Liberal Star Trek actor George Takei recently said on Twitter that he wants Democrats to filibuster all of Trump’s cabinet nominees. He apparently hasn’t heard that the Democrats made that impossible by using the nuclear option to kill the filibuster when they were in power.
He has since deleted the tweet but other Twitter users captured it for posterity:

@lachlan Besides Dems killing the fillibuster, Takei also seems unaware that Flynn's position doesn't require Senate confirmation.
