Pence says he wasn't offended by Hamilton message or boos: 'That's what freedom sounds like'

Vice President-elect Mike Pence declined Sunday to join President-elect Donald Trump in his demand for an apology from the cast of the Broadway musical Hamilton, whose audience booed and cast admonished Vice President-elect Mike Pence when he attended a performance Friday night.

"I wasn't offended by what was said," Pence told Fox News host Chris Wallace, calling the show "an incredible production" and "a real joy." As for the boos, he added, "that's what freedom sounds like." Pence went on to acknowledge the disappointment and anger of those who did not vote for his ticket, vowing the Trump administration will work for all Americans. Watch his full comments below.
