George Takei masterfully takes down Donald Trump

Speaking to Trump’s latest stirring of the national discourse pot — this time the candidate said “all Muslims” should be banned from entering the United States — George Takei called upon his own experience at an internment camp to draw a parallel.

“It’s ironic that he made that comment on December 7, Pearl Harbor Day, the very event that put us in those internment camps,” Takei started.

“In the 1980’s Congress organized a commission to look into the reasons why that internment happened,” he said. “They found that it was three things that brought that about. One was racial hysteria, second was war hysteria, and third was failure of political leadership.”

“Donald Trump is the perfect example of that failure,” Takei added.
