Billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has made a sharp reverse, from being an attack dog for the Democrats to giving Donald Trump his full-throated endorsement.
Donald Trump is our No. 1 draft pick, Cuban told CNBC Wednesday. Sticking with the basketball metaphor, he explained: Hes who we put our hopes and dream with. Now it is easier because we havent played a game yet. No reason to rush to judgment or come to any conclusions now. Lets see what happens starting January 21st and well go from there. I hope hes a superstar.
This is an abrupt reversal for someone who taunted taunted Trump relentlessly. Before the election, Cuban predicted that if Trump wins, the stock market would tank and that his election would be the worst thing possible for Wall Street.
Now, Cuban is not only willing to give Trump a chance, hes also downplaying the importance of the president-elects Twitter rants. Twitter, he said, is merely a way to reach other celebs, other verified users, and reach the media.
In late November Cuban was spotted sitting in a New York coffee shop with Trump adviser and former Breitbart chief Steve Bannon. Cuban said this is not a topic for now.
What was that all about? the reporter pressed Cuban.
Coffee, Cuban answered.
Are the ratings for Cuban’s show tanking? Could that be what this is about?
The best thing this guy could do for the world is just shut the H up.
Sorry, Mark. You’ve shown that your judgment is questionable. I’m out.
Mark Cuban has always come across to me as someone Center-Right. He believes in hard work and the reward that comes with it. I think like a lot of people of his inclination, Trump was a huge turn off. But now that he is The Man, he probably figures its time to give him a chance.
Remember folks, Donald J Trump has been Buying and Selling Politicians his Whole life, he has dirt on ALL OF THEM, with that said, do not think for a second that his knowledge of wrongdoing ends at political figures, it Does NOT.
You will slowly see A lot of his detractors Fall right in line as soon as he has his meeting with them informing them of his knowledge, see Mark Cuban.
Don’t need him and his attempts to undermine the Republic.
Mark Cuban....giving new meaning to flip/flop.
Looks like the realization that not too many pay attention to what he says hit home....
The Dragon’s Den from England is a better show.
Sure beats anything Mark Levin has to say
so this moron is finally realizing no one is watching his Mavs?
This is how you want your government run? You sure about that?
I’m not going to let my support for DJT extending to wanting a government where the President has “dirt” on people and uses it to get and keep them in line. Sorry, not going there.
If this is an end state you’re good with, then I disagree.
Welcome aboard Mr. Cuban!
Cuban is insanely jealous of Trump and his venomous attacks against Trump are costing Cuban a lot of money and publlc good will.
Cuban already showed his true colors. His current Mr Nice Guy act is completely phony.
That's why the GOP loses. Because we don't fight to win.
There's no mercy in war.
Isn’t that a Canadian show?
I don’t trust anything this scumbag cuban says.
