George Takei SHREDS Trump Over Flag Burning Tweet, Schools Him On What REAL Patriotism Looks Like

Donald Trump has unleashed a constant stream of Twitter insanity over the past 48 hours and his rants have gotten crazier and crazier as the hours go on.

On Tuesday morning, Trump tweeted that “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag.” But he didn’t stop there.

Since then, the internet has been having a field day ripping him a new one for the very idea that he thinks he can infringe upon our right to free speech. Even the man responsible for making flag burning protected under the First Amendment spoke out today, calling Trump a “fascist.”

Perhaps one of the best responses we’ve seen today comes from George Takei, whose family was confined to an internment camp during World War II. Takei knows better than anybody what it looks like when America forsakes its Bill of Rights and gives in to fear and hate.

George Takei’s response hits Trump twice. In referring to the internment camp he was forced to live in with his family, Takei also puts the focus back on Trump’s promise to create a Muslim registry. We hope Trump notices that.
