George Takei is more than happy to have a rational, reasonable debate about marriage equality. In fact, he did just that with Donald Trump about two years ago.
"As a matter of fact, I did have a conversation with him [Donald Trump]. As you may know, I did the Apprentice show, and during a press conference, I challenged him to have lunch with me so that we can discuss marriage equality," he shared during a Monday appearance on MSNBC's The Last Word. "This was, I think, two years ago. And I fully expected him to demur, saying I'm too busy, but he did accept. And we had that lunch.
"And when I, again, met him, he said, you know what, George, I just came from a gay marriage...And he told me, they're good friends of mine. It was a beautiful marriage," the LGBT activist recalled. "And I said, 'Why can't you support marriage equality? You go to weddings of same-sex couples,' and he said, "Well, I'm for traditional marriage.'"
