Hollywood elitist George Takei of Star Trek fame, popped off about the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
Takei, who is worth millions of dollars, said Americans should be honored to pay higher food and gas prices “if it means putting the screws to Putin.”
“Americans: We can endure higher prices for food and gas if it means putting the screws to Putin. Consider it a patriotic donation in the fight for freedom over tyranny.” Takei said in a tweet on Friday afternoon.
Someone should tell George Takei that the United States is funding Putin by buying Russian oil.
Americans: We can endure higher prices for food and gas if it means putting the screws to Putin. Consider it a patriotic donation in the fight for freedom over tyranny.

George Takei is your typical Hollywood elitist who is out of touch with the average American.
The responses were brutal.

The coming from a guy in the top 1%. Hey @GeorgeTakei you try and make it on $1500 a month. Rent, Utilities, fuel, car payment, supplemental health insurance because Medicare sucks. Until you have done this don’t tell us to endure shit. https://t.co/YZrYOJvTxC
