Mike Pence’s “Hamilton” scandal is in full force and his boss is demanding an apology, but Jimmy Kimmel has a list of people that President-Elect Donald Trump should probably apologize to first.
In a tweet a few hours later, Trump again called for an apology. “The cast and producers of ‘Hamilton,’ which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior,” he wrote.
Trump even insulted the cast for reading a piece of paper scribbled with the speech about unity and diversity that the actor who plays Aaron Burr gave to the Vice President-Elect. “Very rude and insulting of ‘Hamilton’ cast member to treat our great future V.P. Mike Pence to theater lecture. Couldn’t even memorize lines!” Trump wrote in a tweet that has now been deleted.
Kimmel played clips of Pence on two Sunday morning shows talking about how he didn’t think it was rude and he wasn’t offended. The videos were played side-by-side, and Pence said exactly the same thing. “That’s how you memorize a script,” Kimmel joked. “Mike Pence Robot is updated and ready to go. So, Mike Pence wasn’t offended and Donald Trump was. Why do I feel like we’re going to see a lot more of this dynamic.”
“Not since John F. Kennedy had a feud with the cast of ‘Bye, Bye Birdie’ has there been such flame between Broadway and the White House, and I hope it stops soon,” Kimmel continued. “Who gets into a fight with a musical? How is it possible that Donald Trump can get along with Putin but not ‘Hamilton?'”
Trump still is demanding an apology, and the cast of ‘Hamilton” is absolutely happy to apologize, but Kimmel said it’s only if Trump apologizes to the following people. He then ran a long list of all of the people that Trump has spent the last year attacking and insulting.
The list includes everyone from the Khan family, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), “Lying Ted” Cruz, “Little Marco” Rubio, “Low Energy Jeb,” Muslims, Carly Fiorina’s face, Alicia Machado, students at Trump University, President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Cher, “Morning Joe,” Macy’s, Mexicans, women and even his wife, Melania.
“So, that could be a while coming,” Kimmel concluded.
