It’s November 16th. This day in 2016, Vice President-elect Mike Pence attends a performance of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton,” where he is booed by the audience before the show; and after the show the cast reads him a statement of protest.

Jody, NIki, and Kellie discuss how this story played out in 2016, what we make of it now — and why Pence was at “Hamilton” to begin with.
