Cuban to The Donald: Blow this for a million dollars

Get your minds out of the gutter, and consider this: Mark Cuban has offered Howie Mandel 1 million dollars (donated to the charity of his choice) if:

"Howie, if you can get Mr Trump to pull a rubber glove completely over his head
and blow it up on your show, not only will I watch it, I will donate 1
million dollars to the charity of your choice

What could be better than that ?  Money for a great cause that you love. For
the Donald, the thing he loves more than anything, bragging rights.  Is there
any doubt that by Tuesday afternoon he would be able to say that he was
responsible for the most watched television show in the history of TV ?

Is it possible that any human being on the planet would be able to resist
watching Donald Trump blow up a rubber glove over his head ? I dont think so.
Combatants around the world would lay down their arms and all enjoy a moment of 
shared laughter."

I hope if I ever become obscenely wealthy that I’d be that kind of billionaire . . .

    Seems a bit disrespectful to me… disrespectful of charities in general and Donald Trump in particular.

    Let’s assume Trump’s charities were possibly (and I don’t know what they are); Salvation Army, American Red Cross, Cancer Research, The United Way, or any of a dozen other worthy causes.

    What sort of respect is Cuban expressing about them?

    If you could save a child’s life with cancer research funding or give aid to victims of a national disaster, would you hold those things hostage to some silly challenge to a man’s dignity… in the hopes he would take the bait?

    Money is not the measure of a man.

    Donald’s head is too big to even accommodate a glove constructed from all the available latex in the free world.

    I’ve never met a guy with less class.

    Why am I supposed to be interested in watching Trump put a latex glove on his head? I’m mystified here.

    I’d rather pay to watch him put a sock in it.

    I used to think Cuban was a jackass, mostly because of his court antics as Mav’s owner. But after reading his insightful and pointed commentary over the past couple of years, I’ve changed my opinion. He’s still a jackass of sorts, but an extremely smart and honest one who tells it like it is. Sure, he has F-U money so he can’t be touched for telling the truth. But I have a feeling he’d been the same guy even if he were broke.

    I’ll watch if he leaves it on there for five minutes… ;^)
