Donnie and Bill ‘history’ tour turning out to be a loser—Trump and O’Reilly not filling the seats


The four stops on the Trump-O’Reilly Fun Fest are in Sunrise, Florida; Orlando; Houston; and Dallas. So the pair do a minimum of travelling and remain on supposedly friendly territory. The whole thing is over in just a single week, because this is apparently the longest period anyone can stand to talk with Bill O’Reilly or Donald Trump, even if they are Bill O’Reilly or Donald Trump. (If you are signed up to be a roadie for this tour, please get in touch.)

There are also some peachy perks available, including an $8,500 “VIP Meet & Greet Package” that nets a 45 minute pre-show visit with the “stars” of the event, including selfies with both Tweedle-grope and Tweedle-grabber. 

The white section on the left is not for sale. The blue area is unsold. Which seems to indicate that the actual number of tickets sold so far is about what might be expected for a sixth-grade violin concert for kids whose parents just aren’t that enthused. And you have to wonder if the people who bought the cluster of cheap seats at the far end of the stadium are really there for, let’s say, purposes other than being enthralled by Trump’s tales of what happened when he pressed that Coke button. 

Also, just to rub in that comparison one more time, when Michelle Obama announced her “Becoming” book tour in 2018, tickets at the first venues “sold out within minutes” and the rest of the sites sold out within two days. Oh wait, here’s another data point: “Bill and Hillary Clinton’s joint Live Nation tour in 2018 and 2019 … saw events sell out within a week or two weeks.”

Honestly, they should give out free tickets to anyone who can name the “network” that hosts O’Reilly’s current program. That would fill at least a dozen seats.
