VIDEO: Idina Menzel Shades Donald Trump, Sends Love to 'Hamilton' Cast at AMAs 2016!

Idina Menzel threw some shade at President-elect Donald Trump and sent some love to the cast of Hamilton while presenting at the 2016 American Music Awards on Sunday (November 20) at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.

The Tony-winning actress was on stage alongside Shark Tank‘s Mark Cuban when she decided to be a little political.

Idina asked Mark, a major supporter of Hillary Clinton, what he is looking forward to next year and he said, “Not being invited to the inauguration is a good start.”

“I know how you feel,” Idina replied with a laugh. “Us unsafe, scary theater people won’t be invited to the inauguration either. I love you Hamilton!”

Idina is of course referring to the drama that went down after Mike Pence attended a performance of the Broadway musical this weekend and Trump slammed the cast for taking the moment to deliver a message to the VP-elect.

Also pictured inside at the awards show: Milla Jovovich, Rebecca Romijn, Garcelle Beauvais, and Cheryl Burke.

FYI: Idina is wearing a Thai Nguyen Atelier dress, Brian Atwood shoes, a Judith Leiber clutch, and Yeprem jewels. Milla is wearing an Elie Saab dress, Prada shoes, and jewelry by Swarovski. Rebecca is wearing a Rita Vinieris gown and Noudar earrings.

    And hypothetically, if a conservative cast had called out Hillary after a performance, saying they were scared that their sincerely held beliefs were going to be under attack by her administration, would these celebrities be sending love to them too..?

    So hypocritical.

    Bottom line – what that cast did was rude and inappropriate, regardless of the candidate they called out. Far from inviting honest dialog, it was pressure tactics from those who held power in the moment, meant to embarrass the recipient through a one-sided diatribe. Shameful.

    Mike pence didn’t even think that is inappropriate. Why are you whining? Your glass heart is so fragile.

    While the modus operandi of most online discourse today is to name-call and attempt to induce emotional battles, I feel it is fruitless to honest discourse and won’t go there.

    First, my statement is what is known in discourse as an ‘argument’, not ‘whining’. So let me address your counter-argument, while filtering out the name-calling (“whining” and “fragile glass heart” comments). So as to your counter-argument (“Mike Pence didn’t even think that is inappropriate”):

    First of all, even if he was totally fine with the whole thing, his opinion proves nothing as to my argument, which is: Discourse is best when both sides are allowed to speak. Like we are doing right now, so I assume you agree with me. If on the other hand, our exchange was me implying things about you or making demands of you with no opportunity for you to respond, I doubt you would think it polite or appropriate. Which is my point.

    But further, Mr. Pence was not in total agreement with what they did. You need to check your facts. In his recorded statement he said that he was not offended by the argument they made (I agree with him – nothing wrong with asking a VP-elect to strive to represent all Americans per se), but he said he “would leave it to others to determine if that was the appropriate setting to do it” – a clear allusion to my point, that the setting was a use of power and presumption in a one-sided moment. E.g. the emphatic repeat of “ALL Americans”, which implied a pre-conceived conclusion (Trump/Pence don’t want to represent all Americans), while the setting allows Mr. Pence no opportunity to address/correct the grievance.

    So in bringing up Mike Pence, I believe you’ve help to further establish my point as to the inappropriateness/rudeness of how this was handled.
    Thanks for the discourse.
