Donald Trump should have figured out a long time ago that Twitter does him no favors, but alas, learning lessons from his mistakes doesn’t seem to be one of the Republican nominee’s strong suits. On Friday, Trump decided to attack President Obama but all he did with his snarky tweet was set himself up to be completely and hilariously owned by George Takei.
Trump tried to take a swing at Obama for campaigning on behalf of his Democratic rival. Questioning the president’s actions, he tweeted, “Why isn’t President Obama working instead of campaigning for Hillary Clinton?”
So Takei, who is a living legend as well as an LGBT icon, took to Twitter to explain to the GOP nominee just what the president’s job is and why Obama is absolutely fulfilling his duties as Commander-in-Chief by hitting the campaign trail for Clinton.
As Commander-in-Chief, he is sworn to protect us from threats both foreign and domestic. You, sir, are the latter.
Ouch! Trump is gonna need some ointment after that brutal burn.
Donald Trump apparently knew he couldn’t go up against the likes of the Star Trek veteran because his tweet has since disappeared from his Twitter page, presumably deleted in a flurry of orange-tinged rage and utter shame. Thankfully, this is the internet, which doesn’t work quite like Vegas. Things that get posted here live on forever, even if you click delete.
Takei’s response could not have been any more spot on. There is no greater threat to the United States than Donald Trump. He must be stopped. Which means we must elect Hillary Clinton in November. Obama has made it quite clear that he knows Trump must not be allowed to get anywhere near the White House and he intends to do everything he can to make sure that never happens.
