“I’ll sue your ass off,” O’Reilly warns Politico over report that many tickets for his Trump events are unsold.
Conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly and TFG (The Former Guy) are joining forces for a “History Tour” which will feature interviews that “provide a never-before-heard inside view of his administration — which will be historical in and of itself.” Trump said the interviews would be “hard-hitting sessions” but also “fun, fun, fun, for everyone who attends.”
The tour starts with four cities in Texas and Florida with tickets ranging from $100-$300 as well as a VIP package including a 45-minute meet and greet with the duo for $8500.
But apparently ticket sales are sluggish.
“There’s still a lot of tickets open,” a box office employee at Orlando’s Amway Center told Politico, noting that a Bad Bunny concert that won’t actually happen until next spring had sold out in two days.
In Dallas, a box office employee told Politico that “a large number of event tickets” are still available, while in Houston 60-65% of tickets remain available. The first show is scheduled in Sunrise, Florida, for December 11, but the box office employee there said sales were expected to be higher by now.
“It hasn’t been [selling] like crazy,” the employee said, adding that events for comedians Katt Williams and Joe Rogan sold “significantly” better.
O’Reilly specifically pushed back on reports that Orlando ticket sales were low, calling it “bullshit,” although he did not know exactly how many tickets had been sold at that arena.
O’Reilly then threatened the Politico reporter, saying, “You put one word in there that’s not true, I’ll sue your ass off, and you can quote me on that.”
