President-elect Donald Trump continued his Twitter war on “Hamilton” Sunday morning, repeating his demand for an apology for “very rude and insulting” treatment of Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Friday night.

This time, Trump added an opinion about the Tony-winning musical, saying he hears it’s “highly overrated.”

Pence, on the other hand, called "Hamilton" a "great show" during an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday. The vice president-elect said he would leave it to others to decide whether the speech to him was appropriate, but insisted that he "wasn't offended." He added that the subject appealed to him as a history buff and said "hats off to the cast and the extraordinary team" who brought "Hamilton" to the public.

Also, the culture battle extended to the show’s new production in Chicago where, according to, a Trump supporter interrupted Saturday night’s performance by shouting from the balcony, “We Won! You Lost! Get Over It!,” ending with an expletive before being removed from the theater.

Trump, a Republican, first took to Twitter on Saturday to object to an impassioned curtain speech by actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who called on the new administration to work on behalf of all Americans, including those “alarmed and anxious” that their “inalienable rights” may be infringed.

The remarks were directed at Pence, who attended the Broadway show Friday night.

“Our wonderful future V.P. Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of ‘Hamilton,’” Trump tweeted Saturday, accusing the cast of being “very rude last night to a very good man.”

The producer and creators of the multicultural musical about the founding fathers debated whether to answer Trump’s demand, then decided instead to distribute a full transcript of Dixon’s statement, which had been written by creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail and lead producer Jeffrey Seller.

Dixon, however, responded directly to Trump, tweeting, “Conversation is not harassment, sir.”

And Miranda, who wrote the book, the score and starred as Hamilton until recently, tweeted that he is proud of the show and proud of Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr, “for leading with love. And proud to remind you that ALL are welcome at the theater.”

Pence, who had been both cheered and booed at the start of Friday’s show, had begun to walk up the aisle at the end when the speech began but he heard the rest in the lobby.

“I see you walking out,” Dixon said, “but I hope you hear just a few more moments. . . . There’s nothing to boo. We’re all here sharing a story of love. We have a message for you, sir, we hope that you will hear us out.”

“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, sir. But we truly hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us.”

He concluded by saying, “Thank you truly for seeing this show, this wonderful American story told by a diverse group of men, women of different colors, creeds and orientations.”

The audience responded with cheers and applause.

Trump supporters have started a hashtag #BoycottHamilton, though the prospect of unused tickets was greeted happily by others on social media because the show is sold out through mid-August 2017. Trump, who tweeted that “the theater must always be a safe and special place,” has not been to the show.

Dixon’s curtain speech ended with a plea to donate to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Not lost on the cast was Pence’s record on LGBT issues as Indiana governor, which includes advocating to divert HIV/AIDS treatment funding to groups providing “conversion” therapy. Javier Munoz, who now plays Hamilton, is openly gay and HIV positive.

Trump’s representatives did not respond to a request for comment from Pence.
