This past weekend, Judge Jeanine Pirro took aim at the critically acclaimed play Hamilton on her Fox News show Justice, for actor Brandon Victor Dixon giving Vice-President Elect Mike Pence an impromptu on-stage speech after the cast's Friday night performance (Nov. 18). Pence, who was in attendance with his family, became the target of Dixon's remarks.
“We, sir -- 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,” said Dixon. “We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”
The comments didn't sit well with Trump himself or his supporters, and added her voice to the roar of Hamilton criticism following the cast's address to Pence.
