Conservative pundits and politicians took to Twitter Saturday to defend Vice President-elect Mike Pence after the cast of the Broadway musical Hamilton addressed him in a statement after a performance he attended Friday night.
While most notably, President-elect Donald Trump defended Pence on Twitter and demanded an apology from the cast, he was not the only one to publicly take Pence’s side.
The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!

The arrogance and hostility of the Hamilton cast to the Vice President elect ( a guest at the theater) is a reminder the left still fights.

Hamilton cast & lib Broadway patrons displayed their tolerance for diversity by intolerantly booing Mike Pence out of theater.

I wish the Hamilton cast had understood Hamilton more. VP-elect Pence deserves an apology. https://t.co/ePjTjRGqRV

“I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. For me as a Christian.”
Was he booed on Broadway his 1st term?

Could you imagine what would happen if Obama went to a show and was booed and harassed like VP Pence? Would be racist uprising by left.
