Brandon Victor Dixon Of HAMILTON: "There's Nothing To Apologize For, Conversation Is Not Harassment"


Brandon Victor Dixon, one of the stars of the blockbuster Broadway hit, Hamilton: An American Musical, sat down with CBS This Morning to discuss the brouhaha surrounding Vice President-elect Pence's visit to the show this past weekend.

After Dixon read a message to Mr. Pence during the curtain call - addressing him as "sir," speaking in a calm, rational voice about their anxieties and concerns for the upcoming administration - Donald Trump angrily took to his Twitter account to denounce the cast and message as 'harassment," and demanded an apology.

Pence, himself, said he enjoyed the show very much and doesn't feel the need for an apology.

When asked if there would be an apology forthcoming, Dixon said, “There’s nothing to apologize for. Conversation is not harassment.”

As I wrote over the weekend, if this is what sends our president-elect into a tailspin, he may need to consider taking a moment. Theater folks reading you a message is simple stuff, Donald.

You've got MUCH bigger fish to fry. Like explaining the $25 million settlement you just paid out in a class action lawsuit for fraud regarding the now-defunct Trump University.

Oh, and then there's Russia.
