Friday, Politico reported “Ticket sales are moving slowly for the coming Trump-O’Reilly stadium tour.”
The report acknowledges “the events are not until the end of the year,’ but claims “so far, the pace of purchases has been slow compared to other acts, arena officials say.”
Trump spokeswoman Liz Harrington saying in a statement “The History Tour has already sold over $5 million of tickets, and the excitement and enthusiasm is unlike anything we’ve seen before.”
Meanwhile, arguing the article is “false” and “totally ridiculous” O’Reilly reportedly argued that ticket sales were at $7 million, higher than the number Harrington gave.
“We haven’t spent a nickel on marketing, nothing,” he said. “All those 7 million for four shows were done on the announcement. Marketing will start in about a week. Nobody has sold tickets this fast at this price, and VIPs are sold out at three of the four venues.”
O’Reilly also reportedly threatened Lippman, saying, “You put one word in there that’s not true, I’ll sue your ass off, and you can quote me on that.”
“You’re just a hatchet man, and that’s what you are,” he added.
