For me it is simply a matter of freedom of speech.
If they support one group, so be it, that is their right.
If they support another, that is their right to voice it.

Was it rude...not hugely in wording, but in context perhaps a little, but not earth shattering by any means.
Pence and Trump are in the Major Leagues now, it is their elected obligation to hear the voice of the people they will govern.

I think the whole kerfuffle surrounding this event is more than the speech given deserves TBH.

I agree.

About the only conspiratorial aspect I might garner from it would be Trump's use of the term "safe space" in his following tweets.

Perhaps others, by seeing how stupid it is, might stop relying on them so much.

OK, I get that. All that means though is those who boo'd have childish minds and are haters just as certainly as the KKK are haters. Who cares about them anyway? I have no tolerance for bigots from either side of politics and both sides have adherents they should be ashamed to be associated with.

Artists have always been the first bastion to voice dissent.


Yes, being an artist is a valid excuse for being jerks and being hateful. They should be forgiven.

But you see, that speaks to the whole issue.

Pence KNEW he was going to a play where the cast invited Hillary backstage and hugged her.

Pence KNEW he was going to a play where Netanyahu was boo'd and shouted at.

That, I can agree with


But then we do need things to complain about.

not really, his masters, who also controlled trump,planned it this way. they want to create a racial divide and maybe civil war in america so they can impose their fascist agenda more easily. now trump will do his part to further divide the people because his presidency will be used to make black and other minorities feel threatened just like the white has been feeling for the last eight years. what is unfortunate, is that so many people , white,black,spanish etc always seemed to fall for it.

I hope all are aware of this black mans racist and misogynist history. Here's a tweet of his from 2012:

St. Patty's day weekend is like Christmas for black dudes who like white chicks. Happy holidays boys. @reesewaters#seasonsgreetings

Also, for the slower democrats feigning condemnation over Trumps rebuttal tweets: President Trump is well on his way to branding all his naysayers as condemning elitists and scapegoating minorities that prefer uncouth ambush tactics over substantive debate. Believe me, President Trump isn't phased by a gaggle of urban dance majors. Same game he destroyed the media with. Someday y'all will get it, but, by then you'll be paying for your own healthcare.

Sayings are not always correct.

A person should be able to pay $500 to $2,000 for a ticket to entertainment and not be given a political lecture. In a polite civilized world that is.

In this case I think it was more for attention than anything else. Free publicity and they get to see their faces on TV and on the Internet. Without that, I'd never have heard of them. After all actors just pretend to be for the things they espouse, otherwise they would all be paid the same. The richer they become, the more phony they become as they join the 1% with hands out saying me, me, me, while at the same time pretending to be for the socialist ideal.

I understand. He idolizes him the way so many idolize political figures. The power is like crack for some, and these people (who are just and only people) become something else. Almost like religious figures

Same as how people thought because Trump is rich he must be some kind of genius that also simultaneously wants to make their lives better

Life is funny

Pence would admire Cheney - wouldn't he? He will be our new Dick Cheney

Number of Hamilton stars haven't voted in YEARS

Voting is a privilege and a responsibility.

So, to the cast of "Hamilton" please vote before you grandstand.

Hilarious that this bothered people so much that they had to go check

Plenty of people didn't vote in this election (and others) - and that includes Republicans. People who for one reason or another just couldn't bring themselves to vote for someone, or even against someone

Do conservatives that didn't vote get to complain? Are you in charge of who is allowed to speak and who isn't? Who is?

I've not voted in the past myself

We're all still citizens - right?

:-)

Grandstanding? This gets more interesting by the minute

So, here's what the people have to say:




As the play ended, the actor who played Aaron Burr, Brandon Victor Dixon, acknowledged that Mr. Pence was in the audience, thanked him for attending and added, “We hope you will hear us out.”

“We, sir — we — 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,” he said. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us.”



The audience gave a standing ovation during the play at the line, “Immigrants, we get the job done,” one theatergoer, Christy Colburn, wrote on Twitter.

She added: “Crowd went NUTS at King George’s lines ‘when people say they hate you’ & ‘do you know how hard it is to lead?’ He had to stop the song.”

The statement that Mr. Dixon read was written by the show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, its director, Thomas Kail, and the lead producer, Jeffrey Seller, with input from cast members, Mr. Seller said.

“We had to ask ourselves, how do we cope with this?” Mr. Seller said. “Our cast could barely go on stage the day after the election. The election was painful and crushing to all of us here. We all struggled with what was the appropriate and respectful and proper response. We are honored that Mr. Pence attended the show, and we had to use this opportunity to express our feelings.”


________________________________________


And then this:


Mr. Seller said that there was some discussion about whether it was appropriate to inject a political statement into the night, and that those involved decided to wait until the end of the performance. He said no cast members had skipped the performance to protest Mr. Pence’s appearance.

Mr. Trump has not seen “Hamilton” or inquired about tickets, Mr. Seller said, adding that the president-elect would be “welcomed to attend.”


Trump has - of course - twittered his special feelings about dissing the VP To Be into the cold dark night


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!


What do you think?




WHEW! THE HAMILTON ACTOR WHO ATTACKED MIKE PENCE JUST GOT TAKEN DOWN TODAY

No sense cherry picking just one of these grand quotes.
