Donald Trump and Mark Cuban are in a Twitter war for the umpteenth time. The last time they fought, the Mavs owner dared the quasi-real estate mogul to shave his head in exchange for $1 million, and later asked him to donate to Sandy relief. The jab was in response to Trump’s “surprise” announcement in which the personality-less personality challenged President Obama to show his college transcripts in exchange for a $5 million donation.
Now, the Donald is at it again. On Sunday, Cuban’s team, the Dallas Mavericks, lost against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Trump tweeted:
Trump then asserted that he is “much better looking” and “far richer” than Cuban, who plays golf with “the power of a little girl,” “is physically weak,” “pathetic,” and a “weak man with a big mouth.”
Donald Trump’s tweets:
Golf match? I've won 18 Club Championships including this weekend. @mcuban swings like a little girl with no power or talent. Mark's a loser— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2013
.@mcuban is so short off the tee he can't have much of a punch. He's just a weak man with a big mouth!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2013
But @mcuban is physically weak, he has no clubhead speed or game!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2013
Sorry folks, but Donald Trump is far richer and much better looking than dopey @mcuban!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2013
Does anyone remember the fight @mcuban had w/ the referee—he was weak & pathetic—a non-athlete trying to live life thru his players.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 19, 2013
Not all of those claims can be verified (after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder), but according to Forbes, Trump is right that he’s richer than Cuban by almost a billion dollars, at $3.2 billion.
But Cuban, who has called Trump a “first-class idiot,” didn’t fire back with any equivalent claims. Instead, he asked “do u really want to keep doing this? I don’t care what you think & you are so easy to pick on…” and then proceeded to have some fun:

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
