Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban offered Donald Trump an unusual deal today: $10 million in exchange for a four-hour interview.

In a series of tweets, Cuban initially said Trump could have the money go to the charity of his choice. But he subsequently suggested that the GOP nominee, who says he’s worth more than $10 billion, could actually use the money.

“I’ll add an option. If you need it, I’ll write you the check and you can keep the money rather than give it to charity,” he jabbed.

Cuban also listed a few terms for the interview, including that it would only be about Trump’s policy proposals and that no one besides a broadcast crew would join them in the room.

And you are trying to tell me that Hillary doesn't do the same thing?

Dude. You gotta learn how the nesting comments work. It's frequently difficult to discern who you are talking to.

This offer is a joke. It's akin to old question: have you stopped beating your wife? If he accepts people will scream bloody murder for taking the money. If he refuses, the same people would be all like...."see, see he can't take the heat!"

Trump judges people by the size of their pocketbook. Unless you have money you are nothing to him.

The money can go to charity. It is win win for him if he actually had any plans to talk about aside from building a wall.

The only way he should do this is if Hillary sits next to him and answer's the exact same questions with a impartial panel chosen from both sides to decide if its shit or shinola of course we know that this will never happen.

While both of them are garbage human beings, she would destroy him here. She has experience in answering hardball questions and is a much better speaker than he is. She can make her bullshit sound like pixie dust on the spot while he rambles on about nonsense.

Will go one of two ways. First is that he accepts the $10M, but then during the interview he weasels his way around any real answers anyway. Or Second, he declines, stating something about being too wealthy to care about Cubans measly $10M and say it would have to be a lot more. Probably the second if we are going to be honest.

How about 10 million for Hillary to go to a doctor that isn't apart of her entourage and get a real physical work up? Oh wait, her health isn't being talked about anymore.

See? We can't actually talk about the substance of the election. You have to switch the conversation to something else because you know how a discussion on policy, positions, competency, or experience turns out for your side. So what if she does have epilepsy or some other condition? FDR had polio and was paralyzed. Did that make him unfit?

The substance of the elections? The deplorable basket she thinks I sit in because I don't support her? Or the lies she keeps telling about every fucking topic brought up to her attention? I get it, Trump sucks. I don't like him very much, but as a veteran a hunter and a tax payer there is no way I can even contemplate supporting that sorry excuse for a human being you call Hillary.

First of all she said half his supporters. So are you in the half she said are racists, Islamophobic, xenophobic, and misogynistic? Second of all, just because you don't support her doesn't mean you do support him. Are you voting FOR Trump or just AGAINST Hillary? I don't support Hillary. I'm still voting for her.

@Nicod3mus This doesn't bother you? We should take away first amendment rights of content because it incites violence? How about when Trump tells people he'll pay for their legal defense? What's the difference? If he said the same thing about a GUN you would have gone apeshit. But it's just freedom of speech. So fuck it right?

@Nicod3mus You definitely are Donald Trump. No substance or intelligence just short, brash, 3rd grade insults and falsely confident self congratulation. I can see why you like him. I kinda hope he wins. Half of this country deserves him. I'll just sit back and watch the country burn like the last time you fuckwits elected a republican. Than when there is blood on the streets I'll buy property. I don't have a sticker because I think stickers on your car reeks of food stamps and trailer parks but I'm with you man, fuck coexisting! Am I right? Peace and respect are for liberal pussies! Fist bump bro!

@Nicod3mus Wait, ARE you Donald Trump? Is that why you like him? That is the way he would respond. You live in a right wing bubble. Someone has TOLD you that Hillary will erode your freedom. You can't possibly base it on any empirical evidence because none exists. 20 6 yr olds were murdered by a crazy person with a semi automatic assault rifle and NOTHING happened. I can still buy it at Walmart. The 2nd amendment isn't going anywhere. The 2nd amendment like abortion and gay marriage is a wedge issue that the rich use to get hillbillies to vote against their own financial interests. Way to take the bait simpleton.

@normalfreak2 What have I dismissed? Please show where I have said anything of the sort. Hillary is 100% going to put someone in the supreme court if she wins and that person will erode the 2nd amendment, period.

@nicod3mus I don't understand it...Trump all day everyday says something Authoritarian and yet you dismiss it and still believe Hillary is going to take your rights away. The guy who's been saying he's going to take rights away you dismiss, and the person that has been saying they aren't you are believing they are coming after your rights. Explain that reasoning please.

@HolyGod So I answer your questions and get a bitchy snide remark? Last time I'll give any of your comments the benefit of the doubt, feel free to go fuck your smug liberal self. :)

@Nicod3mus I know you are always worried about the "real" and terrifying prospect of Democrats taking all your freedoms. I heard the same thing during Obama's presidency. What freedoms have you lost in the last 8 years? What rights does Hillary guarantee to erode? Genuinely curious. As someone who lives in reality I like to tour right-wing fantasy land once in a while.

I'm a white male that makes good money, so yeah I bet she would find a way to label me with one of those emotional terms. Secondly I'm an adult with two choices, one guarantees an erosion of my rights the other doesn't. I'll take my chances with him all day long.

Look at your fellow Trumpians, there's a lot of them that support racists, xenophobic, sexist, etc policies. She didn't say all of them were, she said about half. And the statistics kinda agree with that assessment. More like 40% but that's close enough.

I am against Divisive politics. She even qualified what she said by saying she was being grossly generalist. Listen the 47% comment was just wrong. I mean blatantly wrong. There's evidence to support that about 40% of Trump supporters support anti-muslim, anti imigrant, anti gay, anti women policies.

NF2, Sorry but you are completely taking out your ass there. Please do not try to justify Hillary's 'Basket of Deplorables' gaffe. You criticized Romney for his 47% remark, at the time, and honestly her comment is much much worse than his. You've criticized 'divisive' politics before and now you're supporting it? Please do not fall into that hypocrisy, you're better than that.

Her 'experience' is the main problem, She's had 30 years of conniving, dishonesty, deception, cover-ups and perjuries. And she's claiming to be a 'reform' candidate? What's she going to reform, herself?

By "experience" do you mean 30 plus years of milking the tits off the system and grifting the tax payers?

So she has 30 years of political experience? I know you were one of the people deriding Obama's experience when he ran for president. He had 8 years as a state senator and 4 years as a national senator. Trump has never even been on the PTA. You don't think Trump has " 30 years of conniving, dishonesty, deception, cover-ups and perjuries"? Come on. And his were to pillage steal and crush people in the service of only himself.

@CrackrJak You've probably seen this video: http://tinyurl.com/j5qe6ne "I resent that he shorted me a huge amount of money, his organization does that to everybody. At the time I could see that the carpenters, the tile guy, the landscape consultant, the mechanical engineering consultant, other vendors and tradespeople were all subjected to an after-the-fact renegotiation challenge."

@CrackrJak This is a good article. Talks about the 50 yr old family cabinetry business that went under when Trump refused to pay and the thousands of lawsuits from the little guy when Trump refused to pay. http://tinyurl.com/zt3e55p

@CrackrJak I consider myself a successful businessman, although nowhere near the level of Trump and Cuban. I made almost $200k last year. My father built a radio network from scratch and sold it for $12 million when I was in high school. One of his good friends that I grew up calling "uncle" is worth around $300 million. I have no problem with "successful business people". While I can't speak about my dad's friend, I can assure you there is nobody in my or my father's past that believes they were fucked over. I'm not talking about getting a contract or job someone else wanted, I'm talking about unfairly or dishonestly fucking them over. There are tons of stories out there of Trump willfully screwing people over. Look them up.

@Crakrjak I'd love to take your word for it but I'd like to see Trump's taxes to prove what you are saying. I don't appreciate your generalizing saying "Progressives" believe no one can possibly get rich without screwing people over. That's only if you want to be a Billionaire. Not sure I know of any Billionaire that didn't do something to dick over someone else in the process. Being rich though, you can get rich by not screwing people over.

"..his were to pillage steal and crush people.." I do believe that is the same old tired rhetoric that every liberal aims at a successful business person, even Mark Cuban. The jealous envy of 'progressives' that believe that no one can possibly get rich without screwing people over, stealing or not paying taxes. In your mind the rich are all criminals, except of course those supposedly bleeding heart politicians that swear they know what's best for you, better than you do. Do you honestly believe that Hillary is not greedy? That she hasn't 'pillaged, stolen and crushed people' that got in her and her husbands way? Hell if you've ever had to compete for a job interview and won, you've crushed someone Else's hopes. Everyone has enlightened self-interest, aka greed, even you. So save your rhetorical platitudes, no one is without the sin of greed in their hearts.
