Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, is pretty angry at Congress for failing to come up with and pass a bill to help American workers and businesses during the coronavirus pandemic. He was so angry that he jumped on Twitter and broke out some pretty graphic language to make his point.
What set Cuban off was a tweet from Texas Senator John Cornyn. Cornyn literally “blah blah blah’d” over Senator Chuck Schumer’s explanation for why he and other Democrats voted no on the McConnell-GOP coronavirus relief bill.
Cuban saw that tweet and unleashed quite the profane rant. (Warning: Lots of NSFW language to come.)
BOTH OF YOU NEED TO DO YOUR FUCKING JOB! @SenSchumer, stop kissing progressive ass. We can't solve every problem in this deal🍑 @JohnCornyn , stop kissing big corporate ass. They don't need buybacks or exec bonuses. They have no choice but to take any deal they can get. 🍑 https://t.co/CSpY6zIxla— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) March 24, 2020
The economy is crashing and people are getting sick and dying because you 2 hard dicks think your agendas are bigger than the health and future of the American people. They are not. There is no perfect deal. TIME IS OUR ENEMY. Get this done today !— Mark Cuban (@mcuban) March 24, 2020
Cuban was the first NBA owner to pledge to financially help his non-athlete employees after the NBA was shut down due to the pandemic. He has also not made any moves to cut his employees’ salaries, unlike Philadelphia 76ers owner and hedge fund billionaire Josh Harris. Starting in April, Harris is mandating a 20-percent salary reduction for any at-will Sixers employee who makes more than $50,000 a year.
Cuban — and many American workers who have been struggling with layoffs and job loss as the country tries to protect itself from the pandemic — may have a reason to be slightly happier soon.
NEW: Senate Minority Leader Schumer says "we're on the [2-yard line]" of coronavirus relief negotiations; thinks deal can be reached “in the next few hours.” pic.twitter.com/Ng4u7NGANQ— MSNBC (@MSNBC) March 24, 2020
Schumer used a football analogy, but it still counts.
