Was ‘Hamilton’ Outrage Just A Smokescreen For Trump To Bury His Fraud Case?


You may not have noticed but Donald Trump quietly settled a fraud case against him for $25 million over the weekend, saying that he didn’t have time to fight it because he had to focus on the needs of the country…

However, it seems he did have time to hit out at the some theater-goers booing his running-mate, Mike Pence.  

Sadly, it seems that his outrage over Hamilton and the fact that the cast asked Pence to “uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us” was able to overshadow Trump quietly paying off a fraud case.

Donald Trump used his Twitter account (which he has once-again been allowed to control himself) to call out the “terrible behavior” of the Hamilton cast…

But what did they actually say?

Brandon Victor Dixon, the actor who played Vice President Aaron Burr in the production thanked Mr. Pence for attending, before saying:

“We hope you will hear us out. We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf all of us. 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. We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”

Doesn’t sound too ‘terrible’ to us. In fact, we’d say that it sounds like a pretty reasonable request, and one that any politician should surely seek to be true to anyway. But no, for Donald Trump, asking a politician to do his job for all of the people in America was actually “very rude.”

Still, it all helped divert attention from Trump paying millions to avoid having to go to court in a fraud case. Oh, and while we’re on the subject, whatever happened to Trump’s tax returns?

Just wondering…
