‘The cast of Hamilton was very rude … Apologize!’
For two days, on Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016, Trump sounded off on Twitter about the message that the cast of “Hamilton” read to Mike Pence, who saw the musical on Friday night.
“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 said on the morning of Nov. 19. “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!”
That night, he tweeted and then deleted a remark about cast member Brandon Victor Dixon, who read the prepared message to Pence. “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 wrote.
The next morning, he again called for an apology. “The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior,” he tweeted. Pence, for his part, said he “wasn’t offended” by the cast’s message.
