VIDEO: Mike Pence Attends 'Hamilton,' Cast Sends Him an Important Message After the Show

Vice President-elect Mike Pence attended a performance of the Broadway musical Hamilton on Friday night (November 18) and his presence was addressed by the cast during the curtain call.

The Republican politician received a mixture of boos and cheers throughout the evening while inside the theater and when he tried to leave during the curtain call, actor Brandon Victor Dixon asked him to stay a moment so he could read a message from the cast.

“We sir, 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,” Brandon said.

“We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us,” he added. “This is one American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds and origins.”

    I think he was very «inspired» by those who booed him. Such a «warm» welcome only helps more people to realize how pathetic, miserable, brainwashed and stupid so-called minorities, liberals and progressives are.

  • devvv

    Did he get lost or was he unaware this was a play about an immigrant with a largely minority cast where the lead is played by an HIV pos gay man? Considering the hate he and DJT have spewed about people like the cast and creator, I’m surprised he even wanted to be in the same room as them.

  • Bob

    Bravo! That dude Brandon delivered as classy and thoughtful a message as one can to a person who has only looked out for his own up to this point. I’ve seen many reactions on the right complaining it was rude and disgusting for the audience to boo Pence….yah, a man who wants to take half the cast to “conversion therapy” after the show. Same difference. Sigh.

  • Koos

    he killed the cat?

  • Shelby

    Seriously tHey are the only ones focusing on race. Shut the hell up. Obey the law and you will be protected. Regardless of race. So old and obnoxious these liberals are. Making huge dramatic deals out of nothing.

  • Shelby

    I’m sure he doesn’t want to take any of the cast anywhere. I do not understand why progressives are so intolerant. You cannot dictate opinions. And that’s all this is. Your opinion vs his.

  • Shelby

    No hate spewed by him. definitely the other way around. CAnt even go see a show. smh

  • Roscoe

    So intolerant, disrespectful, hateful…This my way or the highway approach by the crybabies booing and disrupting the show is very shameful. You sat back and watched a sickly, career criminal under FBI investigation steal the nomination from Sanders and said nothing as she derailed her own campaign nearly every chance she got. If you wanted to win, you should have protested and rioted as much when there was a chance for HER to be replaced. The crying should have begun when you decided to do nothing about her. But even if you gave in or fought against her in favor of Sanders or ANYONE else, guess who threw caution and sanity to the wind? YOUR OWN PARTY. Riot and protest them unless you want to continue losing and crying.

  • Kittywilderness

    It’s not “origins” in the speech, it’s “orientations”. Which is really quite important when you consider Pence thinks that about half that cast should have conversion therapy, including the HIV Pos gay leading man.

  • GroundControl500

    Intolerant racist sexist ignorant bigots need to be booed.

    And yet despite EVIDENCE to the contrary you can’t quit the hateful and ignorant lies about Hillary Clinton.

    You’re Exhibit One of low information voter.

  • GroundControl500

    SMH at your unpatriotic insanity.

    Racism, bigotry in any form, sexism, hate, ignorance at top levels of government MUST be addressed. These things cannot and will not be tolerated. Get your head out of your ass.

    You may not be able to dictate opinions but you can enforce rights.

  • GroundControl500

    Pence’s level of unAmerican bigotry IS hate.

  • GroundControl500

    Pence and his backward, ignorant ideas & policies about minorities, women, you name it, are as UN-American as you can get.

    And, if you knew anything about America you would know protest is as American as apple pie.

  • GroundControl500

    😂😂😂 You are so effing naive. Or just plain stupid.

  • Shelby

    What right are you afraid of losing? And what gives you THE RIGHT to be intolerant? Hypocrisy!!!

  • Shelby

    Pence hasn’t hurt a sole. Maybe he hurt your feelings with his opinion but that’s life. Toughen up. You don’t need his approval to be happy in your own skin. He’s not here to make you feel good about yourself. That’s not his job.

  • Shelby

    ANYONE who admires Hillary is naive. She’s all talk. Obnoxiously smug. I would’ve been so annoyed had she won. But not enough to act like a spoiled child.

  • Shelby

    If you knew anything about America you would know that. people accept the election results even if they hurt your little feelings. Grow up and get a backbone.

    If they get the economy rolling they will have done a great job. Social issues are not all that.

  • John Dow

    You just proved that you know nothing about America.

    By the way, about those two letters UN: UN General Assembly’s Third Committee passed a resolution condemning attempts to glorify Nazism ideology (racism, xenophobia, extremism, ethnocentrism, nationalism, supremacism, genocide etc.) and denial of German Nazi war crimes (including the Jewish Holocaust). Only three countries voted against that resolution: Ukraine, Canada and….. the US.

  • Shelby

    What is wrong with progressives? Are they so insecure that they need the president to affirm them? Wth? I couldn’t care less if they approve of me or my opinions. Just defend the country and grow the economy. I am happy in my own skin no matter what pence thinks of me. There will always be people who disagree with u. It’s ok u will be fine.

  • Shelby

    Well, You told ME! ;-). Oh but u hurt my poor little feelings! That won’t be tolerated! Lol

  • Cheyenne

    If you think your tangerine messiah is going to defend the country and grow the economy, there’s some beachfront property in Kansas I’ll sell to you cheap. By this time next year when your unemployment benefits run out and your food stamps are cut, all you Trumpsuckers will be scrounging for scraps in the garbage cans. And we’ll be laughing our progressive asses off at you.

  • Shelby

    I’m happy to try a change from the tax the corporations politicians who only hurt the economy. Corporations create jobs. The government does not.

    Keep throwing insults. Your true colors of hatred and intolerance are showing.

    Hypocrisy!!!!

    Oh and I am employed. But many are not. Way too many people have too much times on their hands. Protesting and such. ;)

  • Lily

    Sweetheart…the entire campaign was spewed with hatred. And Trump is not adding people who it appears will temper that. Anyone who is such a religious zealot for only his religion is not someone who should be in office. JMHO.

  • Lily

    Give me a break. HRC’s “crimes” were nothing compared to Trump’s. But she’s a woman right, so that is something you can’t tolerate. Bernie lost. Period. He’s not bitter but his supporters are. But…they love Bernie so much that when he asked to support Hillary because he knew how bad Trump would be…you all thumbed your noses at him. So now who is the hypocrite?

  • Shelby

    The campaign was built on repealing Obamacare. Illegal immigration. And bringing jobs back. Where’s the hatred? In your imagination maybe? Because he is a rich white man?

  • devvv

    He signed a law that allowed business to turn away gay people. He “can’t even go to a show” when he literally made it possible for LGBT people to not go in stores, restaurants, etc. Please stop the delusion.

  • Roscoe

    Right, Hillary loves women so much. Even when she defended a child rapist she knew was guilty and falsified evidence for him and was recorded laughing about it afterwards? How about when she took money from countries like Saudi Arabia that view women as property? Or when she stuck by Slick Willie after all the accusations of rape and settlement payments to his accusers and his frequent flyer miles on the Lolita Express and trips to Epstein’s island?

    And oh how easily one forgets why the original DNC head was forced to step down. Followed by the equally corrupt Donna Brazille who was caught more than once supplying questions from CNN to Hillary’s campaign via Podesta during the nomination process? Almost forgot about the wikileaks revelation that they had “leverage” against Sanders to keep him in line. And what about the coverage bragging about Hillary having an overwhelming majority of super delegates even before nomination votes were cast?

    Speaking of crimes, why did Chelsea and Obama have email aliases within Hillary’s illegal email system? Why did Obama lie about when he knew of her illegal set up? Why was Hillary communicating classified information to her daughter about Benghazi? Why were hundreds of thousands of emails from her server on Weiner’s laptop? When did he get security clearance to have access to them? Why did Hillary delete 30,000 emails after she got a subpoena? Why did the Clintons keep over 90% of the money meant for Haiti after the earthquake? Why was Chelsea begging via email that her parents do more for Haiti? Why did their foundation pay for Chelsea’s wedding? Why did the Clintons amass a fortune of hundreds of millions when they have produced no product or service to warrant that income? Why hasn’t she produced transcripts of her speeches that paid her hundreds of thousands each? Why have they not refuted the accusations that she was paid to steer policy while Secretary of State? Why was she paid merely to take meetings while in office? Why have they not even attempted to refute the veracity of the wikileaks’ reporting and/or provide evidence to the contrary? How are they not in jail for participating in Iran Contra in Arkansas?

    Guess what these questions and accusations have nothing to do with? HER gender. Try attacking the facts instead of me. Anything other than that approach reeks of desperation coupled with a lack of substance…and/or scruples. And you can attack Trump all day, but he, of course, has no history of selling the country out to the highest bidder. And besides, he won and your party that put forth one of the most corrupt, visibly infirm politicians in history LOST.

  • Phil the Donahue

    No president has created the kind of sh t storm this one has. Swastikas in parks? Going after actors who are Jewish. Your candidate didn’t have to be a racist to get votes but he did. And Hillary won, you lost the popular vote. More people dislike u….duh

  • Phil the Donahue

    His state is full of aids and syphilus due to his policies look it up.

  • Phil the Donahue

    And no, that’s not because there are gay people. I love them, they are cooler than conservative weirdos sniffing panties in closets any day. Your disease riddled, drug infested state is due to the gross policies of that moron.

  • Fight Bigotry Bot

    Pence doesn’t have opinions, he has anti-gay and anti-women policies. Pence sponsored a bill that would have forced women to embalm and have a funeral after every miscarriage, because a fetus is a life. Pence sponsored a bill that would have sent every gay person requesting a marriage license to jail. He believes homosexuality is a perversion, and him attending a play on broadway with so many gay actors makes him a hypocrite, not less of a bigot.

  • Fight Bigotry Bot

    Everyone has the right to be treated like an American, regardless of their sexuality.

  • Fight Bigotry Bot

    I hope you don’t have a miscarriage in the next 10 years. Under Pence’s bills, you could be sent to jail.

  • Roscoe

    Your lies didn’t work and still don’t. You can’t specify one racist word from his mouth. Hillary, the media, Hollyweird, Obama, and the DNC spread these lies so they and the gullible public are to blame for the unrest and despair that we see.

    It is miraculous that you ignore that the outgoing president publicly encouraged illegal voters to participate and the governor of VA gave 60,000 people the right to vote outside of law. There are reports that as many as 8 million illegal votes were cast. The truth is that Trump likely won by a landslide. And even with your candidate’s cheating, she still lost. You would have been all for the electoral college if your candidate won. But I’m seriously not hurt that you and anyone else doesn’t like me. You have exposed yourselves as petulant children so your disapproval is actually a compliment.

  • Roger Dodger

    Let me guess, you don’t and didn’t live in Indiana with him as Govenor?
    He hurt alot of “souls” who live there.

  • Roger Dodger

    Oh child, you are so, so clueless.

  • Robert Herazi

    These stage hippies are a complete joke. #TrumpTrain

  • Roscoe

    Disagreeing with someone of a differing opinion is not intolerance. Throwing hissy fits, disowning friends and family, beating up people, and threatening assassination over an election you willfully lost IS.

    There is no evidence to the contrary about Hillary’s crimes against this country and others. “We came, we saw, he died!” followed by hysterical laughter by your candidate after lynching an African leader in the street who had done nothing to us. Maybe you want to blame the Russians for that too?

    Continue thinking that you have the right to criminal, disrespectful, and anti-free speech behavior because your argument lost. I have provided a heap of evidence of HER corruption above. Call it a lie as much as you want, but you can’t refute it with factual evidence. The accused refuse to refute it themselves, so how possibly could you? Don’t worry – we will turn this country around without you and we won’t attempt to deny you constitutional rights for disagreeing with us.

  • John Dow

    US government under Democrats has sponsored ISIS, so what’s your point? Pens is right about homosexuality – it’s a mental disorder and this has been proven many times. Homosexuality is as «normal» as pedophilia.

  • TruthToBeTold

    This is proof propaganda works. Manipulated Brainwashed Morons.

  • Gina

    For anyone watching the show that night, this was either the best experience of their life or the worst lol.

  • Gina

    He was probably trying get some good publicity or something & it backfired on his ass.

  • TruthToBeTold

    You naive manipulated fool.

  • Gina

    He wanted to repeal Obamacare but now he’s backtracking and planning on keeping many components of it. Imagine that.

  • Gina

    Intolerance, disrespect & hate is what Pence & his boy Trump are all about. This is the only language they understand.

  • Shelby

    Not many. Just two. Preexisting and kids stay on parents til 26.

    That’s doable without killing people with ridiculous premiums.

  • Shelby

    See. IM OKAy with this. Nobody should be forced to do anything. If someone starts their own business they should be free to make their own decisions on who they want to serve. Like designers for example ;). There are plenty other businesses that will serve gay people. That’s the beauty of competition
