As part of their solemn commemoration of the January 6 “insurrection” riot, Nancy Pelosi had liberal “historians” Doris Kearns Goodwin and Jon Meacham muse about their feeling of the event. Before their presentation, the Speaker showed a video of what was reported as a Zoom call video introduced by the creator of the musical Hamilton and a song sung by some of the performers.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had Lin-Manuel Miranda and cast members from Hamilton sing Dear Theodosia ahead of an event with historians marking the one-year anniversary of the January 6 Capitol attack Thursday afternoon.
‘We are privileged to have a contribution from one of the great creative talents of our time, Lin-Manuel Miranda,’ Pelosi said. ‘May his beautiful words be an inspiration to us,’ she added.
Pelosi, standing at a podium in one of the large House committee rooms, then turned the floor over to Miranda and the Broadway singers, who performed the tune over Zoom.

The blind assumption was this song was performed specifically for the January 6 remembrance….
The lip-synced pre-produced video of the Hamilton singers originally aired during a MoveOn.org get-out-the-vote Your Vote Is Power. Power In Action: Voting With Our People push, released on October 18, 2020; a whole couple-plus months short of January 6, 2021.
So, while everyone is either fawning, trolling or “reporting” Pelosi’s presentation and Hamilton cast cringe-worthy participation, let’s not forget that someone in her office accurately assumed some in the public and “media” were gullible enough to believe this was all done for their January 6 political statement and not a lazy cut-and-paste video created to make some illusion of solidarity; you know, just like in the Capitol.
