My mother used to say, “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” This true adage seems to define the latest Twitter war between real estate maverick Donald Trump and Dallas Maverick’s owner, Mark Cuban.
For the past few days, I’ve watched these two go at it on Twitter. It apparently started in November when Cuban offered Trump $1 million to shave his head, a response to Trump’s $5 million challenge to President Obama to produce his birth certificate.
Last week, Mark Cuban was on Jay Leno responding to a letter Trump sent him regarding his cancelled show, The Benefactor which read:
“When I initially called you to congratulate you on The Benefactor – little did you or I realize how disastrous and embarrassing it would turn out to be for you. If you ever decide to do another show, please call me and I will be happy to lend a helping hand.”
OK then! In response, Cuban said, “Can I just say, Donald, how’s that working out for you now?” Cuban told Jay Leno’s audience.
Of course the madness continued into Twitter land:
I watched Mark Cuban on Jay Leno last night – what a jerk!
“…he is “short off the tee,” a “weak man with a big mouth” and has “no clubhead speed” – his personality – “@mcuban has less TV persona than any other person I can think of. He’s an arrogant, crude, dope who met some very stupid people” – and his Dallas Mavericks – “why does @mcuban continue to embarrass the 31-35 & 11th place @dallasmavs with childish behavior.”
According to Yahoo! Sports, When one follower asked Trump “what’s the best confidence builder,” Trump responded, “Going against losers like Mark Cuban!”
Cuban, of course hit the reply button with:
“Golf?” “You just see this crazy life I have & you’re in awe.I’m just gonna take over the world while you getting mad..”
And then finally, last night…the challenge:
Really, Mark? Really?
This is what happens when you have too much money and too much free time. You get involved in ridiculous antics and show the world how stupid you can be.
