Mike Pence Speaks Out About Getting Booed At Hamilton As Hollywood Reacts To Donald Trump’s Demand Of An Apology From The Cast!

Mike Pence Speaks Out About Getting Booed At Hamilton As Hollywood Reacts To Donald Trump's Demand Of An Apology From The Cast!

Even though Donald Trump is mad about it, seems like Vice President-elect Mike Pence is taking his booing in stride!

As you will remember from yesterday, Pence was booed mercilessly while taking in a Broadway showing of Hamilton on Friday night, and almost immediately after, controversy blew up when Trump could not resist tweeting about it!

But today on Fox News Sunday, Pence cleared the air regarding what he thought about the boos – and it sure sounds like the VP-elect is taking it like a politician should!

Pence said that, when the boos started, he turned and said to his daughter:

“That’s what freedom sounds like.”

Cheesy… but very true!! People are allowed to boo you, and freedom of expression is ingrained in The Constitution, regardless of what some ignorant Federal judges may believe.

Pence continued:

“I really enjoyed watching Hamilton. It was a real joy to be there. I heard a few boos. I was not offended by what was said.”

In this instance, good for you, Governor!

Of course, there is the issue of Pence being aggressively anti-LGBT, which should not be overlooked (and was at least partially the cause of his booing in the first place).

Pence is also part of a troubling ticket coming to power in this country in January, and the VP-elect added this to say about The Donald and their plans in the White House:

“I just want to reassure people that what Donald Trump said on election night, he meant. He is bringing people together… [Trump] is a man that knows his mind, he is going to surround himself with people of diverse backgrounds… and is completely focused on the people’s business. There will be a proper separation between his businesses.”

Hmm… not so sure about that last part, but, OK.

At the very least – and it sure is not much – Pence deserves a little bit of credit for taking the boos much, much more appropriately than Trump (as you will remember, below):

Oh, Donald…

Speaking of Trump… celebs around the country responded to The Donald’s feud with Hamilton, as you can see (below):

Nice!!

People are pushing back!! Love it!!

Melania Trump And 10-Year-Old Barron Trump Will NOT Move To The White House, Per Reports

Melania Trump And 10-Year-Old Barron Trump Will NOT Move To The White House, Per Reports

We already know damn well that Donald Trump has no desire to live in the White House– which is pretty ridiculous – but now we are getting word that his wife and son likely wo not move there, either.

But at least in Melania Trump‘s case, as well as for their son, Barron, there’s a good reason for choosing to stay in New York City for the time being, according to media reports breaking on Sunday morning.

The 46-year-old wife of the President-elect, and the couple’s 10-year-old son, are opting to stay in New York to minimize disruption to the child’s school and life schedule, according to a source close to Trump’s transition team.

The source spoke to the media on Sunday, saying:

“Melania is extremely close to Barron, and they have become closer during the campaign. The campaign has been difficult for Barron, and she is really hoping to keep disruption to a minimum.”

Melania will apparently travel to the White House as much as needed, but her primary focus is Barron, and his schooling.

It should also be noted that sources have continuously claimed it is Melania – and not a team of nannies or hired hands – who has raised Barron, so she appears to be extremely close to her and The Donald’s youngest son:

“Melania is very supportive of her husband and is fully on board of doing everything that’s needed as first lady… but she is really devoted to Barron.”

Of course, this wo not come without complications.

The Secret Service and the NYPD are set to REALLY beef up security at Trump Tower, with a security expert telling the New York Post:

“That building is going to become the White House of New York. The Secret Service is going to have to keep that whole area cordoned off so that some wacko ca not get close and detonate a car bomb.”

Well then!

Say what you will about The Donald not wanting to live in Washington, but this might be a good decision for Melania and Barron to stay back at home, at least for now, so life does not change too radically for the 10-year-old!

Just get ready for a LOT more traffic in Manhattan!!

United States Congressman’s 15-Year-Old Grandson Shot And Killed In Dispute Over Shoes

United States Congressman's 15-Year-Old Grandson Shot And Killed In Dispute Over Shoes

This is so unbelievably tragic, we ca not even imagine what this family is going through.

The grandson of United States Representative Danny Davis (D-IL) was shot and killed in Chicago on Friday night, apparently the tragic end result of an argument over a pair of gym shoes.

Jovan Wilson, 15, was at home with his uncle and three siblings when two teenagers – reportedly a 15-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl – entered the home and argued with the teenager about the shoes.

At that point, the other boy allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Wilson in the head, according to multiple reports – including those from Davis himself, who spoke to the media after the incident.

Rep. Davis said:

“I guess I always knew that the possibility existed that it could happen close to me. I thought it was so unfortunate, because Jovan had just reached a point, 15, his grades had improved in school, his father had just told me about how proud of him he was because he was catching on and realizing that all of his life was in front of him.”

Ugh – so unimaginably sad.

Davis continued, noting the horrible irony of the incident:

“We had counseled him about being at home, being inside the house at night and unfortunately here he was, in the house, at home, minding his own business, and some intruders would come and snuff his life away.”

Heavy.

A police spokesperson shared more details about the incident on Twitter (below), including the revelation that a person of interested has been identified:

Such a senseless and needless tragedy – over shoes?!

Congressman Davis shared more in a statement he released to the media early Saturday morning (below):

Truly tragic.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Wilson’s family, including Rep. Davis, and all of his friends and loved ones.

Federal Judge Tells Immigrants If They Don’t Support Donald Trump, ‘You Need To Go To Another Country’

Federal Judge Tells Immigrants If They Don't Support Donald Trump, 'You Need To Go To Another Country'

Just another day in Donald Trump‘s America!

At an American citizenship ceremony in San Antonio, Texas, a judge presiding over welcoming new citizens to the country is now under fire after making some questionable pro-Trump comments that went just a little too far for the new arrivals.

Related: Remember, Trump Actually Lost… BIGLY!

On Thursday night, Judge John Primomo (pictured, above) told new citizens at the ceremony some disturbing things about supporting Trump or leaving the country altogether – including this aggressive, sick quote (below):

“I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president. He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.”

Uh… excuse us?! This is how you are ringing in citizenship for new Americans??

That is flatly un-American, Judge Primomo – not to mention completely inappropriate to be told to a group of people who are there to be proud about becoming Americans!!!

Smart money tells us Judge Primomo was not saying the same thing when Barack Obama won in 2008 or 2012, but, we digress…

It sounds like Primomo just wanted a soap box to rant and rave about his random, silly thoughts, though – according to local media reports, the judge also railed against NFL players that take a knee during the national anthem, saying:

“I detest that, because you can protest things that happen in this country; you have every right to, but you do not do that by offending national symbols like the national anthem and the flag of the United States.”

Um, Judge, you should have just left it at one simple sentence: “you have every right to.”

Bam. That’s it.

Telling people that they ca not (peacefully!) protest our President, or aggressively informing them they are not supposed to protest the flag or anthem (which people have the right to do!!) is completely un-American and disturbing.

Maybe it is Primomo himself who ought to review the citizenship materials and ideals.

Simply being born here, as he was, does not appear to have instilled in him any commitment to American values and ideals, and it might be worth a review to see whether he can truly appreciate the freedoms given in this great country.

Just a thought!
