Tweet of the Day: Washed-up actor George Takei has warning for Trump (or is it Hillary?)
Oh, my! (credit: Andy Kropa/Invision/AP)

Oh, my! Onetime “Star Trek” cast member turned LGBT advocate George Takei has a short memory. I’m not entirely sure how it translates to Romulan years, but it was less than six Earth months ago that would-be president Hillary Clinton’s having maintained a private email server while secretary of state and subsequent deletion of 33,000 emails topped the daily news cycle.

Takei seems to have forgotten all about that, judging from a tweet he posted Sunday:

 

The admonition is based on the flimsiest of suppositions, harking back to a claim by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that the Trump administration is purging phones in anticipation of forthcoming subpoenas. In the video embedded in the third-party tweet below, Mitchell indicates that her information comes from a single unnamed source.

Needless to say, a number of Twitter users who saw Takei’s tweet took a moment out to jog his memory:

It’s anybody’s guess whether the irony of Lt. Sulu’s tweet will register with him. Liberal activists tend to be pretty dug in.
