It seems that the people who think it is alright to insult or lecture Mike Pence, have a lot to learn.
The Broadway play, ‘Hamilton’ was seen by VP elect Mike Pence and his wife. After the show had ended and Pence was exiting, actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, had a speech prepared by some of the writers to confront Pence at the curtain call.
The speech, was in fact, short.
“Thank you for joining us at Hamilton: An American Musical. 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. We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and work on behalf of ALL of us.”
Pence, never a man to use words to insult people, left the theater with a wave and smile. He said he enjoyed the play.
Trump, on the other hand, demanded an apology. After all, there was some unnecessary booing of President Elect Mike Pence’s appearance at the musical.
My thoughts are with the content of the speech. Why would any sound minded American think that all Americans would not be treated equally and be protected under President Elect Trump and Vice President Elect Pence? They do not have to be reminded to work on behalf of ALL Americans.
I believe there must be a ‘dumbing down’ of Americans who do not feel safe under men who have gone out of their way to say that ALL Americans would benefit from a Trump presidency.
What does it actually take to make America wake up and realize that their newly elected President and Vice President are not the enemy? They, in fact, would be helping Americans.
Well, people got to Tweeting about this latest little maneuver to insult those who would serve our nation with dignity. Now, there is a boycott of the play ‘Hamilton’ among those conservatives who back the leaders they voted into office.
Of course, the ticket holding Democrats will still be going to the play.
