Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore is telling President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence that they "haven't seen anything yet" after the billionaire businessman posted a tweet over the weekend calling on the "Hamilton" cast to apologize for their "very rude" lecture to "Pencey" on Saturday.
Ha! Rude? You & Pencey haven't seen anything yet. Millions of us are going 2 be everywhere. U will not get away w/… https://t.co/bGMsjA30sJ— Michael Moore (@Michael Moore)1479655257.0
Pence's visit to the sold-out Broadway musical was somewhat rocky. When he arrived, he was greeted by a blend of boos and applause, and as he made his way out of the theater after the show, he was treated to an on-stage lecture from one of the production's cast members:
Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at “Hamilton: An American Musical.”
We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights, sir. We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us.
While the Indiana governor didn't immediately respond to the confrontation, Trump, who, according to Moore, will likely be impeached before his term is up, quickly took to Twitter to object to actor Brandon Dixon's comments.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1479563790.0
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1479640954.0
Pence, for his part, struck an entirely different tone during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. The incoming vice president told host John Dickerson he "wasn't offended" by the boos and the lecture, but instead said, "That’s what freedom sounds like."
In an interview Monday, Dixon responded to Trump, telling the president-elect he and the cast have"nothing to apologize for."
