The Hill reports:
The Indiana governor attended the Broadway hit on Friday. When he was leaving, one of the actors asked for him to stay to listen to a statement from the cast.
“Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at ‘Hamilton: An American Musical,’ ” actor Brandon Victor Dixon said onstage.
“We 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, sir. We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”
On Saturday, Trump called or the cast of Hamilton to apologize.
“The Theater must always be a safe and special place,” Trump tweeted. “The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”
The president-elect doubled down on his call for an apology on Sunday.
Pence on Sunday, though, said he wasn’t offended by the message and reassured the American people that Trump is preparing to “be the president of all of the people.”
Moore, who correctly predicted Trump’s election win, said after his victory that he thinks the president-elect will either resign or be impeached before his term is up.
Moore said Trump has “no ideology except the ideology of Donald J. Trump.”
“And when you have a narcissist like that, who’s so narcissistic where it’s all about him, he will, maybe unintentionally, break laws,” Moore said. “He will break laws because he’s only thinking about what’s best for him.”
