When Lin-Manuel Miranda Freestyled the Puerto Rico Debt Crisis on Jimmy Fallon

While we were all distracted by Donald Trump on SNL, the amazing Lin-Manuel Miranda was on Jimmy Fallon this past Friday. The “Hamilton” star did an improvised freestyle segment where he had to include random words on the spot. In Miranda’s second freestyle (around 3:50 in), the boricua Broadway star managed to get the Puerto Rican debt crisis into his rhymes: “Resurrect, resolve Puerto Rico’s debt crisis.” Watch.

We wonder if anyone in the audience knew why Miranda did it. Still pretty cool.
