Mark Cuban on Donald Trump: "It's rare that you see someone get stupider before your eyes..."

and oh, there is so much more:


In an interview with Extra, Cuban said, "It's rare that you see someone get stupider before your eyes, but he's really working at it...You have to give him credit. It's a difficult thing to do, but he's accomplished it."


http://sportsday.dallasnews.com/dallas-mavericks/mavericks/2016/06/21/mavs-owner-mark-cuban-donald-trump-rich-says-campaign

(FTR, Cuban maybe be an asshole but he is a likable asshole that seems to have some good sense)

Now Cuban has been throwing shade at trump for months, and the shade gets darker and and darker but here's my thing.

Donald Trump never responds to him.

Trump responded to Hillary during her foreign policy speech, he traded insults on Twitter with Elizabeth Warren.

Trump tossed out all sorts of nonsense (and maybe some things that weren't nonsense at all) at his Republican opponents...

But Mark Cuban tosses bombs out at him and he NEVER, to my knowledge, has responded to ANYTHING that Cuban has ever said...

Why is that?

Inquiring minds DO want to know...

1. I don't know the answer to your question

But it's a damn good one.

2. Actual wealthy people KNOW their circles well...

...who's smart, who's an idiot, how much money each other has.

Cuban has called him out on all these things in the last three weeks and Zircon Don hasn't said so much as “boo” to him.

Because folks like Cuban, or a Warren Buffett or the Koch Brothers—real, actual BILLIONAIRES could dime his dumb *ss out in a Cleveland Minute. Real ballers will call out a pretender, and he's on the verge of either getting dimed out surreptitiously as reporters are digging into his finances, or by p*ssed off, actually -monied peers who wish to keep his stench at arm's length—and who generally hate him for being the uncultured lout who giddily crop-dusts his way through their white-tie and tails events no one seems to know who invited him to.

More from Mark Cuban on Drumpf:

“"The best way to describe Donald right now -- and again, I like the guy -- is he's like the guy who will walk into the bar and say anything" to go home with someone, Cuban said.

-------------------------------------

"I know what I'm good at, and I know what I'm not good at. I'm not so sure Donald knows what he's not good at," the 57-year-old said, noting that Trump's skills include licensing his name. "He's good at that. Whether or not that's made him a billionaire, I don't know. He's not transparent enough for us to actually know."

Cuban cited Trump's real estate business as successful, but found little value in his steak ventures: "You're not gonna make big bucks, no matter what," he said of the brand.

"He just doesn't have the ability to say no if someone's going to write him a check," Cuban added. "And I think that's a huge problem."

He also charged that he's wealthier than Trump – and said he's willing to bet on it.

"The reason I know is when you file your federal election campaign reports, you have to list all your cash and liquid securities and bonds – you have to list them one by one," Cuban said. "So we know without any question that as of May 27, Donald doesn't have more than $165 million in cash and securities and bonds. And trust me, I've got a lot of more than that in cash, securities, and bonds."

So Cuban, who called out Trump's shameless check-chasing

4. Hey, Chitown...

Good to see you.

I don't know. Could be because he is an pompous asshole that just loves to push women around. As if!

He is just one terrified bully that threatens women. shiver shiver shiver...lol. He can't possibly take on a man, he is terrified 'cause he can't even take on us silly women.We make him look like the fool he is.



That is my take and I am standing with it.

8. He pushed arund the likes of Rubio, Bush, Cruz

so while I think that Trump likes to push around women, I don't think this is about that...after all, he had no problems responding to Ted Cruz during the primaries.

9. I don't think that's rare at all.

In fact, it's quite common that people can appear somewhat more intelligent than they really are for a short period. On greater exposure, the act wears thin.

12. As Alluded To Earlier...

He's not touching Cuban because Cuban has the wherewithal and the mindset to absolutely freaking bury the Yammering Yam. Drumpf doesn't tend to hit back at MEN who have more money than he does. That's the common denominator as Lower Manhanannite rightly pointed. What's he going to call Mark Cuban, a loser?

Thanks for posting that article.

13. I agree with you about Trump and women but

remember, Trump hasn't exactly gone after Meg Whitman either (to my knowledge) and Whitman has said things about Trump almost as bad as Cuban (although Whitman hasn't been out there as much).

16. True, and to Your Point

Whitman doesn't have a TV show/isn't a celebrity like Rosie O'Donnell, et al. Drumpf doesn't get any attention for going after folks who aren't quite famous, so it's not worth his time. He would be noticed for going after Cuban, but the coward won't blow his bloviating bluster in that direction because he'd be de-pantsed and he knows it.

I keep asking myself if a psychiatrist, if asked to do a workup on Drumpf, would find his mind to be extremely complicated and a maze of weirdly-connected circuits of if he or she would find Drumpf incredibly simple. I think it would be one extreme or the other but I'm not sure which way that analysis would go.

23. Agreed - I just was responding to the idea that Trump doesn't push back to weathy men - but

it's possible that in Trump's mind, he really believes that Romney is "poorer" and "a loser" so he can push back.

15. How is that rare? It's super common actually. The moment people put agenda ahead of reason or

 

bias in place of honesty those people have made the active decision to dumb themselves down. If it was just Trump life would be grand. But it's not just Trump.

18. This led me to ask the question. Why doesn't Trump own a sports team?

Wouldn't his ego require him to own one? And of course the name would have Trump in it.

19. He Did Own One.

and he single-handedly fucked up the USFL so bad that he ruined it. He's made overtures recently, such as with the Buffalo Bills, but other billionaires want nothing to do with this guy. Probably because (a) they know he doesn't have the money he says he does and (b) they know his business 'acumen' is a myth.

25. He preferred Trump against Cruz

and liked the fact that Trump was "shaking up" the political process but he has said the past few months that he would vote for Clinton if the election were held on whichever day he was asked...Cuban has never disliked Hillary, he did think that Hillary was damaged goods, though.

29. He Also Hates Ted Cruz' Fucking Guts

to the core. Not that this makes him unique in any way, but Cruz is Cuban's Senator and Cuban has never been shy about explaining that he thinks Cruz is a monumental asshole. I'm guessing that someone in Cuban's position has had opportunities to deal directly with The Cruz, so he may be speaking from personal experience.

27. Katrina Pierson was on CNN today, and Wolf Blitzer asked her about what Mark Cuban said.

Her response was to imply that Mark Cuban wishes he was Trump (and that Cuban probably wants to be president, too).

It seems obvious that Trump is jealous of Cuban; Cuban is a real billionaire. Unbelievably shallow...but then that's Trump!
