Skip to comments.Trump Disses ‘Not Smart Enough’ Mark Cuban, Sparking New Feud (White House thinks he may run 2020)
Posted on 02/12/2017 2:26:22 PM PST by drewh
Very early Sunday morning, Donald Trump took to Twitter to once again let loose. This time, Mark Cuban was in the crosshairs.
I know Mark Cuban well, POTUS tweeted. He backed me big-time but I wasnt interested in taking all of his calls. Hes not smart enough to run for president!
The billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks and investor on ABCs Shark Tank responded simply, LOL.
An hour later, Cuban tweeted that he didnt know what triggered the presidents comment, saying, But isnt it better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern?

The Post reports that the White Houses biggest fear is that Cuban, a billionaire businessman, would run because he can appeal to Republicans and independents. Another WH insider went on to say, Hes not a typical candidate. He appeals to a lot of people the same way Trump did.

The source added, If you believe in the Trump revolution, you can believe a candidate like Mark Cuban could win an election. And Mark is the kind of guy who would drop half a billion dollars of his own money on the race.
ROFLMAO!!! Mark Cubin: ‘DUMB CLUCK’!!!
Took an hour for him to get back with a life-line comment?
Cuban lucked out when he sold his website to the suckers at Yahoo for $1 billion.
Since then, he has been a failure at everything. Failure with the Mavericks, failure on Dancing with Stars, failure in politics.
He needs to go back to selling garbage bags to his neighbors.
Cubin comes off as a very rich brat. He’s the type
that got his azz kicked every once in awhile in
his own crowd just because.....
I do not know why Trump did this. It was kinda dumb in my view. Cuban is liked because of shark tank no need to do this. Why pick a fight?
Dumb Cluck - a 1950s term. Our Donald is so New York old school. Why I love him!
I’ve finally come to the conclusion that this is just one more time of Trump being Trump. Doesn’t make much sense to us, but it is how he is made. Kinda like a few months ago “NATO is irrelevant” , now it is important. I think we just have to judge him on what he does and not put too much importance on what he says. Which is kinda sad, but I’ll take performance over words.
Trump has not out a foot wrong since he entered the political arena... And this is no misstep.
He knows he would CRUSH Cuban, along with Pocohantus Warren.
He’s baiting the. Into the fight ! The man is 5 steps ahead of every other politician
> Why pick a fight? <
I’ve got to agree. If Cuban had recently said anything against Trump, then Trump certainly needs to punch back. But this seems to be a shot at Cuban out of nowhere.
We here at FR give Trump a lot of leeway. But this sort of thing will eventually cause some of Trump’s less solid supporters to start wondering about him. That’s not a good thing.
How sure are we that Donald made those tweets.? All it would take is a very similar looking fake account with a space in it or a hacker who obtained his password at the WH. Maybe someone on the inside like those 3 Muslim security risks that were just fired. We know how much the leftists love to sow discord and create friction to divide and conquer. I'm just sayin' I don't take much of what the MSM says with any credibility because they've proven that they are one of the American people's worst enemies. Their owners need to be destroyed along with their $hitcan publications and replaced with truth in reporting agencies.
Sounds like you agree if it was him it was a bad idea? More and more I think he needs to be more Judicious about the tweets. They are a great tool but on the face of it this was just silly.
Jobs, jobs and more jobs.
GIANT fence between Mexico and the USA. It won't discourage young Mexican men but it WILL discourage Mexican women. Men won't want to go where their women aren't.
Punish SEVERELY American companies who hire illegals. Bingo!
first time offense: $10,000 fine
second offense: $50,000 fine
third offense: PRISON time and $100,000. fine. Americans won't like that since it hits them in their weakest spot: the wallet.
first time offense: $10,000 fine
second offense: jail time and same fine.
third offense: PRISON time and $50,000. fine. Mexicans won't like that since it destroys any profit/reason for crossing the Line.
Trump seems to need a pinata of the week.
Last week it was Arnold, Alec Baldwin before that.
Donalds unexplained motivations seem to be all baked in the cake.
what’s funny is this clown thinks a white male could run as a democrat..he has too much white privelege for those nuts
“Trump seems to need a pinata of the week”
Well jeez if that’s true we have a problem.
If he is a real Cuban,Trump will SMOKE him!
There ought to be a sit com for straight white Democrat males: my son Bozo.
One of Shrillary's errors, all said, was that she TOTALLY left out the Democrat males in her tirades and promises.
Another: she spoke to young people, who are the worst voters.
Another: She spoke to Latinos who are very conservative in every respect but will ALWAYS go for the free tacos, no matter who is speaking.
Another: many folks noted the ABSENCE of BillyGoat who SHOULD have been hollering from every rooftop: VOTE FOR MAH WIFE; SHE'S THE BEST!
