The hair dares are flying as the end of an airtight presidential election draws near.
First, President Barack Obama’s top campaign aide David Axelrod vowed to go on cable television and shave off his mustache of 40 years if Obama loses Pennsylvania, Minnesota, or Michigan.
Now Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is putting forth a challenge involving the most remarked upon head of hair in the United States in recent memory — Donald Trump’s.
Cuban, appearing on the Fox affiliate in Dallas
, said on Thursday, “The offer he made for $5 million, that was one of the dumbest things ever. But I thought about responding to him, maybe if I put up a million or two million, if he'll shave his head?"
Trump recently challenged Obama to release his college transcripts and passport application in exchange for a donation of $5 million to the charity of the president's choice. The challenge was criticized and then swallowed up in the news surrounding Hurricane Sandy.
"Donald, you shave your head, $1 million to any charity you want,"
said Cuban, directly addressing the camera.
Trump, who is usually extremely active on Twitter, has not responded.
Trump, if he agreed, might have to shave off the source of a longstanding New York mystery.
