: Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who recently compared Jewish people to termites, led a “Death to America” chant Sunday during a solidarity trip to Iran.

Farrakhan’s trip came ahead of the Trump administration’s re-implementation of U.S. sanctions against the Islamic Republic on Monday.

Speaking to law school students at the University of Tehran, the 85-year-old Farrakhan said “America has never been a democracy,” and also led a “Death to Israel” chant at the end of his talk, according to Iranian news agencies.

“Today, I warn the American government that sanctioning Iran is a big mistake,” he said at a meeting with the Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei. Farrakhan noted his belief America is conspiring against Iran.

Farrakhan’s trip coincided with the 39th anniversary of the 1979 seizure of the U.S. embassy in Tehran, when more than 50 American diplomats and civilians were held hostage for 444 days. The incident kicked off the Islamic Revolution, and Farrakhan told an Iranian audience that black Americans should be considered among the revolutionaries. The infamous activist cited the actions of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khomeni, who ordered the release of black Americans among the 1979 captives.

Video of Farrakhan leading a “Death to America” chant once again sparked calls for Democratic leaders to distance themselves from the controversial figure. Several prominent Democrats, including former President Barack Obama, have interacted or taken pictures with Farrakhan.

Donald Trump Jr. slammed Democrats Monday on Twitter. “When will the democrats disavow this guy? Answer: NEVER,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz called on “all decent people” to condemn Farrakhan after he tweeted he wasn’t anti-Semite but “anti-termite.”

“Nazis use the word ‘termites’ to dehumanize Jews and accuse them of destroying everything good about the world,” Dershowitz explained on “FOX & Friends.”

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, known as America’s Rabbi, also called on leaders to condemn him. “A new low for arch Jew-hater Farrakhan,” Boteach tweeted. “Who has heard of an American going to a foreign country and chanting ‘Death to America?’ Where is Bill Clinton who appeared with him recently, and Barack Obama, photographed with him, and Cory Booker to condemn him?

Farrakhan has previously said “powerful Jews are my enemy” and “white folks are going down.”

Linda Sarsour, a Women’s March co-founder and pro-Palestinian activist, has repeatedly praised Farrakhan and refused to condemn him. Tamika Mallory, another Women’s March leader, called him the “GOAT” or “Greatest of all time,” and served as a national organizer for his “Justice or Else” rally in 2015.

Israeli activist, Hen Mazzig, tweeted out video of the “Death to America” chant. “Nothing, Linda Sarsour?” Mazzig wrote.

NO. Just NO: Chelsea Clinton mulling a run for political office?

Exactly what are her “talents?”

From USA Today: Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of a former president and a former presidential candidate, said ahead of an appearance to promote her children’s book that she wouldn’t rule out a run for office.

She also said that mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has not spoken with her about a repeat presidential run in 2020.

“I think if someone were to step down or retire and I thought I could do a good job and it matched my talents, I’d have to think if it’s the right choice for me,” Chelsea Clinton told The (Westchester County, N.Y.) Journal News.

The daughter of former President Bill Clinton, now 38 years old, talked about the circumstances under which she might consider a political run; her mother’s rumored presidential bid; and her work at the Clinton Foundation, where she serves as vice chair.

Her latest book, Start Now! You Can Make a Difference, (Penguin Random House) is aimed at children ages 7 to 10. Chelsea Clinton tackles issues of health, hunger, climate change, endangered species, bullying and talks about what children can do to make a difference.

Being Babs: Streisand debuts anti-Trump video, “Dont’ Lie to Me”

Speaking of liars:

From Hollywood Reporter: Barbra Streisand is getting political once again. This morning, the 76-year-old Oscar-winner premiered a music video for her new single “Don’t Lie to Me” on her YouTube channel. The political video depicts images of protests, President Donald Trump and the president speaking in contradictions.

The singer-songwriter had dropped a few hints on her Instagram account of when the music video would become available to view, including a photo of what appears to be a Brett Kavanaugh protest accompanied with the lyric “Can’t you see I’m crying.”

“Don’t Lie to Me,” which debuted back in September, is a single off of her upcoming album Walls.

Streisand told the Associated Press the inspiration for the politically-charged single came during a road trip. While in the car the singer was “listening to lies, listening to things that are such craziness,” on the news about Trump and his administration, which made her feel ill.

A lifelong Democrat, Streisand, is no stranger to politics. She has campaigned and donated funds to many Democratic politicians — most recently, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run — throughout her lifetime.

Streisand’s album Walls will be released Nov. 2.

Just what we need: Bill and Hillary Clinton launch US speaking tour

Hope they have plenty of cough drops handy.

From Yahoo: Bill and Hillary Clinton are taking their show on the road.

The famous political couple, who individually charge well into six figures for an address, is launching a 13-city joint public speaking tour of the U.S. and Canada titled “An Evening with the Clintons” that kicks off Nov. 18 in Las Vegas.

Tickets to see the former president and former secretary of state live on stage aren’t cheap. At the 5,200-seat Park Theater in Las Vegas, the same venue where Lady Gaga will soon have a residency, seats cost between $72.48 and $228.44. And at the Opera House in Boston, tickets go for between $120.50 and $745.50, and that doesn’t include fees to promoter Live Nation.

So what can audience members expect from the show?

“Experience a one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history,” the public relations copy for the tour reads. “From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here.”

The tour will wrap up at the 17,505-seat Forum in Inglewood, Calif., an arena that usually hosts music stars. In the coming days, Drake, Phil Collins and the band twenty one pilots will take the stage there. Also on the schedule, however, is former First Lady Michelle Obama, who will appear in mid-November.

The Clintons aren’t novices on the paid lecture circuit. From 2001 to 2015, they raked in more than $153 million in speaking fees for 729 events. As yet, there is no word on how much the former first couple might make for the Live Nation tour.

Hypocrite Lady Gaga: Supporter of Bill and Hillary Clinton is upset by Kavanaugh hearings

Lady Gaga and her Clinton buddies: #BelieveWomen, but only of a certain political persuasion.

Lady Gaga says she was raped at 19 and as a result, suffers from PTSD. In the past, she teamed up with Joe Biden to help sexual assault survivors.

Wonder if this starlet has ever reached out to the sexual assault survivor Juanita Broaddrick? I’m going with NO. What a Hollyweird hypocrite.

From Hollywood Reporter: Lady Gaga stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night to discuss all things A Star Is Born, as well as share her thoughts on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

When asked if she was willing to talk politics, Gaga said “bring it on.” Of Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by multiple women including Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Gaga, who has been open in the past about her own sexual assault, said the ongoing “debate of Kavanaugh versus Dr. Ford is one of the most upsetting things I have ever witnessed.”

“But I will tell you something,” she continued. “Should we trust that [Dr. Ford] remembered the assault? Yes. And I’ll tell you exactly why. She’s a psychologist, she’s no dummy. And when someone experiences trauma, the brain changes. It takes the trauma and puts it in a box so that we can survive the pain.” A vote to confirm the highly controversial Trump pick to the Supreme Court is set to be held Saturday. Kavanaugh has denied all the claims against him.

Gaga added that she believes Ford was probably “triggered” when she realized Kavanaugh would be nominated and she decided to “protect this country.”

(At this point, the article doesn’t expand on any of her claims about Kavanaugh or Ford, it merely moves on to her latest movie. Because when you’ve got a movie to promote #believewomen can take a back seat.)

The pop star-turned-actress was also on hand to promote her new film A Star Is Born, which she stars in with director and writer Bradley Cooper. The film is the fourth iteration of the classic tale of a young up-and-coming star who falls in love with an older, established one whose career is fading as hers takes off. The project is Cooper’s directorial debut and Gaga’s big screen acting debut, although she previously won a Golden Globe for her role on American Horror Story: Hotel.

Of how she got the part, she said that she sang at a charity event the night before she met with Cooper. After he heard her sing “La Vie en Rose,” he wanted to meet with her, and they had an immediate connection. Of first meeting her future director and co-star, Gaga said, “There’s a lot of fake people in Hollywood but Bradley is not one of them.”

And although Gaga is a Grammy-winning artist, she’s not the only one who has a natural singing ability. She told Colbert that she was blown away by Cooper’s singing voice when she first heard it. “That man, he sings from his gut, from his soul and you can be technically perfect, but with no ability to tell a story, and he tells a story when he sings,” she said, adding, “I was drawn to his passion.”

Her character Ally may be a rising pop star, but Gaga said the similarities between her and her character end there. “My character Ally is very different than I was. I knew I had something to say and I wanted to say it… but she’s not that way,” she said, explaining that, “she’s in her 30s and she’s given up. She’s been told she’s not beautiful enough to make it and truthfully she’s insecure.”

Trump-accuser George Stephanopoulos’ wife appeared on TV topless

Three days ago, our DCG posted about ABC anchor, chief political correspondent and “Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos accusing President Trump of “consistently, every single time” taking the side of the man in sexual misconduct allegations.

This is the same Stephanopoulos who was the campaign adviser, senior presidential adviser, and White House director of communications of Bill Clinton, rapist and sexual assaulter.

Bill Clinton ogles women, with his fly unzipped

This is the same Stephanopoulos whose 50-year-old wife, actress-comedian Ali Wentworth, went on national TV stripped to her waist, with just pasties covering her nipples.

Frankly, if I were George Stephanopoulos, I wouldn’t talk so loudly about sexual misconduct, given the cringe-worthy public behavior of my wife.

Stephanopoulos and Wentworth’s two daughters must be so proud.

By the way, George, you’re wrong. President Trump took the side of women in sexual misconduct cases. Their names are Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Willey!

Slick Willie buddy and liberal hack George Stephanopoulos says “Trump always sides with men on sexual misconduct claims”

I bet he said that without any sense of irony.

From Fox News: Bill Clinton spokesperson-turned ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos has been called out for hypocrisy after a combative interview with press secretary Sarah Sanders on Tuesday, when the “Good Morning America” star accused President Trump of always siding with men when it comes to sexual misconduct claims.

“It is absolutely amazing that Stephanopoulos has the gall to say it seems like President Trump is always siding with the men when it comes to accusations of sexual impropriety and sexual assault given his work in the Clinton administration,” conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News.

The interview started off with a series of questions about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein before the conversation shifted to the ongoing sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“The president consistently, every single time, takes the side of the man,” Stephanopoulos said.

Sanders fired back, “It’s interesting that you say that. It’s a lot of Democrats that like to ignore Keith Ellison and Cory Booker. They love to fight and champion women until they disagree with them.”

Stephanopoulos reminded Sanders that Al Franken lost his job over inappropriate sexual behavior.

“A number of other Democrats should have the same type of scrutiny,” Sanders said, before Stephanopoulos interrupted, “Every single time, the president has taken the side of the man against women accusers.”

Sanders said that Trump knows Brett Kavanaugh and has heard his story, explaining that there hasn’t been a “shred of evidence” to back up claims made against the Supreme Court nominee — but the “GMA” star quickly changed the subject.

“Maybe ABC should have found someone with a little more credibility around this issue to ask these questions,” Barron said. “Factually, Stephanopoulos is also flat wrong. President Trump has been a high-profile defender of women like Juanita Broaddrick who were victimized by President Clinton and demonized by the main stream media.”

DemoRAT Hypocrite Kristen Gillibrand: “A country that values women wouldn’t allow this”

Gillibrand and Harvey Weinstein

Gillibrand and Slick Willie

By now you’ve heard about the latest Alinsky tactics to derail Brett Kavanaugh.

DemoRATs are working very, very hard at this smear campaign. It’s coming fast and furious thanks to many, many demoRAT operatives. See here and the many posts on Twitchy.

And the RINOs are, of course, succumbing. Arrrrgggggghhhhh!

Another demoRAT working hard at this effort is Senator Kristen Gillibrand. You should see her Twitter timeline – full of sympathy, empathy and disdain for women who are victims of sexual assault and are not being heard because of the evil republican men.

Some examples of her tweets:

  • “We can’t change our country’s culture of sexual harassment and assault if we don’t change our treatment of survivors. A country that values women wouldn’t allow this.
  • By refusing to treat her allegations properly and by playing games to protect Kavanaugh’s nomination, they’re telling women across the country that they’re not to be believed. That they are worth less than a man’s promotion.”
  • “This isn’t just about one incident. It’s about whether we’ll send women who have experienced sexual trauma back into the shadows.
  • “Why don’t they want the facts?”
  • “We’re all better off when women’s voices are heard.”
  • To every survivor out there: I see you. You deserved better, and we will keep fighting for justice.”

You want to know Kristen about women who were sent back into the shadows because of sexual trauma? Listen to what these women have to say:

HYPOCRITE.

All you demoRATs pushing these unverified and libelous stories about Brett Kavanaugh without acknowledging the voiced experiences of Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey prove just one thing:

You don’t care about women who are victims of sexual assault ONE BIT. All you care about is POWER.

All you demoRATs involved in this smear against Brett Kavanaugh are HYPOCRITES.

I wonder what Mary Jo Kopechne would have to say…had she been a survivor.
