As we reported earlier, when Vice President-elect Mike Pence went to see the play Hamilton last night, the cast concluded by sending him a message. “We have a message for you sir and we hope you will hear us out…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, 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, sir. But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us. All of us” actor Brandon Dixon said to a round of applause.
Pence’s night at the theater was book-ended with boos from the audience as he entered, and the above speech at the end.
It makes you wonder; how would people be reacting if the same thing happened to Barack Obama? Well, as we said earlier, we don’t even have to ponder that – because it would never happen. In fact, they weren’t just anti-Trump – they’re pro-Leftist. Let us not forget how they treated Hillary Clinton, after all.
Back in October, some actors from the play changed lyrics from the play to make them pro-Hillary and anti-Trump. This was at a benefit/fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, of course.
THIS is Liberal "DIVERSITY"

And that was hardly all! Back in May it was reported that “On July 12, the cast will put on a matinee showing in honor of Clinton — “Hamilton: An American Musical with special guest Hillary Rodham Clinton” — with tickets starting at $2,700 for a general seat and reaching as high as $100,000 for an “event chair” entry, which includes “two Premium Seats and Wrap Party with Hillary and other special guests, and Invitation to the Democratic National Convention,” according to Hillary Clinton’s official website. For $10,000, buyers will score a premium seat that includes a photo reception with Clinton; and for the $33,400 host ticket, ticketholders will sit in a premium seat as well as enjoy a “wrap party with Hillary and other special guests” after the show.”
It’s obvious who they were in the tank for. Their message to Pence wasn’t in good faith – it was an attempt to score political points.
Too bad. They lost – and it’s all thanks to Alexander Hamilton for creating the electoral college in the first place.
