George Takei Takes One For The Team, Has Greatest, Classiest Lunch With Donald Trump

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Never give up, never surrenderInventor of Facebook George Takei went where no man should have to go: The Trump Tower Grill at the Trump Tower in New Trump City on the planet Trearth — the greatest and classiest of all the planets! He went to this place with Donald Trump.

There, they dined on stuff that is rotten, probably, while Mr. Takei used his infinite charm to persuade the benighted Trump to stop being a gross dick about gay people. (Presumably, he didn’t try to get Trump to stop being a gross dick about “the blacks,” because George Takei is not actually a wizard.)

Anyhoo, the BIGGEST YOOGEST CLASSIEST news is that Donald Trump went to a gay wedding and thought it was “beautiful,” and also he so yearns to have Hollywood liberals like George Takei think he is the greatest, classiest guy, so probably he will love gay marriage now.

Congratulations, gays, you just got the approval of Donald Trump for your wedding present maybe! Looks like someone went off-registry.

    Oh Myyyyyyy.

    Let's hope the alien on Trump's head doesn't go all Horta on Takei's ass.

    All that coolness sitting at a table with all that Trumpness, I think we are lucky the universe didn't turn itself inside out.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I hope George had his shields engaged and at full power.

    Meeting with Trump should be linked with the ad 3 Great Tips for Losing Weight.

  • BadKitty904

    I cannot fully state how much I admire George Takei. He kicks ass across time and space and is filled with pan-dimensional win.

    • BadKitty904

      Trump, however, still sucks.

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        In truth, they both do, but only one does it well.

        • YouFail4eva

          That would be Trump, right? Yea, what do I win?

    One of my favorite Sulu lines:

    Sulu: Temperature's starting to drop?
    Captain James T. Kirk: Yeah. At night it gets down to 120 degrees below zero.
    Sulu: That's nippy.

    It was a different time.

    • Tundra Grifter

      A Nip in the air?

      • BaldarTFlagass

        A Nip on the air, at least when he guested on Stern.

        • Tundra Grifter

  • MacRaith

    George even managed to not make any tribble jokes about Trump's toupee, because he's just that classy. Which kind of destroys my hope that someday Rebecca will convince him to blog for Wonkette – he's way classier than the rest of us.

    • BadKitty904

      I'm not generally the fanboy type, but if Mr. Takei ever blogged on here, I'd be squee-ing like a lil' piglet!

      • DCBloom

        Me too!

  • Oblios_Cap

    Alt text : Galaxy Quest, not Star Trek.

    Get your geek references straight.

    • MacRaith

      If you think about it, putting a Galaxy Quest quote on a Star Trek picture is about as brilliantly meta-referential as you can possibly get.

      Ever since the original Alien I had wished for a Sigorney Weaver "Space Bimbo" flick.

      • GeorgiaBurning

        Remake of "Cat Women of the Moon"

        • James Michael Curley

          Don’t know that one but on looking it up I don’t find any of the Cat-Women that attractive, maybe for 1953. But thanks for the reference as I will have to find it someday as I like a lot of those 50’s space/horror flicks. When I was in LA some friends and I went to the cemetery where Plan 9 from Outer Space was filmed (we had seen it a few nights before) we got out of the car (me, another guy and two girls in a Karmin Ghia) and started walking through the cemetery. We were ‘arrested’ by the Sylmar or San Fran police and taken in and questioned. Seems people had been stealing gravestones from the cemetery due to the allure of the movie. We got off with a stern warning about trespassing.The thing about Sigourney Weaver from Alien was the tiny white bikini briefs she striped to when she thought she was safe and the alien was dead. As a movie device to raise the terror level, it ranks with Hitchcock’s Shower scene.

      The Three Rules for every Star Trek episode:

      #1. The USS Enterprise is going to run out of fuel. There are not gas stations in space.

      #2. Every alien they meet is going to try to kill them. There are no nice people in outer space. (OK – ONE episode where they met somebody nice. So?)

      #3. No guest star should buy a round-trip ticket. Once they get on board the Enterprise, their life expectancy is about 45 minutes.

      I never knew until this very moment what was meant by "alt text" or why people bothered to comment on this thing that I never knew what it was. You, George Takei and Donald Trump have come together in this one moment and changed my life. One of you makes me want to take a hot shower.

    Anyhoo, the BIGGEST YOOGEST CLASSIEST news is that Donald Trump went to a gay wedding and thought it was “beautiful,”

    He pronounces it "bee-yoo-tiul".

    As someone posted here the other day, you can take the boy out of Queens, but you can't take the Queens out of the boy.

      That's what Lindsey said.

    This lunch happened right after George judged the "Most Beautiful Penis" contest on the Stern show. He had to get an idea of what a hideous penis looked like before meeting Trump so he wasn't surprised.

    George Takei is not actually a wizard

    The fanfiction I'm working on begs to disagree on that matter.

    • Guppy

      Does it involve a "magic wand?"

    • HateMachine

      "As the eldritch horror lumbered forward, the shrouded man threw back his hood and the radiance of his power shone all around, revealing himself to be none other than The Great Takei. Takei the Luminous, Sorcerer of the Seventh Circle. As the earth began to shake and lightning flew from his fingertips, a deep voice rolled through the night. It could be heard from towns many leagues distant, and it heralded the fiend's doom. OH, MYYYYYYYYYY"

    The Donald asked George for a Trible to wear as a hat.

    I hope to goodness sakes that George was gentle in his advice about Donald's horrible, horrible hair.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I did not know that George Takei invented Facebook.

  • Guppy

    Dinner conversation took a turn for the awkward when Takei tried to insist he was a natural-born US citizen.

  • docterry6973

    Hey George, some sexy shirtless shot! I bet Shatner was pissed.

    George didn't actually invent FB, he just made it popular! He's the best!

    Born in L.A., sent to a "relocation camp" as a child during WWII, becomes an integral part of an iconic TV show, rises above multiple types of bigotry with grace and humor, comes out, marries his long-time companion, becomes one of the most-sought after spokespersons in current media, inspires thousands of young people across the nation – now, THAT'S a got-dam AMERICAN success story!

    • Blueb4sinrise

      Well said .

    • http://wonkette.com/ Sharkey

      Was (is?) a regular on Howard Stern, and was actually funny!

  • Disassembly

    Trump's probably just following up on that 'Obama is a Vulcan' internet rumor.

  • http://lostintarnation.blogspot.com/ SayItWithWookies

    I didn't think Trump had anything against the gays — hell, he's from NYC, has a lot of connections in the fashion and entertainment industry, and is even buds with that gay country star he had on Celebrity Apprentice — you know — John Rich.

    • MoeDeLawn

      …and he's buds wit tranny 9/11 Giuliani, too, amrite?

    This post gave me an auto-playing Ford video, followed by some video about London coffee shops. The video doesn't click through to anything. I refreshed once and got a normal banner, no video, refreshed again and got the London coffee shop video. The Editrix said we should report these shenanigans, so…

    • BaldarTFlagass

      I had some of those last night at home, but I guess there's an effective firewall here at the base; there's just a blank white spot that the text wraps around where those spammy things were last night.

    • commiegirl99

      Yes please guys. If you get anything that autoplays, please click on it so you can send me its URL at rebecca at wonkette dot com.

      Weird things happen if you click "play" to pause video….goes to completely different web page ad. I just mute when I'm Wonking.

  • CrunchyKnee

    Trumps "hair" is highly illogical.

  • James Michael Curley

    Having never seen a Star Trek episode until the early '80's, I was always a little confused by early epiode when Kirk would have his shirt ripped open by some alien and Shatner had no areolæ or nipples. Yeas later I read that it actually was a Roddenberry ploy in his early fights with censors; 'We'll give them areolæ and keep ridiculously short mini skirts.'

  • Tundra Grifter

    Duh Gov' comes to New York to meet Donald Chump and she got a slice of pizza in some joint.

    George Takei gets lunch at The Grill?

    Meanwhile, does anyone else remember when Ole Newt crawled on his knees to kiss Chump's ring and then announced a special "Apprentice" program to benefit inner city kids? How's that workin' out for them about now?

  • DaveJ

    I'm not sure I can believe this news until at least 17 of my Facebook friends have linked to George's own post about it.

  • NothingMissing

    The Donald’s been okay with Teh Gayz in the past… or maybe we weren’t supposed to remember that.

    We sure weren’t supposed to remember about his advocacy for universal health care, though.

  • GoodDogThor

    Walk in the park for George, he used to work with Shatner.

  • OneYieldRegular

    I assume Elton John will provide the music for Trump's 47th wedding?

    And in related news… Trump will never sell Glenfiddich in any of his classy restaurants or resorts, ever, because the distillery sponsored an award given to his arch-nemesis, farmer Michael Forbes. My husband immediately said, "this calls for a toast," and pulled out his bottle of Glenfiddich.

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    True fact: Takei is, like, a thing among the kids today. That takes major-league awesomeness.
