John Legend Attacks Mark Cuban for Encouraging People to Donate to Food Banks Instead of Upcoming Democrat Senate Races

Singer John Legend went off on business titan Mark Cuban after he encouraged people to donate to their local food banks, rather than supporting the Senate run-offs in Georgia.  

The balance of power in the Senate is up for grabs in the January 5 elections, where the Democrats have the possibility of taking control if Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is forced to be the tie breaker in a situation where neither party holds a majority.  

Cuban commented on the upcoming races by encouraging supporters of both parties to give their hard-earned money to those in need instead of politicians.  

“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 food bank and organizations that can help those without food or shelter? Lets put Americans in need above Politics,” Cuban encouraged.

But liberal Legend argued that the government, not the people should be providing aid to struggling citizens.  

“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,” he rebuked. “We need massive stimulus and aid to individuals and small businesses. Government needs to do this. Charity isn’t sufficient.”

An astonished Cuban clapped back at Legend’s audacity. “Let’s go all the way. 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.”

But Legend didn’t seem to get the message: “Agree that there is a point of diminishing returns to political ad spending. So we should choose whether or not to donate with that in mind. But charity isn’t going to be sufficient to address all the suffering out there. We need big spending that only governments can do at scale.”

Cuban questioned if Legend really believed that additional finances would help either party win. “Charity is often a band-aid. But a lot of people are suffering now. Do you really think more money will increase the chances of winning, or is it an unknown and you figure it can’t hurt?”

Leftist Legend thinks putting the Dems in power will be better for the nation. “I believe the Democrats will do more to help the country recover. Period. I don’t think it’s even close,” he tweeted. “But I plan to err on the side of donating to help Ossoff and Warnock win. I hope it works. It will be better for the country.”

He argued that a Senate led by Schumer, rather than McConnell would be “hugely impactful to the lives of everyday Americans,” while Cuban retorted, “Both put power and party over the American people. Do you think Schumer is any less power hungry than Mitch?”

Cuban’s closing remark: “Let those $ go to those in need.” Legend concluded, “That being said, I’ll be doing both.

Hypocrisy is common among rich democrats but Legend is correct in one sense. I’ve personally watched the same luxury SUVs parading through local foodbanks, repeatedly on the same day and driven by the same women who, based on apparel and makeup, are from upper-middle class income families. Many have thick Spanish accents and are barely conversant in English. Many also obviously only pretend to be parents.

What the hell does Legend care, he and his family have plenty to eat, and I hope he chokes on his precious food. Just another rich jerk, off the back of the decent American people that were stupid enough to buy his records, that he doesn’t care about one bit. I wish all these hypocrites would just SHUT UP. They make me sick.

Leftists don’t care about anything but power. So what if people starve as long as their guy wins. How magnanimous. They are the party of hate and greed. Something they have tried to hide in the past. Now their avarice is there for all to see.

I’m no Cuban fan, but he has a point. Look at the hundreds of millions poured into Florida by rich Demoturds. Besides, John Legend is just a Turd.

The dems own Dominion Voting Systems, “William E Kennard “Bill” a former ambassador to the EU who was appointed to that position by former President Barack Obama. In 2018, Dominion announced it had been acquired by its management team and Staple Street Capital”
So the dems owned Dominion voting machines and run them as well.

It’s true. John is a hypocrital scumbag. I got kicked off Twitter for writing how disgusting his wife is. She can write nasty things about Melania; but I can’t say what a poor excuse of a human being she is.

I cant stand John Legend nor any other demoncRat celebrity who publicizes their personal political views against President Trump. Their job is to entertain NOT to instill bias that divides people.

Has it ever occurred to the political parties the millions spent on these
elections we could have begun to eliminate world poverty, but there
would be no talking points & ability to travel to evaluate the need!!!

Legend ought to put his money where his mouth is. How selfish to think that voting for another crooked democrat is more important than feeding the needy., My hats off to Mark Cuban. We don’t share the same politics but we share the same kindness and charities. I don’t care if I ever have to listen to another John Legend song. I know I sure won’t buy any of his music.

Legend is a typical Commie Dem pig – worried more about keeping his cronies in power than taking care of those in need.
