On Saturday morning, President-elect Donald Trump, who is just two months away from his inauguration, woke up with a pressing concern on his mind.
No, it wasn’t about the violence being carried out in his name, nor did it concern how to deliver his election policies amid a wave of protests across America against some of his most controversial pledges, such as building a wall across the U.S. border with Mexico and deporting millions of immigrants or registering Muslims.
What got him worked up was the fact that Mike Pence was booed by the audience during a performance of “Hamilton” on Friday, and that the cast took time to deliver a personal message to the Vice President-elect after the show.
The actors and actresses politely implored him to represent all Americans, not just the white Christian straight males, and to uphold the American values that forged this nation.
“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” said the cast.
Trump, of course, interpreted this call to behave like a reasonable non-bigoted adult as an attack on his vice-president, and reacted like the spoiled brat he truly is, lashing out on Twitter at the cast:
Model and entrepreneur Chrissy Teigen, wife of music icon John Legend, vented her frustration in a tweet that perfectly nailed how the vast majority of the American people feels about the situation.
Brilliant! Teigen just put her finger on the fact that this is a stunt to distract the world from Trump’s tacit admission of guilt in the Trump University fraud suit. $25 million dollars is quite a lot of money to pay out for a man who claims he did nothing wrong. Once again, Trump is exploiting the media and gaslighting the American people to disguise the fact that he’s nothing but a greedy con-man preparing to extort the nation like he did the poor students of Trump University.
And Teigen wasn’t the only one to remark on the hypocrisy of Trump’s tantrum:
