Donald Trump Slams ‘Hamilton’ Again, Even After Pence Says He’s “Not Offended” By Cast’s Message

After Mike Pence caught a Friday night showing of Hamilton in New York City, the cast of the unbelievably successful Broadway play delivered a message to the Vice President-elect, with hopes that he would be “inspired” by the show’s diversity and ultimate goal. The next morning, Donald Trump denounced the cast, claiming that they were “rude” to Pence, and demanded an apology. After a full day of cabinet meetings and a statement from Pence iterating that he was “not offended” by the message, Donald Trump decided to go at Hamilton once more, and requested again that they apologize to his Vice President-elect.

Such focused attention wasn’t even given to the settlement he reached in his Trump University fraud case, in which Trump agreed to pay $25 million to accusers who said unqualified teachers were employed at his fraudulent institution. To that matter, which would have been front-page material whether or not Trump had won the election, he doled out two tweets, one of which was just him announcing that he was about to say something about the settlement.

Since then, his tweets have been dominated by negative comments about Hamilton, including his most recent one–a cheap shot–which suggests that the play is “overrated.”

Something about Hamilton reminding Mike Pence to protect all of America, and not just white people, irked Donald Trump very much. So much so, that a day full of cabinet meetings and what sounds like couldn’t distract him from Brandon Dixon having the nerve to say ‘Hey, don’t forget black lives matter.’

The next four years will be interesting, won’t they?
