Doesn't He Let Anything Go By?

So now Trump is in a war of words with the cast of Hamilton. And this is what the lead actor said to Pence:

"We, sir, 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," said Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, the nation's third vice president, as his fellow actors joined hands. "We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us." 

And from our 45th president and part-time critic of the performing arts:

"The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior," he tweeted.

And you, Mike Pence:

But Pence told Fox News that "Hamilton" was an "incredible production" involving a very talented cast. On whether he thought an apology was necessary, he said: "I'll leave it to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it."

He's certainly classier than his boss.

When prompted by Trump for an apology, Dixon responded on Twitter that "conversation is not harassment sir" and added that he appreciated Pence stopping to listen.

That seems like a good spot to end this. I'm half expecting Trump to go on Twitter and criticize me for this post.


  1. The way to deal with a thin-skinned bully is to ridicule him. Mockery will be his undoing. He can't handle it. Has anyone ever heard him make a self-effacing joke? The last joke I heard him tell was at the Al Smith dinner, and it was about his wife, not him. Mock the thin-skinned bully every chance you get.

  2. I would say not to because it might seriously affect his health. But, his doctor said he's the healthiest person ever to become president. So, let the barbs fly!
