You may recall the hysteria just after the election when Mike Pence attended the Broadway smash hit, “Hamilton”. The crowd, cast and crew made went viral for their rudeness towards the new Vice President-elect. Hillary Clinton attended “The Color Purple” on broadway, over the weekend the reaction to her visit was in stark contrast to the way Pence was received. According to Page Six, the audience gave Clinton three (3) standing ovations. They were just torn up that Hillary was at the play with them and not running the country….
Audience member Jordan Serpone, who shook Clinton’s hand at the show, told the New York Times that seeing her was an emotional experience.
“I was having every emotion I’ve tried to get rid of over the past few weeks,” he said. “She shouldn’t be here. She should be planning her Cabinet.”
This isn’t at all shocking, considering Broadway for Hillary, held an event just weeks before the election to raise funds and to show support for Hillary Clinton. I actually don’t have a problem with them cheering Hillary Clinton, I just wish the same people wouldn’t feel the need to deride Mike Pence. I know I’m asking too much.
I guess we should be happy that Hillary has stopped roaming around in the woods of New York. Although her sudden appearance, in the heart of New York City, does make me wonder if there is any truth to the rumors that she’s considering a run for mayor.
