Actor, composer, and playwright, Lin Manuel-Miranda, followed through on his promise to bring his hit musical production of Hamilton to the island of Puerto Rico a year after the horrific devastation of Hurricane Maria.
Miranda, who is in Puerto Rico completing the short run, didn't take a break from calling out President Donald Trump for what many are reporting as Trump misrepresenting a group of 36 Democrat lawmakers who traveled to the island this week.
Trump tweeted over the weekend:
Miranda didn't hold back and blasted the President saying:
"I'm very proud to work with the Latino Victory Fund because you're here to work, despite what anyone might claim. I know you all saw the blue tarps when your plane landed in Puerto Rico."
Miranda wasn't finished there; he also took to Twitter to drive home his point, saying this:
"Your occasional reminder that our current president lies as easy as you and I breathe air. Every day, all day, reflexively."
