This is great. I like Trump’s whiny crybaby twitter response. The emperor really has no clothes at this point.


#3

Good for them! Silence equals acceptance of the upcoming batcrap crazy “administration”.


#4

tRump had to be told who Hamilton was.


#5

Trump suggests the cast was harassing Pence.

Harassing? Really? They were incredibly polite to him.


#6

Trump has demanded an apology - and come out in support of “safe spaces”.

Whatever will Breitbart say about Preznit Snowflake?


#7

How dare US citizens ask their elected officials to “to uphold American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”

Liberals are the real terrorists!


#8

If Trump comes, they can finish with an Edelweiss sing-along and So Long, Fare Well as the cast steals away one by one. See how long it takes Trump to remember the end of that movie and what role that casts him as…

I can barely see to type this, because my eyes seem to have gotten stuck in the rolled-up position. :rolling_eyes:


#10

Classy actions on the part of the Hamilton cast. Where is that clap gif?


#11

So along with George Takei’s Allegiance that makes two major Broadway musicals that have a beef with President-elect Trump’s policy proposals so far.

It’s only a matter of time before Mr. Mistoffelees addresses the “pussy grabbing” thing.

Be nice. Maybe it’s time to offer an olive branch.

He’ll be living in DC. Maybe start a gofundme to buy him a subscription to Fords Theater’s next season?


#13

“We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us.”


#14

Well put. Members of the executive branch have been treated way, way worse while trying to watch a play.


#15

Has President Obama EVEN ONCE used Twitter to publicly complain about how he was treated or demand a personal apology? Holy cannoli that orange guy is a crybaby.


#16

Nothing. Literally everything they attack the left for they’re guilty of.


#17

Yetch, mind bleach please.


#18

#19

Um, George Hamilton?

The cast also said “There’s nothing to boo here, ladies and gentlemen. We’re all here to share stories of love.”

• It must have been bizarre for Javier Muñoz, the actor playing Hamilton – an openly gay and HIV+ man – to play his role for a guy responsible for an HIV outbreak who supports conversion therapy for gay men.

• The VP elect was booed at a show about a vice-president killing the lead character.
