Pence: ‘I Wasn’t Offended’ By Message Of ‘Hamilton’ Cast
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Vice President-elect Mike Pence said the boos he faced at the Broadway production of “Hamilton” were “what freedom sounds like.”
Pence also didn’t criticize the show’s cast for addressing him from the stage after the play’s end Friday night, saying he wasn’t offended and understood their message.
“I did hear what was said from the stage. I can tell you I wasn’t offended by what was said.
I will leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”
Pence’s comments come after Donald Trump’s Saturday morning Twitter attacks on “Hamilton,” accusing the cast of harassing Pence.
