The Donald Trump-Mark Cuban feud has been relatively quiet for a while now, but the Mavs owner threw down the gauntlet last night for his billionaire arch-nemesis.
Cuban, appearing in a painfully long segment on Fox 4's 9p.m. newscast, which inexplicably included a basketball hoop and quickly descended into a mire of inane reader-submitted questions after anchor Heather Hays' increasingly desperate attempt to talk politics failed, did offer his thoughts on The Donald.
"The offer he made for $5 million, that was one of the dumbest things ever," Cuban says at about the 3:30 mark, stating the obvious about the real estate magnate's recent offer to donate $5 million to a charity of Obama's choice if the president releases his college transcripts.
That prompted Cuban to make an offer of his own.
"Donald you shave your head, a million dollars to any charity you want," he said.
Let's make this happen, people.
