VP-Elect Mike Pence Booed at ‘Hamilton’ Play; Trump Reacts with Anger (WATCH)

*Vice President-elect Mike Pence and his family hit up the “Hamilton” play on Broadway Saturday night and ended up getting lectured by the cast and booed by the audience.

Needless to say the big man wasn’t thrilled and jumped on Twitter to express his feelings.

“The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”

“Apologize?!” You, Donald Trump, of all people demanding that someone apologize. We’re sure that when you apologize for all the crazy crap you’ve said, then maybe someone else will do the same. But we’re not holding our breath.

Anyway, when the cast took their bows, Pence stood up to leave, but Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr implored him to stay and read what was clearly a prepared statement, saying in part:

“We are a diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.”

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote and originally starred in the play, says he’s proud of Dixon for “leading with love,” adding “ALL are welcome at the theater.”

Of course Trump begs to differ, saying, “Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater.”

Via Twitter as well, Brandon Victor Dixon has responded to Trump, saying:

“conversation is not harassment sir. And I appreciate Mike Pence for stopping to listen.”

  1. “The play’s the thing, wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the King.” HAMLET by William Shakespeare. Act 2, Scene 2.

    Theatre has always been a powerful vehicle to describe the human condition. It was the original expression of Freedom of Speech (known as the FIRST AMENDMENT in the United States). The First Amendment also gives people—ALL people—the right to assemble and openly express their opinions. Small wonder “King Trump” vowed to abolish it.
