I'm glad Hamilton crowd booed Mike Pence. Because people paying $1000 a ticket know what's best for us.— Luwanda (@LuwandaJenkins) November 19, 2016
Too much has been made of this incident.Before picking cabinets Trump should bring them to Hamilton to see if the cast approves.— Luwanda (@LuwandaJenkins) November 19, 2016
Much to the delight of President Trump, which I will explain later.
The "Hamilton" lecture arose because the Loony Left takes itself too seriously. The assumption that Pence needs to be lectured on American history is unbelievably wrong.
And yet he listened.
An actor had something to say. Said it. Pence heard.
As the Post pointed out, when do the actors start listening?
From the Post editorial:
By the way, this backfired. Big time. The biggest beneficiary in this nontroversy is President Trump. He tweeted about it, and the media talked all weekend about "Hamilton" and President Trump and dissent and thin skin and all.In Sunday’s Post, Michael Goodwin asked liberals to consider that they might be “ignorant” about the lives of Trump voters — that they wrongly “swallowed, hook, line and sinker” the “caricature of them the Democratic Party and the national liberal media created.”Liberals dominate the national media (and most local media, too) — as well as Hollywood, Broadway and Silicon Valley. Red America has no choice but to listen to Blue America all the time.And, sorry, it’s Blue America that routinely screams “shut up” to voices it doesn’t want to hear. That’s the essence of political correctness, and not just on campus: Recall, for example, the PC condemnation of the incredibly sensitive and nuanced “red” film, “American Sniper.”When you can’t understand how your fellow Americans could make “that man” our next president, maybe it’s time you stopped assuming it hasn’t heard you, and started listening yourselves.
You know what the commentators didn't talk about on Sunday?
President Trump paying $25 million to settle the Trump University case a few hours before "Hamilton."
In fact, The Donald's reaction to "Hamilton" knocked Trump University off the front page of the New York Times.
Well-played, President Trump.
The next eight years just may be the best time of my life.
