Billionaire Mark Cuban, who is the owner of the Dallas Mavericks NBA team, and co-host of the “Shark Tank” television show, seemed to lose his ever loving mind on Sunday in response to popular podcast host Joe Rogan’s interview with Democratic Party presidential candidate, Robert Kennedy Jr. Now, it’s important to note that RKJ is most definitely a liberal. However, he is very much in the center and sometimes ever so slightly on the right concerning specific issues, including the coronavirus pandemic and the vaccine, which is what triggered Cuban.
“Rogan’s interview with RFK Jr. ruffled more than a few feathers within the crazy world of billionaires, globalists and medical professionals, mostly for the heavy emphasis on vaccine safety discussed throughout. The Twitterverse lost its mind over the episode, so much so that Rogan offered a professor at Baylor College of Medicine some $100,000 for an open debate with RFK Jr. on whether or not the claims he made actually qualify as ‘vaccine misinformation,'” the Daily Caller reported.
Tom Nichols, a writer, said that “no medical professional should ever agree to do this.” Rogan, however, fired back with “That would be a great suggestion if you could assure that the industry you were representing wasn’t completely captured by heartless monsters who have a history of some of the biggest criminal fines in human history because their deception has cost hundreds of thousands of people their lives.”
He then said that “maybe it would be a good idea to have a f***ing debate.”
And right about then is when Cuban went nuts.
Way to talk in generalities Joe. Not saying there aren't a lot of fucked up things about pharma. That's why we created https://t.co/jYSNkP7amr. But to ignore that the same industry has saved who knows how many lives is bullshit and you know it.
It's also disrespectful to all… https://t.co/bUawoBgbH6

“Cuban’s response reads like an awkward advertisement for one of his companies that claims to supply cheap medical care and left him looking pretty weird. First, Cuban stated that there are a lot of ‘f***ed up things about pharma … But to ignore that the same industry has saved who knows how many lives is bullshit and you know it,'” the Daily Caller said.
The billionaire then accused the podcast host of not being respectful to doctors and other medical professionals who “believe that vaccines save lives,” though he didn’t say a word about proof, nor did he provide any evidence himself.
He then attempted to make the case that Rogan was guilty of bullying a college professor who he says would not be capable of doing enough preparation to win a debate, despite the fact he works “every day to try and find ways to help people.”
Cuban then ended his tirade by stating that Rogan and Twitter owner Elon Musk “have become everything supposedly wrong with the mainstream media.”
Why do people like Cuban, who really don’t have a clue what they are talking about, always wade into hot button issues like this when they lack the proper knowledge to engage in an intelligent discussion and provide proof that backs up their claims? It’s an attempt at a flex, nothing more.
The Daily Caller’s Kim Smythe said, “Firstly, anyone with any expertise should be able to stand up and debate anyone else in that field because that is literally the point in being an expert. Cuban’s argument was weak at best and cringe at worst. It made the entire situation look that much bleaker for the medical establishment. If no one stands up to debate RFK Jr., it only further validates the claims he made during the episode.”
She continued, “Let’s be honest, there is so much money to be made from vaccines that it is unlikely anyone will have the guts to stand up and potentially lose that debate. But where does that leave the rest of us, who just want to know the truth about what is being pushed into our bodies by Big Pharma?”
We deserve to know what is being put inside of us, don’t we? Where are all the “my body, my choice,” people? The same individuals who have consistently argued in favor of abortion, claiming the unborn child in the womb has no right to life and have stated that a woman has the right to do what she wants with her body, change their tune when it comes to the vaccine.
The left often stated that if you didn’t take the shot, you were putting other people’s lives in danger. Is this not the same thing pro-lifers have stated about abortion and how it terminates another person’s life?
The hypocrisy is astounding.
