On Friday Nov. 18, Vice President-elect Mike Pence was in New York city attending the hit broadway show “Hamilton” when things suddenly took a turn for the awkward. As Pence entered the theatre, audible boos filled the venue. Some audience members cheered as he took his seat, but they were outnumbered by the disappointed cries.
Donald Trump did not take kindly to the reaction of the theatre-goers. On Saturday morning, President-elect Trump tweeted several statements defending his veep.
“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!”
Today, Trump once again took to Twitter to air his grievances regarding Friday night’s incident, since it became apparent that the cast of “Hamilton” has no intention to apologize for what happened. Adding insult to injury over the weekend, the cast of “Saturday Night Live” didn’t waste any time making fun of President-elect Trump. In last night’s episode of “SNL,” Alec Baldwin reprised his role as Trump and depicted the president as entering full-on panic mode once he realizes that he has to actually govern the country.
The real president-elect Donald Trump didn’t take kindly to Baldwin’s sketch.
First, Trump demanded that the cast of “Hamilton” apologize and declared that hit broadway show, “overrated.”
Trump then directed his criticism to Alec Baldwin and “SNL.”
Baldwin didn’t miss a beat and responded to Trump immediately.
