Vice President-elect Mike Pence was on Fox News Sunday this morning, and Chris Wallace had to end the interview by asking about “Hamilton-gate.”
Pence attended the hit Broadway show Hamilton on Friday. He received a mixed reception from the audience that included some booing, and during the curtain call the cast had a message for him saying, “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
Donald Trump was upset and tweeted that the cast should apologize, but Pence told Wallace he loved the show and “wasn’t offended by what was said.”
He acknowledged the booing mixed in with the cheering when he arrived, but said his reaction at the time was to tell his daughter, “That’s what freedom sounds like,”
Pence insisted that Trump was serious about being a president for all Americans.

Wallace asked him if he, like Trump, thinks the cast should apologize. Pence said he’ll leave that to others while saying again how much he enjoyed the show.
