Regardless of what you think of him, Pence should be able to attend a play without being booed (happened to him while he was there) and without a political agenda...just as he should be able to grab a bite to eat with friends and family without being harassed. I agree with Trump on this issue. I'm sure that, had Obama attended a play and something similar happened, he would be appalled.


or don't speak nonsense and you won't be flamed?

It just makes me cringe when it comes from the POTUS.

Not as famous as actors/actresses, athletes or musicians but that's exactly why they won the election.


Watch out guys we have an hipster lord here, Hates all mainstream. Teach me b kool?

fun fact: musicians actors and athletes are human too, and can also be veterans/police/military personal if they so choose. highly doubt most in those fields (veterans/police/military) would turn down the chance at providing for their entire family and themselves for the rest of their lives with the money to be made in said industries. To hold that against humans is silly. Blame the way we've constructed our society around capitalism, a good thing that has produced the very technological era we live in today. Get off your high horse, MysticGon. Clearly you only look to put others down in attempts to boosting your own ego and self satisfactions. Good for you, it's just totally see through. Nobody gives a fuck you don't care about mainstream, the reality is there are plenty of talented musicians, actors, and athletes who do help their communities far more than the junkies that I know and watched fail out of school go into the military.

>talks about acting noble
>speaks about our military without addressing the many issues present in it just like corruption and greed that you would find present in these actors and mainstream society.
>also going to war and fighting in a war when you know it's wrong is not noble, which our military has and will do. Seeing as we're human and will make mistakes. So I repeat stop bullshitting us and acting like you know what reality is kid. You clearly fucking don't. I've been in the military and it's not a bunch of justice-fueled robocops there. It's a bunch of addicts and drop outs trying to get a second chance.

So what's your point?

Oh, you wall-o-texted me in a separate post...

So um, you got a lot on your mind there... All I can say is this time around people in most states weren't interested in endorsements from people with personal chefs and drivers, rolling around in cars that cost more than their houses. Sure, the irony is people in the majority of states voted for someone that fits that description but he was also one of the few that spoke their language. That's to say most people don't think or speak in PR.

Once again, it seems like Trump is against a right, that we all have, called The First Amendment. It's ok for him to talk nasty to other people, but, God forbid, when someone speaks their mind about him it's met with something along the line with 'You can't say that to me'. What a hypocrite.

I suppose heckling the PotUS during a State of the Union is acceptable to you.



WTF are you talking about?

All I'm saying is I don't pay money to watch a play, concert, movie. for them to shove their political views down my throat.

The safe space part was a joke.. Trump doesn't need safe spaces.. he was calling the actors weak/pussies... for attacking him at that time.. inappropriate time for it.. hes a customer and they are the service provider.. should be fired for treating a customer that way.. i thought the sarcasm was pretty thick trump only uses twitter to troll

Yes you fucking do. Stories (whether they be told through theatre, film or song) are inherently driven by their themes. These themes may ve about bettering oneself, helping those around you or really any message that the creator(s) feel like communicating. And it really is not that hard to trace those themes back to politics most of the time. In fact the vast majority of movies nowadays have some underlying political theme. Granted, you may not personally like having political themes in the media you consume, and that's okay, but may I remind you that we are talking about a play that is about a fucking politician. If you don't want to hear about politics at the theatre, that's your choice, but if you do that while going to see a play that is very transparently political then you have nobody to blame but yourself.

Your missing the most important part.. Those people aren't there for their politics.. they are there to do a job.. to pay their bills.. to entertain an audience that paid money to see them... now they don't have to be their just like he doesn't, but since they are and they are feeding their kids with money he paid to see the show.. at the very least its extremely unprofessional. and at best its callous and the OPPOSITE of TOLERANT... the golden value of the left..heh

Ah yes, the very peak of intolerance: politely addressing issues that are on everyone's mind. The horror.

How exactly did they "insult" Pence? Did you even see the video of what was said? The guy was as polite as you can get.



"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, sir. We hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and work on behalf of all of us."


translation: We as Americans are anxious that you, an outsider will work as VP.
meaning: you're not a f'ing American, but please try and act like one.


also:


"Vice President-elect Pence, we welcome you and we truly thank you for joining us at 'Hamilton: An American Musical,' " actor Brandon Victor Dixon said onstage.

note how he had to explain to Pence that it was an American musical - as if Pence was an outsider, a foreigner new to America.


First of all , Pence is American, born in Columbus, Indiana, so why would they address him as an outsider? What I get from that is that he is addressing him as one of the same, a fellow American, which is why he said 'our American values'.

Also, Hamilton: An American Musical is the full name of the musical play. He wasn't explaining to Pence that it was an American musical, just stating the full name of it there.

The man will be second in command to one of the most powerful nations in the world starting January 2017. Can't think of a better way to give the middle finger to the liberals who detest him.
