If Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonHouse Judiciary Republicans mockingly tweet 'Happy Birthday' to Hillary Clinton after Barrett confirmation Hillary Clinton tweets 'vote them out' after Senate GOP confirm Barrett CNN: Kayleigh McEnany praised Biden as 'man of the people' in 2015 MORE decides to make a second run for president, she can count on Captain Sulu among her supporters: “Star Trek” star George Takei says he’s firmly on Team Hillary.

“We’re Hillary supporters from way back,” the social media whiz — who boasts nearly 8 million Facebook fans — exclaimed, appearing to include husband Brad Takei as a fan of the former secretary of State.


The outspoken Democrat and gay rights advocate says he would “absolutely” campaign for Clinton if she decides to throw her hat into the ring in the 2016 White House race.

ITK caught up with the 77-year-old actor and “Howard Stern Show” regular Thursday at government IT media company FedScoop’s annual FedTalks gathering in Washington. The yearly event brings together hundreds of political and industry leaders from the tech and government information technology communities.

While Takei would likely give the Vulcan salute to Clinton, there’s at least one Republican lawmaker he considers to be “rational.”

“At times I support things that [Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.)] says. He’s one of the rational Republicans,” Takei says. “But I’m a Democrat and I think particularly with the Republicans now leaning more and more to the right, and with the extreme Tea Party people, there are very few Republicans that I can say are saying something rational.”

And what about the heavy Democratic losses in the midterm elections?

“I think the real winner of the midterm election was big money,” says Takei.

The entertainer is a supporter of the nonpartisan Mayday PAC, created by Creative Commons co-founder Larry Lessig and Republican strategist Mark McKinnon, which aims to “reduce the influence of money in politics.”

Making mention of the conservative group Citizens United, Takei added, “When billionaires can give $50 million, $500 million to a campaign, and there’s no limit, then it makes a mockery of ‘one man, one vote.’ ”
