JOHN LEGEND MARK CUBAN TWITTER WAR
MARK CUBAN ENCOURAGES FOOD BANK DONATIONS
JOHN LEGEND FEEL POLITICAL DONATION MORE CRITICAL
The 62-year-old billionaire brought up the topic in suggesting to his followers, ‘For those considering donating to Reps or Dems in the Georgia Senate run-offs, can you please re-consider and donate that money to your local foodbank and organizations that can help those without food or shelter? Lets put Americans in need above Politics.’
Legend, 41, replied that the political donations would help more people in the long run.
The latest: Mark Cuban, 62, and John Legend, 41, tangled on Twitter Thursday over if donations are better served toward a food bank or for political causes for the Democratic party
‘I get that politics is annoying and contentious, but the bottom line is that the Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation.
We need massive stimulus and aid to individuals and small businesses. Government needs to do this. Charity isn’t sufficient … that being said, I’ll be doing both,’ said the EGOT winner, who’s won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award.
Cuban, who owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks franchise, countered that the effectiveness of political ads was limited in comparison to taking care of the less fortunate.
‘Let’s go all the way,’ Cuban said. ‘Stop donating to charity, give those $ to politicians because 1 party will solve all of our problems! Come on John. There is a point of diminishing returns on political ad spend, there are no diminished returns when it comes to feeding the hungry.’
JOHN LEGEND MARK CUBAN TWITTER WAR OVER DONATIONS
He asked: ‘Do you really think more money will increase the chances of winning, or is it an unknown and you figure it can’t hurt? And do you really think either party puts fundamental reform over gaining/retaining power?’
Legend said he was confident ‘the Democrats will do more to help the country recover’ than the Republican party, and the ‘difference isn’t even close.’
McConnell ‘will be obstructionist and try to find ways to make’ President-elect Joe Biden ‘a one-term president, just as he promised (and failed) to do with’ former President Barack Obama.
He added he was unsure if the Georgia runoffs in support of Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock were another case of diminishing returns, he planned ‘to err on the side of donating to help Ossoff and Warnock win.
‘I hope it works,’ he said. ‘It will be better for the country.’
