Lin-Manuel Miranda Reacts to 'Hamilton' Cast Message to Mike Pence

Lin-Manuel Miranda is speaking out about the message the Hamilton cast had for VP-elect Mike Pence.

Although the 36-year-old Hamilton creator wasn’t at the performance, he stands behind what the cast had to say.

“I really believe that theater is one of the last places that everyone should feel welcome. That includes Trump, that includes Pence,” he began.

Lin-Manuel added, “I think theater is a thing that can unite which is why we took the opportunity to, I think very respectfully, say, ‘We hope you work on behalf of all of us.’”

VIDEO: Donald Trump Outlines Priorities for First 100 Days - Watch!

Donald Trump has taken to social media to release his specific agenda for his first 100 days in office.

In a video uploaded to his transition team’s Facebook page on Monday night (November 21), the president-elect outlined his plans to create new jobs, get rid of regulations on energy production, renegotiate trade agreements (like the Trans-Pacific Partnership), and investigate any “abuses of visa programs.”

“Whether it’s producing steel, building cars, or curing disease, I want the next generation of production and innovation to happen right here, on our great homeland: America – creating wealth and jobs for American workers,” Donald says in the video.

“These are just a few of the steps we will take to reform Washington and rebuild our middle class,” he added. “I will provide more updates in the coming days, as we work together to make America great again for everyone, and I mean everyone.”

The video marks one of the few instances the public has heard from Donald since his election two weeks ago. He has opted for communicating via Twitter and other forms of social media instead of holding a traditional news conference.

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.

Donald Trump Demands 'Hamilton' Apology Again for Mike Pence, Calls the Show 'Highly-Overrated'

Donald Trump is still going off about the cast of Hamilton reading a poignant letter to Vice President-elect Mike Pence at a performance this weekend.

The 70-year-old President-elect took to Twitter once again to demand an apology.

“The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior,” Trump tweeted.

He continued with a since-deleted tweet, “Very rude and insulting of Hamilton cast member to treat our great future V.P. Mike Pence to a theater lecture. Couldn’t even memorize lines!”

Trump also continues to dislike his portrayal on Saturday Night Live.

“I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show – nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?” he wrote.

Celebs Urge People Not to Ignore Trump University Settlement

Celebrities have been speaking out all day about several news stories surrounding Donald Trump, but one thing they don’t want you to ignore is that the President elect just paid $25 million to settle a lawsuit for fraud.

Trump was sued by over 6,000 victims of his fraudulent university and instead of taking the case to court, he settled with the plaintiffs.

“I settled the Trump University lawsuit for a small fraction of the potential award because as President I have to focus on our country,” Trump tweeted. “The ONLY bad thing about winning the Presidency is that I did not have the time to go through a long but winning trial on Trump U. Too bad!”

People are speculating that the whole situation surrounding Mike Pence‘s visit to Broadway’s Hamilton was done as a way to district people from realizing what happened with the lawsuit, so celebs are speaking up to remind their fans.
