President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter this weekend to slam the wildly popular Broadway musical, Hamilton, but vice president-elect Mike Pence didn't seem to share the same sentiment.
Pence attended a performance of the Tony-award winning production on Friday night, where he was called out by Brandon V. Dixon -- who portrays America's first treasury secretary and the third vice president, Alexander Hamilton -- at the end of the show in a statement that was written by the cast and the show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and producer Jeffrey Seller, according to Broadway.com.
“We, sir, 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,” Dixon declared after thanking the vice president-elect for attending. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
“I really enjoyed watching Hamilton,” Pence told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace during a pre-taped appearance. “It was a real joy to be there. I heard a few boos. I wasn’t offended by what was said.”
Trump, however, responded differently to the statement and expressed his disapproval on Twitter. “Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing,” he tweeted on Saturday morning. “This should not happen!”
“The theater must always be a safe and special place,” he continued in another post. “The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016
Trump also tweeted out his disapproval of Alec Baldwin making his return to Saturday Night Live to portray the president-elect. This was Baldwin's first time impersonating Trump since he beat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.
"I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday Night Live last night," Trump tweeted in response to the episode. "It is a totally one-sided, biased show -- nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?"

Baldwin quickly responded to Trump's post with a series of tweets. "Equal time? Election is over. There is no more equal time. Now you try to be Pres + people respond. That's pretty much it," the 56-year-old actor wrote. "You know what I would do if I were Prez? I'd be focused on how to improve the lives of AS MANY AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE."
"I'd be focused on improving our reputation abroad, including actually fighting for freedom and not just oil," he added. "I would make every effort to retrain Americans so to create jobs. One way you make America great again is to put it back to work. ...I would make appointments that encouraged people, not generate fear and doubt."
Baldwin concluded his Twitter rant: "@realDonaldTrump, I could go on. You want more advice, call me. I'll be at SNL."
