Australia and New Zealand will be the next destinations for Hillary Clinton’s What Happened book tour, with “exclusive first access” tickets to hear her speak in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland announced.
The former First Lady and U.S. Secretary of State, 70, will head south in May as part of a tour recounting her failed 2016 election campaign. At the same time she will be promoting her written account in the memoire What Happened.
The opportunity to hear the beaten candidate speak will not be cheap for Aussies and Kiwis. Entry to the tour starts at AUS$195 (U.S.$154) and runs all the way up to AUS$495 (U.S.$392) for top-of-the-line VIP tickets which include front of house tickets, access to a pre-event cocktail party and a copy of the book.
Mrs. Clinton will be “free from the constraints of running, share the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules,” a blurb for the event revealed. …
The tour follows a soft interview Mrs. Clinton gave to Australian journalist Sarah Ferguson last October after which the reporter from the state-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) admitted she gave the failed presidential candidate an easy ride because “she’s been through enough.”
I wonder what tone the local ABC will adopt? Worshipful? No mention of her corruption, mendacity, missing emails, or husband’s rape victims, I’m sure.
