Most people struggle to fit one perfect joke into 140 characters, let alone two. But George Takei is not most people.
After revelations that President Trump confessed his real reason for firing FBI Director James Comey to Russia’s Foreign Minister and Ambassador in the Oval Office, the Star Trek star and pithy progressive advocate took to Twitter.
“I just fired the head of the FBI. He was crazy, a real nut job. I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off,” Trump told the Russian officials, documents have revealed.
Takei, never at a loss for words, had the perfect response.
Trump calling Comey a "nut job" is like me calling someone "a big Asian homo." It'd be the wok calling the kettle black.
