President-elect Trump demands an apology
Last night, Vice President-elect Mike Pence went to see Hamilton: An American Musical in New York City. As Mr. Pence was leaving after the show, he was called back to listen to the insipid whining of the Hamilton cast.
The level of self-inflated hubris in this spectacle is mind-boggling; the actor actually prompted the audience to tweet and share the lecture he gave Mr. Pence because whatever fell from the lips of the cast must be earth-shatteringly important. Or something.
Pence, the vice presidential elect and a Republican, was also booed as he attended the show Friday night in New York.
The cast had a message for Pence after the show as he was walking out saying, “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.”
Some audience members took to twitter to report that the show was paused several times as the crowd booed Pence at certain lines of the show.
Cast member Brandon Dixon delivered the statement on behalf of the cast encouraging the audience to tweet and record the message.
Dixon added, “We truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.”
Dixon continued to say the show was “told by a diverse group of men, women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”
The remarks were met with cheers from the audience in response.

Proud of this shameful spectacle, “lead producer Jeffrey Seller said he hopes Pence would share the show’s message of empathy saying, “I hope that maybe it inspires him to feel for those not like him.”
We don’t even have to wonder how this would be received if it were a conservative or Tea Party cast screeching out a message of “empathy” to Obama . . . because it would never happen. Somewhere along the way, the progressive left has completely abandoned common decency, good manners, and any ability to function in civil society.
President-elect Trump was not pleased.
If anyone on the left is still capable of rational thought, here’s a nugget of wisdom from me to you: Climb down off your sandcastle pedestal and stop acting like precious, insulated, emotionally-needy, psychologically-stunted children with your temper tantrums, stompy feet, and perpetual demands for attention.
This type of condescending grandstanding is why Americans despise you. For all your talk of privilege, I find it interesting that the only people in this country walking around with a puffed-up, false sense of superiority and privilege is the progressive left. You seem to honestly believe that anyone in America still cares about your feelings or your constant, continual, and increasingly obnoxious daily outpourings of witless moralizing and incomprehensible demands for respect (incomprehensible because you offer none).
You spout every idea that flits through your head as if anyone anywhere outside of your privileged little bubble cares, but the truth is that we don’t want to be treated to your every inchoate attempt at thought, and we certainly don’t care about your limited, myopic worldview. It’s time for you to grow up and stop behaving in embarrassing ways that show only how narrowly, how incredibly shallowly you see America and the world.DONATE
