Mike Pence handled his lecturing at the hands of the ‘Hamilton’ cast in stride, yesterday. The man is true class.
From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
Vice President Elect Mike Pence provided a much needed de-escalation on Sunday morning (even as Trump continued to troll the left) when he responded to the political lecture he received on Friday night from the cast of the Broadway show Hamilton which urged the Indiana governor to uphold the country’s values in a personal message after a show, and speaking to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday he said he “wasn’t offended.”
After the Hamilton statement, Trump called for the cast of Hamilton to apologize in a tweet, however Pence took the high road: “I did hear what was said from the stage and I can tell you I wasn’t offended by what was said,” Pence said adding, “I’ll leave it to others whether that was the appropriate to say it.”
Pence continued by addressing the central element of the message delivered to him after the performance.
“I know this is a very disappointing time for people that did not see their candidate win in this national election. I know that this is a very anxious time for some people,” Pence said. “And 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.”
“We embrace that principle,” Pence said.
Finally, Pence offered praise for the sold-out show: “Hamilton is just an incredible production and incredibly talented people. It was a real joy to be there,” Pence said.
Pence noted when he arrived at the show, he heard a few boos and some cheers. “And I nudged my kids and reminded them, that’s what freedom sounds like,” Pence said.
