Mark Cuban trolls Trump with hilarious NBA All-Star ‘voter fraud’ conspiracy

Published

on

Billionaire hedge funder and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took a swipe at newly-sworn in Republican Pres. Donald Trump on Thursday by saying that a rival team’s player made the cut for the 2017 NBA All-Star game due to “voter fraud.”

Mediaite.com said that Cuban was speaking to the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram when he began to slyly make fun of Trump’s obsession with his popular vote loss, which the new president has repeatedly blamed on “illegal voters” and “vote fraud” — charges that are not borne out by evidence.

This year, the players picked to start in the 2017 All-Star game have been odd choices given that they have only been on the court sporadically throughout the season.

Mediaite’s Joe DePaulo wrote that Cuban “referenced Trump’s unsubstantiated voter fraud claims by mentioning the four NBA All-Star ballots cast for Golden State Warriors backup center JaVale McGee. McGee seldom sees playing time, which makes the All-Star votes for him difficult to explain.”

Cuban told the Star-Telegram that he has an answer.

“There must have been voter fraud,” Cuban said. “Because I would have bet JaVale McGee really got three million, and him and [little-used Mavericks backup center] A.J. Hammons probably split that. I know I was registered with five different teams, and I’m not eligible to vote.”

He went on to mock Trump’s “investigation” into the alleged 3 million illegal voters who cost him the popular vote by saying, “I’m calling for an executive investigation and I’m going to sit down with (NBA commissioner) Adam Silver and we’re going to get to the heart of this, I truly believe. If we can’t protect the integrity of All-Star voting, this league has serious problems. I think Space Ghost even got a vote in there.’’

Space Ghost is a Hanna-Barbera cartoon action hero from the 1960s.

Cuban was one of Donald Trump’s harshest critics during the 2016 campaign, but abruptly lowered his profile with regards to Trump after the November election. However, it appears that the Mavericks owner can’t resist poking a little fun at the chief executive.

LGBTQ pride ‘forces’ people to accept ‘a perverted and non-biblical view of sexuality’: West Virginia Republican

Published

on

West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.

"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
