On Fox News Sunday, VP-elect Mike Pence took a much different tone on the “Hamilton” controversy than his boss, the president-elect.
The story of the weekend is Donald Trump’s Twitter feud with the actors of the “Hamilton” musical, after they delivered VP-elect Mike Pence – who was in attendance – a message that they are “alarmed and anxious” about a Trump administration.
While Trump continued to tweet about the incident this morning, the message’s recipient was more measured on Fox News Sunday.
When asked about the message by host Chris Wallace, Pence said he “really enjoyed” the show and that the boos he received is what democracy sounds like.
He added that President-elect Trump hopes to be a president for all Americans, and that Trump is starting by reaching out to some people who disagreed with him on the campaign trail.
Pence dodged on Wallace’s follow-up, which was whether or not he wanted an apology from the cast like Trump does.
