On November 18, Vice President-Elect Mike Pence went to see a production of Hamilton: An American Musical. As we previously reported, Brandon V. Dixon (Aaron Burr) stepped out of the final lineup to deliver a speech to Pence, asking for him to listen to the voices and dreams of all Americans since he will be in a position of power to affect change.""
While President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his opinions about the "rude" statements made that evening, Pence has come out with his own "mannered approach."
“I did hear what was said from the stage, and I can tell you I wasn’t offended by what was said. I’ll leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it,” Pence said Sunday morning in an appearance on Fox News Sunday.
Dixon had prepared the speech after the Secret Service motorcade tweeted that Pence would be attending the acclaimed musical earlier that evening.
Pence assures everyone that governing the people is exactly what the Trump administration wants to do.
“I do want to say that the basic element, the center of that message is one I want to address. I know this is a very disappointing time for people who did not see their candidate win in this national election. I know this is a very anxious time for some people. I just want to reassure people that what President-Elect Donald Trump said on election night, he absolutely meant from the bottom of his heart. He is preparing to be the president of all of the people of the United States of America."
“I just want to reassure every American that in the days ahead, I’m very confident they’re going to see President-Elect Donald Trump be a president for all the people. We embrace that principle, and we’re going to work hard to make that principle every day that we serve.”
Even though Pence seems to have taken the high road in this scenario, Trump is still feeling the sting on behalf of his running mate. This morning (November 20), the President-Elect tweeted another demand for an apology -- this time before 4am.""
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior
