Donald Trump Attended Gay Wedding and Found it 'Beautiful', He Tells George Takei During Lunch Date

Trump_takei

Donald Trump lunched with George Takei yesterday, according to a note on Takei's Facebook page.

Writes the Star Trek legend:

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.

Good work, Mr. Sulu.

No word on whether this was the lunch that Trump had promised Takei back in May, when Takei said:

“I want to listen to what his concerns are," the gay, married actor said today. "I respect people’s right to their faith…However, we’re talking about civil law as opposed to religious law, and how religious faith or value should be written into a law that effects everyone.”

Explaining why he wants to sit down with Trump, Takei said, "He is an influential person. He effects the thinking of a lot of people…I think he’s an open minded fair minded person and certainly a savvy businessman."


Donald Trump Fires Back at Petition Calling for Macy's to Dump Him, Starts Twitter War with Cher

Yesterday I reported that a petition urging Macy's to dump Donald Trump had gathered nearly a half million signatures. Currently as of this posting, the number of signatures is up to 558,707.

TrumpWrite the petition's creators:

Donald Trump does not reflect the "magic of Macy's." We urge you to sever ties with him. Macy's says it has a strong obligation to be "socially responsible" and that "actions speak louder than words." Indeed. It's time to act.

Macy's has a special deal with Donald Trump. They invest in developing Trump's brand and sell his clothing line and fragrance at their locations. To this end, they have had major events at Macy's Herald Square location and they often feature and promote Trump in advertisements designed to celebrate the magic of Macy's. Recently, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren sent Donald Trump a letter touting how excited Macy's was to be working with Trump and promising to expand Trump's brand even further than it already is. But, why is Macy's celebrating Trump?

Trump's spokesman is firing back at the petition's creator:

“What I find incredulous is that the creator of the petition is protecting his First Amendment right to free speech while simultaneously trying to impede upon Mr. Trump’s,” Michael Cohen, executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, told Celebuzz. “It’s ironic.”

“I question the legitimacy and accuracy of the website and the number of signatures claimed to have joined this petition,” he added. “Regardless, The Trump Organization values its longstanding relationship with Macy’s and looks forward to many more years of continued success.”

CherAnd Cher has entered the fray:

One of his critics is Cher, who tweeted on Monday, “I’ll NEVER GO TO MACY’S AGAIN ! I didnt know they sold Donald Trump’s Line! If they don’t care that they sell products from a LOUDMOUTH RACIST CRETIN,WHO’D LIE LIKE “HIS RUG”TO GET SOME CHEAP PRESS ! I CANT BELIEVE MACY’S THINKS HE’S THE RIGHT “MAN” 2 REPRESENT THEIR NAME!”

Needless to say, the feud-loving Trump struck back.

On Tuesday, he wrote to Cher, “I don’t wear a “rug”—it’s mine. And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work.”

Trump added, “It’s amazing how people can talk about me but I’m not allowed to talk about them.”

Colbert Offers Trump $1 Million To Tea-Bag Him: VIDEO

ColbertTrump

In response to Donald Trump's offensive and publicity-seeking offer to donate $5 million to charity if President Obama releases his college records, a moved Stephen Colbert is offering $1 million to the mogul's preferred charity if he can tea-bag Trump. As Colbert notes, "nothing would make America happier than to have something going into [Trump's] mouth instead of coming out of it".

There are conditions, and a time limit, which you can learn more about AFTER THE JUMP. The language is not so office-friendly, so you may want to break out some headphones.

President Obama Censures Mourdock, Mocks Trump On 'Tonight Show': VIDEO

ObamaLeno

President Obama touched on a whole slew of topics during his appearance on NBC's Tonight Show last night.

The commander-in-chief talked Halloween, the debates and test-driving a pal's Chevy Volt. He also poked fun at Donald Trump's offer to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice if the president would unveil his college transcripts and passport application, another volley in Trump's publicity campaign to "prove" Obama is foreign.

"This all goes back to when we grew up together in Kenya," the president laughed. "We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America I thought it would be over.”

The biggest headlines out of last night however are Obama's comments about Richard Mourdock, the Romney-backed Indiana Senate candidate who pulled a Todd Akin by saying that rape is "something God intended" and victims should keep potential babies produced by said crime.

Obama of course disagrees:

I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas. Let me make a very simple proposition: rape is rape. It is a crime. These various distinctions about rape don’t make any sense to me. This is exactly why you don’t want a bunch of politicians, mostly male, make decisions about women’s heath issues.

Watch Obama's comments about Mourdock and Trump as well as the NBC-provided footage of Jay Leno's entire interview with President Obama AFTER THE JUMP.
