Mike Pence 'Wasn't Offended' By 'Hamilton' Cast Message

Mike Pence is speaking out about the poignant message he received from the cast and crew of Hamilton during a performance this weekend.

The 57-year-old Vice President-elect was leaving the theater when actor Brandon Victor Dixon asked him to stay a moment so he could read a message from the cast.

Pence was asked about the incident by Fox News Sunday and said that he “really enjoyed the show.”

“I did hear what was said from the stage, and I can tell you I wasn’t offended by what was said. I’ll leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it,” Pence said, which you can watch below. “I do want to say that the basic element, the center of that message is one I want to address. I know this is a very disappointing time for people who did not see their candidate win in this national election. I know this is a very anxious time for some people.”

Meanwhile, President-elect Donald Trump continues to call for an apology.

    I think this was all a planned distraction from the real issues Trump is dealing with (settling the lawsuit which he said he’d never do) and it worked.
    Fuck them both!
