After a lengthy day of meetings with potential administration appointees, President-elect Donald Trump briefly appeared to revive his complaints about the Broadway hit “Hamilton” on Twitter.
On Saturday evening, a tweet was posted on Trump’s account that said it was “very rude and insulting of Hamilton cast member to treat our great future V.P. Mike Pence to a theater lecture.” The comment echoed several messages posted on Trump’s Twitter feed earlier in the day.
But after about half an hour, the post was deleted. An email asking staff why the tweet was taken down did not immediately get a response.
Pence attended the blockbuster show Friday night. After the curtain call, he got an earful from star Brandon Victor Dixon, who spoke from the stage, saying the multiracial and multicultural cast is “alarmed and anxious” about the new administration.
