Joining the list of “Things That Happened,” George Takei had a pleasant lunch with Donald Trump. The fact that anyone, anywhere had a pleasant lunch with Donald Trump is already cause for head-scratching, but the two also had a pleasant conversation. About gay marriage.
Takei described the encounter via his Facebook:
Friends, I had lunch with Donald Trump today at the Trump Tower Grill. It was a lively and engaging hour-long conversation that touched upon his personal position on marriage equality. He confided that he recently attended a same-sex wedding and that he’d found it “beautiful.”
I remarked that NY is now a marriage-equality state, and that after all, marriage is better for business! Minds are changing across America, and I am always ready to speak to those ready to listen. I hope that my chat with The Don might have some effect on his stance on the subject.
Well, if anyone could make the heart of the Grinch Who Stole Combovers double in size it would be George Takei, whose heroic LGBT advocacy is already the stuff of comic book legend.
