More Than a Distraction
Did you hear about VP-Elect Mike Pence’s visit to the Broadway show Hamilton? The cast had a message for Pence and President-Elect Trump about inclusion that they shared after the performance. You can view it here.
Trump did not enjoy the message and fired back on Twitter, stating that the cast of Hamilton harassed Pence.
Evening talk show host, Seth Meyers, is arguing that Trump is using this event as a distraction for what has become a messy transition to the White House.
“President-elect Donald Trump prompted new questions this weekend about his foreign business ties to potential conflicts of interests — questions Trump responded to by picking a fight with the cast of a Broadway musical,” said Meyers on Monday’s Late Night.
Meyers pointed out that New Yorkers never would have bet Hamilton, an award winning show, could get even more publicity, but Trump was able to make it happen.Tags: Broadway, distraction, Donald Trump, Hamilton, LGBT, LGBT Rights, LGBTQ, LGBTQ rights, Mike Pence, musical, New York, New York City, Seth Meyers
