“Your occasional reminder that our current president lies as easy as you and I breathe air,” the “Hamilton” creator and star wrote Sunday on Twitter. “Every day, all day, reflexively.”
Miranda began a run of “Hamilton” in Puerto Rico over the weekend to benefit the arts in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
Trump’s controversial reaction to the storm created tension with Puerto Rico.
Last September Trump disputed a revised official storm death toll of about 3,000, accusing Democrats of inflating the figure to make him look bad. In September 2017, he called San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz “nasty” and accused her of mishandling the emergency.
The latter prompted Miranda to tell Trump he was headed “straight to hell” with no waiting necessary.
Outlets reported that Miranda’s tweet on Sunday was an apparent reaction to Trump’s tweets and interview with Fox News over the weekend. Some of his comments were aimed at a congressional delegation in Puerto Rico that attended the show. But Fox News host Jeanine Pirro was forced to retract her assertion in an interview with Trump that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had been “partying” there as well. Pelosi, as it turned out, did not travel to the island with the delegation.
