Mike Pence was not at all offended by the boos (and cheers) during his visit to Hamilton on Broadway this week he says. But Trump on the other hand thinks he deserves an apology! It all started when Pence entered the theater to watch Hamilton and was booed, but later in the show the cast directly addressed the new Vice-P elect! “Vice-president elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at Hamilton: An American Musical. We really do. We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us … or uphold our inalienable rights, sir. We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us. We truly thank you for sharing this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”
Trump went on to troll the incident and demand an apology! “Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen! The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize! The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior.” Remember when Trump refused to apology for his words and actions—hypocritical we think!
But Pence wasn’t at all offended he tells Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace.“My daughter and I and her cousins really enjoyed the show. Hamilton is just an incredible production and incredibly talented people. It was a real joy to be there. When we arrived, we heard a few boos and we heard some cheers, and I nudged my kids and reminded them that’s what freedom sounds like. I wasn’t offended by what was said. I’ll leave it to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it.”
Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now u try 2 b Pres + ppl respond. That’s pretty much it.
