Mr. Spock Fails to Understand Trump

The Alternative Fact(or); or, The Alternative (F)actor
Anyway, this is a real line from the Star Trek: The Original Series episode "The Alternative Factor" (1967):
SPOCK  (to Trump): " I fail to comprehend your indignation, sir. I have simply made the logical deduction that you are a liar."

(by me, but feel free to take it away) 
Spock has met Trump before.

Original screencap at

"Never has there been a presidential candidate who stands in such complete opposition to the ideals of the 'Star Trek' universe as Donald Trump…"  
--"Trek Against Trump" letter signed by 100 members of the Star Trek cast and crew, including Zoe Saldana (new Uhura), George Takei (Sulu prime), and Eugene Roddenberry (son of creator Gene and actor Majel).

It's just too weird that the episode is called "The Alternative Factor".

SPAKER: Even weirder, I didn't notice how weird it was until you pointed it out here! I added that to the post.
