Mike Pence 'Wasn't Offended' By Cast Of Hamilton, Then Waffles On If He's Owed Apology

If you're not offended then you're not due an apology.
Views:

Vice President-elect Mike Pence told Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace that he wasn't offended by the cast of the play "Hamilton: An American Musical", after they delivered him a personal message, but then weaseled out of saying if he's owed an apology by the cast.

That's what Gov. Pence has done throughout the presidential campaign.

Pence makes believe dissenting Americans are enjoying their "freedoms," but then refuses to share his real thoughts on the issue and simply passrs the buck to his henchmen surrogates, who no doubt will attack the issue for him.

Fox News Sunday's host Chris Wallace read off Trump's tweets that called for the Hamilton cast to apologize to him and asked, "Governor, what did you think of the cast's comments, and did you consider it rude?"

Pence lauded the play and then said, "You know, when we arrived, we heard -- we heard a few boos, we heard some cheers. And I nudged my kids and reminded them that's what freedom sounds like."

He continued, "And -- but at the end, you know, I did hear what was said from the stage, and 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."

If the vice president-elect wasn't offended then why not just say he's not owed an apology by the cast?

I think we know why.

It's Pence's passive-aggressive reaction to Americans enjoying their "freedoms."
