Hillary Clinton Tweets Support for ‘Hamilton’ After Grammy Award Win

By James Knight J.knight@classicalite.com on Feb 16, 2016 01:56 AM EST

In the middle of this divisive election season there is one thing that can unite us all. That is Hamilton. The now Grammy Award winning musical is beloved by all but perhaps the most anti-American among us and even than you just know they secretly like it. Even known America hater and terrorist leader Cobra Commander was able to put his world conquest aside and snake a few tickets to the show. With the musical winning big at the Grammy Awards this Monday night, may we propose that Presidents Day be renamed Hamilton Day? Speaking of Presidents. Presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton got into the action, tweeting her support for Hamilton after they won. At last we checked this message had not been deleted so we can assume she still stands by it.

"Can we get back to politics, please? (Great job, @HamiltonMusical.) #Grammys."

This is not the first political encounter that the cast of Hamilton has had with a Head of State. The show has also attracted President Obama to the Richard Rodgers Theatre as Renée Elise Goldsberry recently toldVulture :

“The height of this whole hype was when Obama came a second time and spoke from the stage. We got to sit in the wing as a company and patter back and forth with him in the beginning of his speech. I don't know that it's possible for that to be topped in my lifetime. That went beyond what my biggest dream was, which was that I would one day perform for a president. Then it was this president, and he came back.”
