Social media has lit up with news that cast members of “Hamilton” lectured Vice President-elect Mike Pence as though he’s a schoolboy being punished for something he did in the playground. But, Breitbart reported Tuesday, a search of voting records indicate that several cast members haven’t voted for quite some time.
According to Breitbart:
Brandon Victor Dixon, the 35-year-old actor who plays Aaron Burr, lectured Pence from the Broadway stage Friday night, expressing fear that the Trump administration “will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights.”
However, Dixon didn’t vote in 2012, according to the Daily Mail. Voting records for 2016 are not yet available.
Javier Munoz, the actor who plays Alexander Hamilton, hasn’t voted since the midterm elections in 2006.
Seth Stewart, who plays Thomas Jefferson in the 11-time Tony-winning musical, voted in 2008 but did not cast a vote in 2012. Okieriete Onaodowan, who plays James Madison, has been a registered voter since 2005 but has no record of voting.
President-elect Trump issued a tweet saying the cast should apologize to Pence for the way they treated him:
The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2016
But, Breitbart added, the leftist hypocrites who looked down their nose while lecturing Pence said they have nothing to apologize for.
Dixon appeared on CBS This Morning on Monday and said he and the Hamilton cast had nothing to apologize for” after the incident. He added that both Trump and Pence are “welcome” to come backstage and have a conversation about the concerns the cast addressed in the now-viral rant.
As usual, scratch a liberal, find a hypocrite.
