Seth Meyers: Trump Somehow Made Hamilton Even More Popular

Seth Meyers on the Hamilton incident

Donald Trump does not cease to provide fodder for late-night comedians, currently involving himself in a feud with the cast of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton after Vice President-elect Mike Pence attended a performance and was booed — by the audience, not the cast members, one of whom read a very reasonable statement to Pence.

Seth Meyers points out Pence is familiar with being booed and was not offended, though Trump was quick to voice outrage via Twitter, calling the show "overrated" and defending his vice president. And it all got people talking about Hamiton more than ever — and served as a convenient distraction from the many questions being raised about Trump's conflicts of interest.
