They were welcomed by a cheering crowd, but Bill seemed much more interested in his wife... and her assets.

It's no big secret that Trump is not particularly well liked in — and, some might say, is in fact "despised" by — his hometown.
"In Transit" is actually all about New York, so it must have been extra poignant for the former senator of New York and her husband.

Clinton spoke to supporters at the musical, as seen in the first Instagram video up in this post. She said,
Clinton, along with daughter Chelsea and former president Barack Obama, has been voicing her support for the demonstrations against Trump's policies and general discrimination, including the Women's March.
This is not the first appearance on Broadway that the Clintons have made for date night.
After making it out of the woods, the Clintons have been spotted at several shows, including "The Color Purple," where they were also warmly greeted.
As an opera fan, I do urge the couple to go beyond Broadway and perhaps check out "Carmen," "Rigoletto," "La Traviata" or "Eugene Onegin" at the Metropolitan Opera, which all tell stories of the tragic results of fragile, controlling masculinity in the face of female autonomy and sexuality.
They could also check out "Don Giovanni" this season, an opera about a powerfully-born rapist ultimately dragged to Hell that has been compared to the life of Donald Trump.
Regardless, the Clintons want to see some musicals and are clearly finding some fun ways to fill their time outside of the White House.
Well, that is, until Hillary runs for mayor of New York.
