The Long War Of The Trump Presidency Has Only Just Begun

After a week managing the transition, vice president-elect Mike Pence took his family out to the Broadway musical “Hamilton.”

As Pence entered the theater, a wave of boos swept over the audience. And at the play’s end, the Aaron Burr character, speaking for the cast and the producers, read a statement directed at Pence:

“(W)e 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.”

In March, the casting call that went out for actors for roles in this musical celebration of “American values” read:

“Seeking NON-WHITE men and women.”

The arrogance, the assumed posture of moral superiority, the conceit of our cultural elite, on exhibit on that stage Friday night, is what Americans regurgitated when they voted for Donald Trump.

Yet the conduct of the “Hamilton” cast puts us on notice. The left neither accepts its defeat nor the legitimacy of Trump’s triumph.

His presidency promises to be embattled from Day One.

The war on Trump will be waged at the usual place...In the media and they have been discredited and Trump will call them out every time they lie.

To Hamilton cast members: You are only lowly "actors" at best, and We, the People, don't give a flying f**k what you think! Long live Donald Trump!

Notice it's mostly the liberals on the two coasts crying foul over the election. But this is exactly why the electoral college system was put into place, so that the heavily populated cities of liberals did not control the entire country. It gives the less populated states in the Midwest to have equal say in our elections.
