Lefty Rocker Steven Van Zandt Defends Pence: Lin Manuel Miranda and Hamilton Cast Should Apologize

“He was their guest. You protect your guest. Don’t embarrass them.”

Good for Steven Van Zandt for speaking out on this.  He was a huge supporter of Obama and Hillary, and is no fan of Trump and Pence, but he recognizes bullying when he sees it.

DRUDGE REPORT: HAMILTON
It is not the message (they are entitled to have their concerns) but form of the delivery that was the problem. The high 5ing of cast during audience boos during the show is also not reflected here…
American Power Blog: Hamilton cast boos Mike Pence

Pence was greeted by boos from audience members when he attended “Hamilton” in New York City on Friday night. As Pence exited, a cast member delivered a spoken message to Pence directly. President-elect Trump has tweeted repeatedly about the incident this weekend, but Pence told Fox News Sunday he told his family the boos were “what freedom sounds like.”

“I did hear what was said from the stage and I could tell you, I wasn’t offended by what was said,” Pence said on Fox. “I’ll leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it.”

He continued, “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.”
