‘HAMILTON’ RAISED MONEY FOR HILLARY AND DAD OF CREATOR LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA IS A LONG-TIME NY DEMOCRAT STRATEGIST…NOW YOU KNOW WHY PENCE GOT BOOED?
The Broadway musical ‘Hamilton’ was in the tank for Hillary Clinton last election and they even tried to raise money for her. Broadway leftie? Not a surprise!
Who’s Lin-Manuel Miranda? The creator according to NYT:
‘Mr. Miranda has his own political roots: His father, Luis A. Miranda Jr., is a longtime Democratic strategist in New York. The younger Mr. Miranda has, in recent months, urged Congress to assist Puerto Rico in its financial crisis.’
Now you know why Mike Pence got booed. They got Trumped and they Penced and they are still recovering from the shock.
FROM NEW YORK TIMES: $2,700 for Hillary Clinton at ‘Hamilton’? That Would Be Enough
How does a former senator … stateswoman … hoping to build a financial stockpile … find a way to make it worth her donors’ while?
At a special Tuesday matinee, deep-pocketed supporters of Hillary Clinton filed into the Richard Rodgers Theater for a special performance that was, in a rare turn, a touch more expensive than a typical show.
But with seats available for $2,700 — and status as “event chair” on offer for $100,000 — the gathering, held for the Hillary Victory Fund, did include an uncommon guest: Mrs. Clinton, who took the stage after the final bows of a show she has now seen three times.
“I cry every time,” she said, after embracing the show’s creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, who left his role as the title character over the weekend but returned on Tuesday to introduce her.
