Mike Pence gets booed by the audience while attending "Hamilton." Donald Trump blames cast, demands apology.

As you can hear this is the reaction of audience members, and done of their own accord.

In fact the curtains are closed and the show has not yet started.

However thin skinned Donald Trump thought that this was the fault of the cast members and sent off this tweet in response.

Blaming the cast for the actions of the audience, before a show even starts?

Overreact much?

Actually the cast showed remarkable restraint, and at the end of the show the lead actor Brandon Victor Dixon had this message for Mike Pence: 

“We have a guest in the audience this evening. Vice President-elect Pence I see you walking out, but I hope you will hear us just a few more moments. There’s nothing to boo here ladies and gentlemen. We have a message for you sir. We hope that you will hear us out. I encourage everyone to pull out your phones and tweet because this message needs to be spread far and wide. 

Vice President-elect Pence we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here 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, our planet, out children, our parents or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope that 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 in this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men, women of different colors, creeds and orientations and we truly hope that you heard our message sir, because you all represent all of us."

Not sure how that gets translated into being rude in the eyes of Donald Trump, but if this is how he responds to everything I think our first new war will be starting less than a week after his inauguration.

    And just as BO calms boo-ers at his speeches/rallies, the cast calmed the audience. But of course this is ignored.

      And, it is never done by Mr. Trump, not ever and that is what was the start of all this highly vocal animosity. His doing and his alone.

    Such a bigly vocabulary, our “wonderful” future VP, someone should send trump a thesaurus, might come off sounding like an adult for a change.

    The first war will begin on inauguration day, when he spends his time tweeting about the “paid” protestors.

      Trump is having nightmares about protesters. Because he and the media will do everything they can to ignore and hide protests from the public we must all be active on the internet.

      The media built him and now they want us to believe he won't destroy America while he is making them billions and billions of dollars.

      Get off the news - regular and cable. They are making millions off Trump and he helps them promote himself! He always has and the media has fallen in step - constantly building him up.

      And, now they are pushing Trump to be a normal guy and saying his appointments are sweethearts and have no bad records. Screw them in spreading their false claims!

      Thank God for Rachel Maddow and Lawrence McDonnell on MSNBC. Bet The Donald will try to get rid of them once he is in office - in some manner. Sincerely hope he has neither killed/murdered!

      He has already said he'd quiet the media that was anti him. Legally he's not suppose to be able to do it - but, we'll see. Don't trust the jerk as far as I can throw him!

      I hate to break it to you but MSNBC is part of the cable news that you are encouraging everyone to "get off of".

      Either commit to thinking for yourself and absolve yourself of ALL of it or spend your time with only the "like-minded" media which you seem to be implying we all do here.

      Just say no to all of it, Rachel and LOD are just as complicit in this problem as are the rest of the channels because they refused to see reality as it was happening and now are trying to walk it back after disaster happened.

    Trump needs to apologize to President Obama for all of the disrespect and racism he lashed out at him, and the lied he told about him almost his entire terms in office.

      Exactly!!! It is OK for him to bully people, including our President, and NEVER say he is sorry that he was out of line. But, one little bit of "nasty" against him or any of "his people" and he is off and running and demanding an apology.

      And, I am still waiting for him to ask his supporters to pull it back and NO LONGER promote violence among his people directed at anyone who might have a different POV than his. His behavior and that of his supporters is THE reason anyone is demonstrating against him now. He started it and HE is the one who need to stop it.

      Trump is the worst asshole this country will have to put up for - - - ? Hopefully, he'll so blatantly break a law that he will be impeached before the first year has been finished!

      The thought of continually seeing his fat, white face constantly on TV is already old and he's not even potus! JHC!

      He craves the constant coverage and revels in it! And, the media follows right in step.

      Fuck, Donald Trump! He respects no one except his family members and himself!

      We are in major trouble! Get ready - we are doomed and there will be another war outside of our country as well as across our nation!

      This man has not even been inaugurated yet and you are already falling into a hole of depression, doom and gloom and weird character exclamations in your comments?

      A lot can happen in the next 70 days and I'm not talking about an electoral change of mind, but perhaps this man will not be inaugurated and things will fall apart.

      I feel for you people that are so distraught already, just see your therapist, up your meds or start drinking.

      The end of the world is not here yet. Lots of folks in 2000 were feeling this very same way and yet even after 8 years of BushCheney the world did not end.

      This kind of hyperbole is a self-fulfilling prophecy and perhaps you all need to just chill until the worst actually happens?

    So yes, this is a thing: #BoycottHamilton. You know, because the audience exercised its First Amendment right of free speech and booed our vice president-elect, Mike Pence, who, by the way, has also been booed at a baseball game in his home state.

    So let’s boycott Indiana too, conservatives.

    This boycott is rather silly as has been pointed out on that selfsame Twitter.

    Actor/comedian and Twitter wit John Fugelsang scores an excellent point when he tweets,

  15. They're blaming the CAST because the AUDIENCE boo'd him?

    Yeah, this is the fucking Trump administration.

    No one should apologize. NO ONE.

    The cast should ABSOLUTELY NOT APOLOGIZE!

    The speech made was courteous and appropriate. Nothing to apologize there.

    Perhaps Pence should apologize for walking out while the cast was talking to him.

  16. Trump demands an apology but never apologizes. He has not apologized to President Obama for his Bircher nonsense to women for threatening to grab their pussy for making fun of the disabled and I'm sure many other things. The media gives trump a pass yet he demands an apology. This is an article about conservatives demanding apologies omfg http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/conservatives-hamilton-cast-apologize

    Trump Is Still Meeting With Business Partners After Winning The Election

    “It looks to us that he’s clearly not able to maintain a blind trust and still keep the company under his ownership and, frankly, control,” said Jordan Libowitz, communications director for the ethics watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. “We really think that the best thing he can do is sell the company outside of the family and place the money from the sale into an actual blind trust.”

    REDDING, Calif. - A Shasta High School student handed out 'deportation letters' to students of many different ethnicities, according to Jim Cloney the Shasta High School Unified School District Superintendent.

    Just a day after Donald Trump was announced president-elect a student handed out 'deportation letters'.
