Governor Mike Pence of Indiana

NEW YORK – President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter and blasted the cast of a play who he says was “rude” to his vice president, who was in the audience.

Friday night, Vice President-elect Mike Pence attended the Broadway play ‘Hamilton’ and was met with some boos and cheers as he arrived. After the show, one of the actors, Brandon Dixon, delivered the following statement to Pence on behalf of the show:

Trump got wind of the incident, and tweeted some words and demanded an apology.

“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!” Trump steamed.

“Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing,” Trump also said. “This should not happen!”

Pence had no immediate reaction to the incident.

    Take a break cast members – its Transformation day – besides you just lost all credibility to most Americans (legal) by the way ESPN has lost 325,000 customers because of the california squatterback that hates America . Remember – the customer is alway right.

    I guess I grew up in a time when people had respect for each other. Yes the Hamilton group has a right to express themselves. In my opinion, it was disrespectable to boo him and challenge him in that format. And I do understand others have a right to their opinion and will counter back. I choose to be done with this discussion since it is getting too disrespectable for me and I choose not to engage in discussion that is based on negativity.

    These people are just a pimple on my all American azz. When the swamp is drained I will take a nice hot bath – cleanse the pimple and apply medication and it will heal – Just like America will after we expose these satanic new world order scum. Just deport yourself ! It will save you a lifetime of misery living in a Free – anti globalist society. In other words watch your back comrade or get flushed down the sewer.

    Trump said going to drain swamp,but his team is nothing but family and a bunch of old goverment.You need to think progressive not turning back time.All these people are very wealthy and the want to control everything and it seems it is time for them too get even.With that attitude 4 years and they will be done.People will turn on them in droves,after Trump people destroy our country in 4 years.Then you will see how good of a president Obama was when most of the US have no insurance and the rates have gone through roof.Rich come out smelling like a rose riding on the backs of middle class and poor.Just wait and see Americans have very short attention span and it showed the world this also.Don’t whine truth hurts.

    If all your comments are directed towards me, I am neither a democrat or a republican. I am just an ordinary citizen who happens to be interested in the direction this country is headed. I watch all facets of the news because when I see and hear the “News” I like to research both sides and form my own opinion. I have my own set of values that I live my life by. Others have theirs. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. just don’t squash my rights to get yours!!!

      Fair enough Carly, but do not expect to express your opinion and not have others counter with their own.
      Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean that they are attempting to “squash” your opinion.
      If you think that all of these comments are directed at you, you are mistaken.
      There is & will continue to be great controversy over Donald Trump.

      Carly, I didn’t intend to squash your comment. I understand that some people don’t take criticism well. I saw Mr. Pence on tv this morning. He talked about a lot of things and one of them was the Hamilton experience. He said he was not offended by what happened. I liked that. He knows that not everyone in this country agrees with him or Mr. Trump. He said he also knows that there are people who are worried about the direction our country will be headed in a Trump administration. He seems like a reasonable man and one who can take criticism unlike his boss. The cast of Hamilton didn’t scream at him, call him ‘liar’, throw things, or refuse to act because he was there. They expressed their fear about the future. This is America. You have the right to do that as you well know. So, you need to develop a thicker skin (as do a lot of those people who voted Republican) and get ready for criticism. Most Democrats have learned that the past 8 years.

      Hey Dumb Ass-Can’t you get it through your thick skull, you lost. Everything you wish for was voted down by smarter people than you. She wouldn’t even have gotten the popular vote if it wasn’t for California and no one cares what that state wants. You got your ass handed to you and deservedly so. Even your two local puppets are disfunctional. There is nothing they can achieve without republicans giving it to them. Keep crying, for the next four years it makes no difference.

      It is called respect. Democrats are like a stupid kid, that no matter what, just can’t remember or learn. Trump is the soon to be commander in chief, and Pence will be second in command. A bunch of pussy actors have no place to talk sh*t to anyone.

    Wow the audience at Hamilton booed so loud that the news didn’t hear about Trump paying $25 Million to settle his fake university lawsuit.
    This new administration is morally & ethically bankrupt.

    Get used to the comments Trumpkins.
    You elected an idiot and people will say things whether you like it or not.
    Because he was “elected” it doesn’t mean that the greater percentage of the people that voted for Clinton are just rolling over.
    Far from it.

    Bodacious, research what sessions did as attorney general to two kkk members who murdered a 19 year old black man. He sought the and got the death penalty for Henry Francis Hays and he was executed in 1997; he also got a 7 million dollar settltment against the kkk. I guess that’s pretty racist.

      Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III

      If Sessions’s racism killed his chance on the Federal Bench, it certainly didn’t kill his political career, and a decade later, he was elected to the Senate, where he spent the next two decades fighting civil rights progress.
      Among other positions, Sessions opposed the Violence Against Women Act, the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” and the expansion of anti-hate legislation to include sexual orientation.

      He fought the removal of the Confederate flag from public buildings, immigration reform, and criminal justice reform.

      Sessions’s opposition to voting rights — which as attorney general he would be in charge of protecting — dates back to his days as U.S. attorney in Alabama, when he wrongly prosecuted a group of black activists for voter fraud.
      In 2013, he praised the Supreme Court’s decision to gut the Voting Rights Act, denying its impact on black voters, even as the immediate impact in his own state was that officials tried to close 31 DMV offices, in majority black counties.

      No doubt about it, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III is still a racist and also a homophobe & misogynist.

        You just can’t admit you are a loser and always have been. The only way Hitlary won the popular was because of California and no one gives a shit about what that communist state wants. You lost the General and the local. Even you two local puppets will be disfunctional unless the Republicans take pity on them and throw them a bone. The next four years belong to Trump and the Conservatives and we are going to run you and any like you out of our country. You freakin loser.

      You lost. You lost it all. The only reason Hitlary won the popular vote was California and no one cares about that communist state. For the next four year you have nothing. Even your local puppets will mean nothing. They won’t get nothing unless the Republicans let them. You are nothing and will stay nothing for at least the next four years. You are a loser all the way.

    Bodacious you miss the point. This Hamilton group lectures mike pence on diversity and the Hamilton group discriminates against whites at the same time. i have no problem being diverse and respecting people who are different from me, but it has to go both ways. And by the way research what Jeff Sessions did later in his career as attorney general against the klan. Look at the whole picture and the form an opinion. And I don’t recall there being so much hate and destruction in the streets when he was elected.

    This coming from a fine group of DIVERSE individuals who have discriminated against whites to be allowed in their group of diverse individuals. Isn’t it interesting how people who claim to be loving and tolerant don’t have to practice what they preach. Hypocrites!!! They get what they deserve. We are not going to sit back and be preached to anymore.

      Did you read anything except this excerpt Carly? Mr. Pence listened to what was said and I applaud him for listening. Unfortunately, the Donald doesn’t listen and goes ballistic whenever anyone allegedly questions him or his policies. He better get used to criticism because he is going to get a lot of it. Speaking of hypocrites, I am sure glad no right wingers ever criticized President Obama because doing that would not be loving or tolerant. Have you read about the Donald’s choice for Attorney General? He is so tolerant that even Ronald Reagan’s administration denied him a federal judgeship because of his racial views.
