Mark Cuban responds to Trump’s rant.

Mark Cuban responds to Trump’s rant.
During last week’s Apprentice 3 boardroom, Donald Trump took a moment to slam his fellow billionaire reality show hosts. He said, “Branson went after me, I killed him. Cuban went after me, I killed him.” He was referring to Richard Branson and Mark Cuban, who hosted ABC’s The Benefactor. On Friday, the New York Post talked to Cuban and reported that he said, “Donald needs to stop drinking his own Kool-Aid. He’s getting sick on himself!” But the Post mysteriously added that Cuban “offered an off-color response that was partially unprintable.” This, of course, intrigued me, so last weekend I asked Mark Cuban what he’d said. His reply:

I basically laughed and told him I must be in Donald’s head so much that he had gotten sick on himself from drinking the kool-aid, peeing in a cup and drinking it again. He keeps on talking about me in interviews when I don’t give a shit what he says or does.

Funny, but “peeing in a cub and drinking it again”–that was “unprintable”? Old media is so lame sometimes.

+ also: Mark Cuban says Trump “needs to step away from the Cialis. Those 4 hour erections have started to have an impact on his thinking.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
