As if things couldn’t get worse for the IRS, which last week apologized for spending $60,000 on a training video that spoofed Star Trek, Captain Kirk himself has now expressed his disapproval, The Hill reports.”So I watched that IRS video. I am appalled at the utter waste of U.S. tax dollars,” actor William Shatner, who played Captain James Kirk in the iconic television series, tweeted today. The kerfuffle over the video marks the biggest space scandal to hit the capital since Obama carelessly mixed Star Wars and Star Trek references in claiming he wasn’t capable of a”Jedi mind-meld.” Wondering what $60,000 buys? Judging by the five-minute video, bad writing, bad production values, and worse acting.
