Transcript for Mike Pence Responds to 'Hamilton' Incident
We're seeing two sides of Donald Trump this weekend. The president to be putting together his team, and the public figure prone to angry tweets. Trump demanding an apology for this message sent from the stage to Mike pence. Who was in the audience of "Hamilton." Ron Claiborne on what pence himself is saying. Reporter: Tonight, vice president-elect Mike pence responding for the first time to the mixed reception at that Hamilton performance. Some booing as he took his seat. You know, when we arrived, we heard a few boos, we heard some cheers. And I nudged my kids and reminded them that's what freedom sounds like. Reporter: The hit Broadway show tells the story of the founding fathers played by a cast of mostly African-American actors. Pence says he enjoyed the show and did stay for that tense moment afterwards. We, sir, we are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us. But we truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us. I can tell you I wasn't offended by what was said. I'll leave to others whether that was the appropriate venue to say it. Reporter: Pence's boss with a different take. In a blizzard of tweets Donald Trump calling the cast "Rude," accusing them of "Harassing" pence, and saying they should "Immediately apologize." And today outside his New Jersey home -- Are you still upset about "Hamilton"? They were very inappropriate. Reporter: The "New York daily news" spoke to the actor who delivered those remarks. It was important that we did this. And I'm so glad that he stayed and he listened and I truly appreciate him doing that. Reporter: The incident satirized on "Saturday night live." Heard you went to see "Hamilton." How was that? It was good. I got a free lecture. Heard they booed you. Absolutely. Reporter: Trump taking issue with that too, tweeting, "I watched parts of @nbcsnl Saturday night live last night. It is a totally one-sided, biased show, nothing funny at all." Reviews of what took place, mixed. I don't think that anything the cast said was disrespectful. We spent a lot of money to come and see "Hamilton" and we really don't want to hear political statements. Reporter: Some trump supporters are taking to Twitter to calling for a boycott of "Hamilton." But the show in New York City is sold out almost to the end of next year, and also in Chicago. The show opening in Los Angeles later next year. Dan? Ron, thank you.
