George Takei Calls BS After Donald Trump Says He's A 'Blue-Collar Worker'

Okay, Donald...

Republican presidential nominee and all-around low-key dude Donald Trump called himself a “blue-collar worker” at a campaign event Monday in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, sending a wave of eye rolls hurtling through the Twitterverse.

”I consider myself, in a certain way, to be a blue-collar worker,” Trump told the crowd.

Trump, who was born into an affluent family and inherited a fortune from his late father, is hardly a poster boy for blue-collar labor, which traditionally suggests manual work.

Actor and social media king George Takei wasn’t having it ― and hit Trump with this epically hilarious retort.

”Right,” Takei tweeted. “That’s like me claiming I’m a ladies man.”

The “Star Trek” actor came out as gay in 2005 and is an outspoken LGBT advocate. He has spoken out against Trump in the past for his offensive comments against minorities and his attacks on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton

Other Twitter users, including Clinton herself, also took shots at Trump for the “blue-collar” comments.

Sorry, Donald. Looks like nobody’s buying it:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
