Republican strategist Karl Rove said Saturday that the "Hamilton" cast could have "made their point and actually helped unify the country" in ripping Vice President-elect Mike Pence on Friday but instead showed themselves as "self-centered left-wingers without courtesy or discretion."

"It is a measure of Mike Pence’s basic decency that after being booed by a few self-righteous New Yorkers in the audience, who probably don’t know anyone who voted for Trump except maybe their doorman, that Mr. Pence stayed, patiently listened to [actor Brandon Victor] Dixon's supercilious lecture, and then gently took his leave," Rove said in an op-ed for Fox News.

Dixon, who plays Vice President Aaron Burr in the Tony-winning musical about the Founding Fathers, told Pence from the stage at the end of their performance that the diverse cast was worried about the Trump administration.

"We, sir, we 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," Dixon said at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. "We truly hope that this show has inspired you to uphold our American values and to work on behalf of all of us. All of us.

Rove posed this, saying that Dixon's speech might have been more unifying:

"We, sir, are the part of the diverse nation that is America. With the election now past, we all hope for your administration's success in defending our planet, our children, and the inalienable rights of every American.

"We are grateful you came and hope this show inspires you as you work on behalf of all the people of our common country," Rove offered.

"It would have been so easy for Mr. Dixon to have made his point and helped the country heal while doing so," Rove concluded. "So easy, but apparently that was not the actor’s purpose.

"Shame."
