EPIC FAIL: Broadway Play About the Clintons Shuts Down Early Due to Lack of Enthusiasm

Another loss for Hillary…

She’s no longer in Washington. She can’t make it on Broadway, either.

Well, at least a play about Hillary and Bill Clinton can’t make it.

People just didn’t want to see a show about the most corrupt couple the country has ever known, apparently. Go figure.

Here’s the scoop, per Daily Wire:

It keeps spiraling down for the Clintons. First Hillary Clinton couldn’t get the critical votes she needed in key states to win the presidential election of 2016; now audiences are staying away in droves from a Broadway play that celebrates Hillary and husband Bill, forcing it to close over the coming weekend after a paltry 77 performances.

Star power wasn’t enough to convince audiences to sit through “Hillary and Clinton,” which stars Laurie Metcalf (who won a Tony nomination) as Hillary Clinton and John Lithgow as Bill Clinton. The play, authored by Lucas Hnath, was supposed to run until July 21, still a short run by Broadway standards, but now it is set to close on June 23, according to The Hollywood Reporter (THR).

As The Washington Examiner reports, “A production by Scott Rudin, it is set in an alternate universe and is based on imagined interactions between Bill and Hillary Clinton in a New Hampshire hotel during the latter’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign.”

While giving the commencement address at Hunter College in New York, the twice-failed presidential candidate made it all about her.

And bashing Trump.

WATCH:

From Daily Wire:

Speaking to the crowd at a Harris County Democratic Party in Houston, Texas, Clinton lashed out at the president for sharing what she called a “doctored” video of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) having difficulty speaking and slurring words during public appearances.

Clinton called the video “sexist trash.”

Here’s Trump’s tweet:

Here’s Clinton’s tweet:

My take on Trump and his cronies spreading that doctored video of Nancy Pelosi: It’s sexist trash.

It’s also a sign that Trump is running scared.

Ted Cruz Goes Completely Savage On NYT After Paper Commits To Covering Trump As ‘Racist’

Cruz throwin’ bows!

Published

on

Last week a transcript leaked of a speech by New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet as published by Slate, and part of that transcript featured Baquet admitting that since the Russia collusion stuff fell apart, they’re planning on publishing stories that claim President Trump is a racist for the rest of his presidency. This did not at all sit well with Sen. Ted Cruz who went total savage on the publication and shredded them to tiny bits over their obvious journalistic bias and abandonment of principles of integrity in their reporting. via Daily Wire: “There was a time when journalists covered ‘news.’ The NYT has given up on even pretending anymore. Today, they are Pravda, a propaganda outlet by liberals, for liberals. These remarks at their ‘town hall’ are a scandal & would be a firing offense at any real journalistic outlet,” Cruz tweeted in reference to Baquet’s remarks. https://twitter.com/tedcruz/status/1163134559862611969 Cruz then paraphrased Baquet’s remarks: “The Editor says (in effect) ‘for 2 yrs, we covered ‘Russia, Russia, Russia,’ facts be damned; now we’ll scream ‘racism, racism, racism’ for 18 mos, and the rest of the media follow us.’ That’s not journalism.” CNBC reporter John Harwood criticized Cruz’s tweet by claiming “that’s not what the editor said.” In reality, Cruz’s paraphrase is close to what Baquet said. The Times editor said that they covered the alleged Russia collusion story the way they did because they thought it looked “a certain way.” From the transcript: Chapter 1 of the story of Donald Trump, not only for our newsroom but, frankly, for our readers, was: Did Donald Trump have untoward relationships with the Russians, and was there obstruction of justice? That was a really hard story, by the way, let’s not forget that. We set ourselves up to cover that story. I’m…

PHOTOS: Democrat Lawmaker Simulates Assassination of Trump During Political Fundraiser

Imagine if the roles were reversed.

Why are Democrats still allowed to say they accept everyone? Even they know that that isn’t true. Unless you agree with the far-left 100% of the time, you’re not welcome to so much as give an opinion. Check out a Democrat state lawmaker simulating the assassination of President Trump during a recent fundraiser. Replace “Democrat” with Republican and “Trump” with Obama and imagine the outrage. A political fundraiser for @SenatorSandoval simulates an assassination attempt against a mock @realDonaldTrump decked out in Mexican garb. Looks like a man pointed a fake assault weapon at the fake President to pose for a picture. https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162782536248057856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162782536248057856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Reactions: Now @DemsforIllinois responds: “The tragedies in El Paso and Gilroy have demonstrated how hate-filled political rhetoric can fuel violence. These images are unacceptable and dangerous. The place to make our voices heard against Trump is at the ballot box.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1163144306577870848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1163144306577870848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F From @GovPritzker: “As our nation grapples with the epidemic of gun violence, purposely pointing a fake gun at anyone is insensitive and wrong. I condemn actions like the ones displayed in the pictures because they lack the civility our politics demands.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162867673442766853?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162867673442766853&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F08%2F18%2Fno-big-deal-just-a-simulated-assassination-of-president-trump-at-a-fundraiser-for-an-illinois-dem%2F The guy later apologized… Response from @SenatorSandoval: “The incident that took place is unacceptable. I don’t condone violence toward the President or anyone else. I apologize that something like this happened at my event.” https://twitter.com/MarkMaxwellTV/status/1162974105265741824?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1162974105265741824&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2019%2F08%2Fpolitical-fundraiser-for-illinois-democrat-state-lawmaker-simulates-assassination-attempt-of-president-trump%2F Sandoval wants to double the gas tax in Illinois. In other words, Dandoval is a good Democrat. From Fox2Now: Illinois lawmakers want to jack up the gasoline tax. Legislation has been introduced in Springfield that would double the tax and use the revenue for major road and bridge improvements across the state. Lawmakers are trying to find ways to pay for badly needed infrastructure improvements. State Senators Don DeWitte (R-33rd District) and Martin Sandoval (D-11th District) want to more than…
