10:28 AM PT – As expected, Mark Cuban replied to Ted Cruz – and he’s excited!
“I can say Black Lives Matter. I can say that there is systemic racism in this country,” Cuban tweeted to Cruz … “I can say that there is a pandemic that you have done little to put end.”
“I can say that I care about this country first and foremost and if you think I won’t be criticizing China and what it is doing with regard to American citizens, check this out:
“But I have never been involved in the domestic politics of ANY foreign country. We have too much to do here.”
Well, that photo … “And why is it @tedcruz that you are so proud to stand up and tell the truth to Chinese people, but you don’t have the capacity to stand up and tell the truth to @ realdonaldtrump? “
Cuban Mark and Senator Ted Cruz ask each other about everything from the NBA’s handling of the protests to the hymn to China … but the focus seems to be on who has the bigger balls.
It all started when a Texas radio show host tweeted to the Dallas Mavericks owner that if any of his players knelt during the national anthem when the season resumes next week, they won’t. would support the team more.
Cuban replied – “Goodbye” … adding: “The police of the national anthem in this country is out of control.”
“If you want to complain, complain to your boss and ask him why he doesn’t play the national anthem every day before he starts working.”
That’s when Ted Cruz stepped in … saying, “Really ??!? The NBA is telling everyone who defends the flag, who honors our cops and our vets, to ‘piss off’? In Texas, not less? Good luck with that. “
Cruz didn’t tag Cuban in his tweet – and Cuban called him for it … saying, “Have some balls for once @tedcruz. Talk to me. This is my tweet.”
It was then that Cruz responded with another shot of BALLS!
“Speaking of bullets, tell us what you think of China. I’ll wait.”
Of course, Cruz is referring to the NBA’s huge problems with China in 2019 – after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl morey tweeted support for demonstrators in Hong Kong.
China basically blackballed the NBA on the tweet – and the league is said to still be scrambling to smooth out relations with the country.
So, Cruz decided that this is where he would focus his attack on Cuban Monday morning.
“Let’s try simpler. Mark, badass, can you say ‘Hong Kong free’? Can your players put this on their jerseys? Can you condemn the CCP concentration camps with 1 million Uyghurs? you say SOMETHING besides ‘Chairman Mao is good looking and wise’? “
Nothing new from Cuban yet – but guess you could tell the ball is in his court ????
