Pence on 'Hamilton' Lecture: I Told My Daughter 'That's What Freedom Sounds Like'
Vice President-elect Mike Pence discussed being lectured-to while watching the Broadway musical 'Hamilton'.
Following a performance of "Hamilton", actor Brandon Dixon verbally noted Pence's presence in the Richard Rodgers Theater and spoke openly about the importance of "tolerance".
"We wanted to go see 'Hamilton', it's an extraordinary production, and frankly we really enjoyed being there," Pence told Sean Hannity, adding that he and his family walked in to a mix of boos and cheers.
"I nudged my daughter when we got to our seats and said 'remember, Charlotte, that's what freedom sounds like'. I'll leave to others whether it was appropriate for one of the actors to address me from the stage at the end."
Pence also talked about President-elect Donald Trump's meeting in Bedminster, N.J. with former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.), often a critic of the New York businessman's campaign.
"Honestly, I think these are two people... who both said some tough things along the way. But, what I saw in that room... was two men who were focused on the country-- completely focused on what's in the best interest of the United States and America standing tall in the world and reviving our economy at home. I was frankly very impressed," Pence said.
