Donald Trump Calls 'Hamilton' Cast 'Rude,' Demands Apology for Mike Pence

Donald Trump is angry with the cast of Broadway’s Hamilton for calling out Mike Pence at a performance this weekend and now he is demanding an apology for the VP-elect.

Pence was in attendance at the Friday (November 18) show and during the curtain call, cast member Brandon Victor Dixon delivered a message on behalf of the cast, asking him to “work on behalf of all of us.”

Trump slammed the cast for “harassing” Pence in a “safe place.”

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

DO YOU THINK the cast of Hamilton “harassed” Mike Pence?

    So talking about grabbing women by the p*ssy is just “locker room talk” but a message for inclusion is harrassment and rude? Wtf?

    What did Pence, the unabashed racist actually think was going to happen when he attended a musical celebrating the talents of people of color, some of whom are gay? Did he expect a fucking red carpet?

    lol what reality is this?

    Trump has never held political office, has no government experience, he has his kids and son-in-law on his transition team (all with no political or government experience, yet have his ear the most – can you say Chris Christie??) and he looked completely overwhelemed during meetings at the white house right after the election. But, please, get your knickers in a twist over this. It’s not like you have anything else to worry about.πŸ™„

  • Jezza

    Maybe?? Who knows. Perhaps he was hoping to talk some of the actors into that conversion therapy he’s so fond of. OR maybe thought he could help pray the geyh away.πŸ™„
    Anyway πŸ–•πŸ»Prez-elect Biff Tannen.

    Trump you must first learn to apologize for your unkind and unprofessional remarks first, before you can demand for someone else to do the same.

    Thankfully Donald Trump had to realize that as President he couldn’t get everything that he wants. The cast refused to apologize showing that Trump already has lost control over the country.

  • Roger Dodger

    Trump doesn’t apologize, he has said so in interviews. He thinks he has no need to because like he says, ‘I’m never wrong’.

  • Torii Wehling

    The cast was exercising their rights as citizens, Trump! So back off,.this isn’t the board room, it’s the nation.

  • Cruizin1960

    He did not pay to be lectured to, attacked or booed. They were out of line. They could have sent him a request to speak with the cast backstage after the show. This was grandstanding and inappropriate.

  • Cruizin1960

    Hardly – just speaking to what should be common decency that is lacking in all the whiners and snowflakes.

  • Cruizin1960

    So Pence should exercise his and demand a full refund for himself and anyone with him…he went for an evening of entertainment and was most definitely not entertained.

  • lynn

    You’re an idiot! Even liberal Stevie Van Zandt said it wasn’t the time nor the place. It was rude and the theater was bullying a guest. I hope trump calls the IRS for an investigation. They would deserve any backlash.

  • lynn

    This is just as bad as if a gay man attends a church play and the performers stop and address the gay guy and ask him to ask Jesus in his heart. No difference. They were way out of line.

  • lynn

    He did apologize dumb dumb. But that wasn’t enough and that’s all trump is asking for. The VP did not do anything to deserve to be called out

  • lynn

    Shut up. I ca Wait for trump to retaliate. It will happen

    This wasn’t during the play. If an elected official can’t handle citizens exercising some free speech during a curtain call then he should find another job. He’s a special snowflake dishing out hate and injustice but unable to take a plea for justice for all. Pence is as unAmerican as you can get.

  • GroundControl500

    Trump never apologized to the disabled reporter for his disgraceful mocking of him. The fact that his campaign didn’t end right then and there says all there is to say about how disgraceful it is that anyone voted for his sorry ass.

  • GroundControl500

    Pense is the special snowflake. He dishes out hate and bigotry on a regular basis but cannot handle a polite p,ea for justice for all citizens? Really? What kind of a wuss is this guy. Hillary has stood up to 25 years of right wing attacks and false smears and she can take it with grace and aplomb.

    What a poor widdle baby he is surrounded by secret service agents.

  • GroundControl500

    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. You are ridiculous. You hope they illegally target someone for speaking their mind? Please get yourself to a doctor cause your brain has melted.

    america, please applaud for your future prez, its always so entertaining about him

  • Mrs. Freeze

    When you feel the need to call someone who doesn’t agree with you an “idiot” the point you’re trying to make here is invalid.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Why did he stay then?

  • j b

    Donald Trump is a worthless loser of an old man. Nothing is going to happen under his Presidency. There will be no retaliation from him. Trust me. Just like you will always be unemployed under a Trump Presidency.
