One could only imagine what Donald Trump would look like if he actually took up Mark Cuban on this million dollar offer: “Donald, you shave your head, $1 million to any charity you want,” said Cuban, while being interviewed on a Fox affiliate station in Dallas.
The offer arrives as another sarcastic response to Trump’s hyped, and widely-panned, offer to Barack Obama that he would donate $5 million to a charity of his choice if the president released his passport applications and academic transcripts.
“I will give to a charity of [President Obama’s] choice… a check, immediately, for $5 million,” Trump said in a video posted on October 24. Naturally, Trump’s deadline passed without a response from the White House.
Cuban, appearing on FOX 4 News in Dallas, had fun mocking Trump’s unsuccessful bid. “The offer he made for $5 million, that was one of the dumbest things ever,” he told the station.
Cuban — co-owner of Magnolia pictures, AXS TV and owner of the Dallas Mavericks — isn’t the only celebrity who made a counter-offer to Trump: Stephen Colbert also issued a $1 million charitable donation offer to the real estate mogul in a Colbert Report segment.
Trump’s antagonism toward the White House doesn’t seem to be particularly effective. In an Oct. 29 survey conducted by The Hollywood Reporter pollster Penn Schoen Berland, he is ranked as one of the top celebrities who drives voters to support a Democrat.
