CUBAN: 'I was dumb enough to think I would be able to talk people out of voting for Donald Trump'
Business Insider via Yahoo ^ | November 28, 2016 | Allan Smith

Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban recently laid out on his blog how he believes President-elect Donald Trump utilized the mainstream media to pull off a huge upset and win the election. Cuban added he was "dumb" for thinking he could convince people to not vote for the bombastic real-estate magnate.

In a post published earlier this month on Blog Maverick, Cuban said the Trump campaign was "a lot smarter and able to rally" mainstream media "haters" and turn them into Trump "believers and voters" in key states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.

"We were the bad guys," he wrote. "We didn't get it. We represented everything they wanted to change. We were the forces behind the corrupt media. The elites. The establishment. The suckers getting paid off by George Soros and foreign corrupt interests."

"I was dumb enough to think I would be able to talk people out of voting for Donald Trump by detailing what I thought were his weaknesses," he continued. "The Trump campaign had to be laughing at me and thanking me at the same time. I approached my choice of candidates by consuming information literally. That was my hammer and I tried to use it to make everything else look like a nail. I obviously was wrong."

He’s insulting people who voted for Trump.

Sort of like, “I’m sorry you were offended, but it’s your fault for being offended.”

“I thought I could educate Americans, but they are too stupid.”

Cuban gets it now. He probably wants in on the action now too. I don’t know, Mark. Your big mouth and eagerness to assist Crooked Hillary has most likely disqualified you from the Trump Train. Call us in four years, and we’ll talk.

"I approached my choice of candidates by consuming information literally. "

Iow's, he bought into all of the "fake news" that the mainstream media was shoveling.

That’s all I needed to read.

Yup. I’ll never watch The SHark Tank again, so long as that leftist suck-up Mark Cuban is on it.

I love that show. I will still be watching. But I have lost a lot of respect for Cuban. How could any smart entrepreneur support criminality?

The meetings with "non-supporters," like former Republican nominee and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, were examples of "kiss the ring and kiss my a-- meetings," Cuban wrote.

He added: "More importantly, they give President-elect Trump the satisfaction of watching those like me who campaigned vocally against him, bend over, and kiss his ring. Touche, President-elect Trump. Touche."

Excellent news. Puts an encouraging perspective on the Romney "vetting"

You were dumb to think that anyone who isn't stupid or insane would prefer Hillary. Thank God that F***ing psychotic Nazi Hate-Witch was defeated. The nation dodge a bullet.

Fairly honest self-reflection.
