Mr Sulu, Set Your Phaser on 'Burn'

Longtime readers of mine will know that I am a big fan of George Takei. I liked him in the original Star Trek, I respect his record as a fighter for civil rights, and I like his hilarious takedows, takeidowns if you will, of bigots and fools. George's latest 'burn' is a dig at Donald Trump, and boy is it a scorcher:

George doesn't suffer fools lightly, and he can deploy a thermonuclear snark-attack. I've written before that President Obama should award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to George Takei and Nichelle Nichols for their human rights work and their contributions to American culture. President Obama is a 'Trek' fan, possibly a Vulcan- awarding George and Nichelle the PMoF would enrage a lot of right-wingers, and the President doesn't owe those idiots a damn thing.

She's got the coveted G.H.W. Bush endorsement now. Can W be far behind?

That is a good one. Elicited an audible response.

Saw a slightly younger George in a Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea episode early this Mon. He played a Commie.
