Watch the cast of ‘Hamilton’ School Mike Pence

From the boos when he entered the theater to the lecture he received at the end of this exciting two-hour history lesson, Friday night was an education for the future Vice-President. Check out the tweet and video below.

Or check out a transcript of the speech:

The tweet reads:

a few more moments. There’s nothing to boo, ladies and gentlemen. There’s nothing to boo. We’re all here sharing a story of love. We have a message for you sir, we hope that you will hear us out.

And I encourage everybody to pull out your phones and tweet and post because this message needs to be spread far and wide.

Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us here at Hamilton: An American Musical. We really do.

We, sir, and 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. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us.

Trump’s response: that the cast was rude and should apologize. We won’t link to it here, but considering America’s history when it comes to politicians enjoying a night out at the theater, things could certainly have been worse for the Vice-President Elect.
