The President-Elect of the United States of America is Upset With the Cast of Hamilton

Yesterday, Mike Pence decided to relax after a long week of appointing white nationalists to important cabinet posts in the White House by catching a Broadway show. The audience was less than thrilled as illustrated by this video clip:

After the show, the cast took the opportunity to make a statement to Mike Pence:

Vice-president elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at Hamilton: An American Musical. We really do. We, sir, are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of ALL of us. All of us. We truly thank you for sharing this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men and women of different colors, creeds, and orientations.

This morning, Trump had this reaction:

How’s that new Presidential Trump thing working out? It’s very alarming that in Trump’s mind, people asking for their newly elected leaders to respect diversity, is harassment. A President demanding an apology from a Broadway cast exercising their freedom of speech is beyond alarming. We truly have elected a racist, fascist, internet troll to guide our country for the next four years. We’re fucked.
