Trump critic Mark Cuban stays mum on sitdown with Steve Bannon
CNBC ^ | November 23, 2016 | Jacob Pramuk

Mark Cuban, one of Donald Trump's most vocal critics, met with the president-elect's key advisor Steve Bannon, according to reports.

They met Tuesday at the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in New York, according to TMZ, which first reported on the meeting and published a picture of the pair.

Asked whether he could confirm the meeting or give details on what was discussed, Cuban told CNBC that he would "have to pass."

The billionaire entrepreneur and Dallas Mavericks owner endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. He repeatedly criticized Trump in appearances on CNBC during the campaign.

Bannon will be Trump's chief strategist in his administration.

It was unclear what Cuban and Bannon would have discussed. Cuban told MSNBC in October that Bannon is "a lot smarter" than Trump, as some of Trump's campaign rhetoric would benefit Breitbart, a right-wing news site in which Bannon was previously chairman.

Disclosure: CNBC owns the exclusive off-network cable rights to "Shark Tank," which features Mark Cuban as a judge.

The media says everyone that met with Bannon is a Nazi, has that suddenly changed?

Cuban is just another billionaire Marxist who made his fortune, but doesn’t want you to make yours.

I knew him when . . and he does have a huge ego.

And it appears it’s gotten progressively worse (no pun intended)

Cuban wants to be the Dem candidate in 2020.

Because it wasn’t about himself. He’s all about getting the attention.

The media treat Cuban like he’s some sort of financial guru. He was a salesman that took his ideas from his employer and started his own gig. He sold his company to Yahoo before the tech bubble burst and got a crazy amount of money for it. Since then, he’s not done much of anything to increase his wealth. Therefore, I don’t consider him to be a financial guru. He’s a one trick pony that hit it lucky and big when he was younger.

I agree with you. I hate to say it because we are always labeled dumb but I’ve heard him many times and he’s just not anything close to a mental giant. And that’s being generous.

In 1999, Cuban and a partner were offered $5.7 Billion by Yahoo for a company with about $50 million in revenue. Yea! good for him. This was during the drunken dot.com craze before the burst.

Since then, Cuban’s net worth is about $3 billion. He’s not even close to keeping pace with the market. I certainly wouldn’t call him a financial guru. I call him one lucky salesman/bartender that stumbled upon a clueless Yahoo.

He really thinks the world wants to hear his every thought.

Cuban should spend more time trying to make his basketball a winner and less time on a loser like Hillary. Come to think of it his team is a loser just like Hillary. LOL
