The nation has been in an absolute tizzy since the infamous performance of “Hamilton” where Mike Pence was dissed from the stage by the cast.


His boss, President-elect Donald Trump, first demanded that the cast apologize to Pence. He then issued another tweet this morning at 5:22 a.m. (does that man ever sleep?), again demanding an apology.

Twitter was en fuego on Saturday with the trending hashtag #BoycottHamilton.


Even rocker Stevie Van Zandt, a member of über-liberal Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band, called out the cast for bullying Pence. Van Zandt’s politics, like Springsteen’s, are the polar opposite of Pence’s views, yet he found the “Hamilton” cast behavior to be “a terrible precedent.” He even requested that playwright Lin-Manuel Miranda issue an apology to Pence.

And Mike Pence?

He was asked about the incident by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. He was gracious, magnanimous, and his demeanor was. . . dare I say it? Presidential.


Give “Hamiltongate” a day or two, and all this will blow over as another scandal or outrage — contrived or not — will draw fresh attention to new battles of political gamesmanship. I am convinced of one thing, however: for all his warts, Donald Trump picked the right man to serve as his Vice President.

  • Mike says:

    For this Burr in Pence’s blanket to take him to task before he ever serves a minute in his newly elected office would be like Pence going to his dressing room before the performance and asking him not to suck on stage.

  • Johnny says:

    As the aggrieved party, Vice-President-Elect Pence behaved like a proper gentleman.

    As an outsider who was not there, President-Elect Trump rightly called the actor(s) on their rudeness and impropriety.

    And as Mike, above, so correctly pointed out, this is happening before either man takes office – just wait until January.
    “Weeping and gnashing of teeth” indeed…
