Gay icon and forever the Divine Miss M, Bette Midler, laid into VP-elect Mike Pence after he was booed at Broadway musical, Hamilton.
As you likely heard, the future VP was booed as he took his seat at the hip-hop musical in New York last week. Pence has expressed support for so-called gay conversion therapy in the past, among a long list of other homophobic stances. Bette wrote on Twitter:
“On the other hand, re Pence being booed at #Hamilton: Anyone who says “yay” to gay conversion DESERVES to be booed at a Broadway musical.”
Donald Trump criticised Hamilton and the cast, claiming they “harassed” his VP pick and bitched that Brandon Dixon, who plays vice-president Aaron Burr, addressed Pence directly.
Enraged Trump supporters have declared a boycott on the Broadway hit. Yeah, good luck with that as it is sold-out for the next two years.
Democrats (and the ever-growing faction of Trump haters) have pointed out that whole episode is a distraction from the recent lawsuit Trump settled out of court for his Trump University fraud. He paid $25 million (which he will apparently write off his taxes) and admitted no wrong-doing.
Yet another reason to be mad today…
