Even if you're not a fan of musicals, Broadway, or anything in that universe, you've surely heard of "Hamilton." It's the incredibly popular musical created by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Anyhoo, Vice President-elect Mike Pence decided -- now that he's big time -- to take in a Broadway show, "Hamilton." Unfortunately for him, he got booed upon arriving. Then, after the performance, Brandon Victor Dixon (the actor who plays Aaron Burr in the show) spoke directly to Pence from the stage after the curtain call.
“We, sir, are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” Dixon said. “We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us. All of us. 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,””
My guess is that Pence was shitting in his pants. He really probably though, "Why is this actor talking to me from the stage? I was not expecting this -- this isn't like the movies at all." Judging from the clip up above, it seemed like an incredible moment.
Pence could have acted like a man, stood there, listened to what Dixon had to say, but he pussed out and left the theater.
So the only question I have is, what in the fuck did Pence expect? If you're going to see a hip-hop Broadway musical, you have to assume the crowd is going to be fairly liberal. It's not like he was taking in a matinee of "Mein Kampf."
You should also know that Trump came to his boy's defense early this morning and demanded an apology. From who? He didn't say, he just wrote, "Apologize!"
If Trump thinks Dixon was rude, he and his boy Pence are going to have to develop a thicker skin. This is going to happen to Pence for the next four years, if not for the rest of his life. He better get used to getting called out on his shit every step of the way.
