On Saturday morning, President-elect Donald Trump sent out several tweets defending Vice President-elect Mike Pence after Pence’s trip to a Broadway show made headlines.
On Friday, Pence attended a performance of “Hamilton” in New York City. When he went to his seat he was met with a chorus of boos and some cheers. Throughout the show, audience members reacted to lines in the dialogue and songs that aligned with their perception of Trump and Pence.
Once the show was over, the cast and crew delivered a message to Pence as he was walking out the door.
As people began to boo Pence again, a member of the cast told them to stop booing and then plead with Pence to be a VP for all people.
“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 wrote on Twitter.
“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!”
