Mark Cuban pushes back on Elon Musk calling states' coronavirus lockdowns 'fascist'
Fox News ^ | April 30 2020 | Talia Kaplan

Dallas Mavericks Owner and billionaire investor Mark Cuban pushed back Wednesday on Tesla CEO Elon Musk for reportedly calling states' coronavirus shelter-in-place orders “fascist.”

“Anything that negatively impacts Tesla, Elon hates, period, end of story,” Cuban said on “Fox News @ Night” on Wednesday. “I don’t think he has other people’s interests at heart. I mean, I don’t really know him at all, but that’s just my take.”

During an earnings call on Wednesday, The Verge reported that Musk said, “The expansion of shelter-in-place, or as we call it, forcibly imprisoning people in their homes, against all their constitutional rights, is, in my opinion, breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong, and not why people came to America and built this country.”

I disagree with Elon. I think they’re more Stalinist or Maoist myself.

I’ll take a guy that is exploring space over a guy who looks like Frankenstein’s kid and has a stoopid basketball team any day.

Cuban needs to wear a “I’m a fascist” sign at all times.

“Mark Cuban sounds like a total a-hole.

I mean, I don’t really know him at all, but that’s just my take.”

Cuban tries to play down the middle too much.

Playing in the middle of the road just gets you run over.

That’s because Cuban is one....he hates the “unwashed masses” having any freedoms at all.

Calling Mark Cuban a a-hole is being very kind. He deserves a much more descriptive adjective.

Why does Fox “News” keep telling telling what Mark Cuban thinks?

Here’s what Chris thinks.

When Mark Cuban comes on my TV, I change the channel.

Also, Fox, when Jeff Sessions’ weird, smoothed out alien face appears on my TV, my TV gets turned off.

Please stop with these pointless losers, and fire Paul Ryan.

Musk is correct.

Cuban wants the Trump economy to fail.

On this particular issue, I stand with Musk. Might be the only issue, I don’t know.

I want my freedom back. The Constitution is the law of the land, and anything that goes against it is not valid.
