Bill Clinton bailed on a scheduled campaign stop in St. Louis yesterday. He blamed the weather but the real reason was a crowd so tiny it could have fit in Donald Trump’s hands.

The Hillary Clinton campaign said it was bad weather that kept Bill from addressing a small crowd in Kansas City on Tuesday.

Only about 300 people turned out to see the former president — in a metropolitan area that boasts some 2.34 million people.

KMBC reports the crowd had already assembled and was awaiting Clinton by chanting for Hillary and the Kansas City Royals.

Rep. Emanuel Cleaver said it was Clinton’s pilot who made the decision because of apparent thunderstorms in the area.

“They were trying desperately to convince the pilots to come, but the pilots, I think, exercised great judgement and said, ‘no, absolutely not,’” Cleaver said.

“I’m sorry Bill didn’t make it,” one woman said, “but we didn’t want to risk his health or anything.”

Only one problem with the story. It is unmitigated bullsh**. Clinton was scheduled to speak at 2:15 pm. A review of flight arrivals a Kansas City International (MCI) shows that virtually all flights landing when Clinton would have arrived were on time. This tells you that weather was simply not a concern. What was a concern was the optics of Bill Clinton speaking to a room that was maybe half full.
