Even though Donald Trump is mad about it, seems like Vice President-elect Mike Pence is taking his booing in stride!

As you'll remember from yesterday, Pence was booed mercilessly while taking in a Broadway showing of Hamilton on Friday night, and almost immediately after, controversy blew up when Trump couldn't resist tweeting about it!

But today on Fox News Sunday, Pence cleared the air regarding what he thought about the boos — and it sure sounds like the VP-elect is taking it like a politician should!

Pence said that, when the boos started, he turned and said to his daughter:

"That's what freedom sounds like."

Cheesy… but very true!! People are allowed to boo you, and freedom of expression is ingrained in The Constitution, regardless of what some ignorant Federal judges may believe.

Pence continued:

"I really enjoyed watching Hamilton. It was a real joy to be there. I heard a few boos. I wasn't offended by what was said."

In this instance, good for you, Governor!

Of course, there is the issue of Pence being aggressively anti-LGBT, which shouldn't be overlooked (and was at least partially the cause of his booing in the first place).

Pence is also part of a troubling ticket coming to power in this country in January, and the VP-elect added this to say about The Donald and their plans in the White House:

"I just want to reassure people that what Donald Trump said on election night, he meant. He is bringing people together. … [Trump] is a man that knows his mind, he is going to surround himself with people of diverse backgrounds … and is completely focused on the people's business. There will be a proper separation between his businesses."

Hmm… not so sure about that last part, but, OK.

At the very least — and it sure isn't much — Pence deserves a little bit of credit for taking the boos much, much more appropriately than Trump (as you'll remember, below):

Oh, Donald…
