Forget the Republicans, the Democrats, the House of Representatives, or the Senate. The real battle for gay marriage is going to take place between Sulu and The Donald over hot plates in Manhattan next month.
According to the New York Daily News, George Takei (of Star Trek fame) recently addressed the anti-gay marriage stance which Trump adopted during his failed attempt at a 2012 presidential campaign. The two were in the middle of an Apprentice conference call with reporters.
"Next time I'm in New York, Mr. Trump, I might take you to Jean Georges for lunch, and maybe we can discuss marriage equality," he said.
Takei later told the News that he had been serious about his proposal.
"I want to listen to his views and respond specifically to his concerns," he said. "The sense I get in my bones is that he's a decent, sophisticated guy. I'm sure he knows many people who are gay or lesbian."
Trump has not discussed the lunch date with reporters since the conference, but he did tell Takei at the time: "You would be the perfect guy to teach me. You have a deal."
The lunch date is tentatively set for April.
