    Mark Cuban made a mistake Monday afternoon. A TMZ camera found him outside a restaurant in California, and the Mavs owner actually stopped and talked to the paparazzo. Quickly, Cuban was talking about the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia and its decision to deny service to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Although he likely didn't know it at the time, Cuban was about to stir up Trump Twitter, a group that's never met a stupid fight it didn't like. Here's what Cuban said with regard to the restaurant. “It’s a good question. You can make an argument on...

    In May 2011, a woman contacted the Portland Police Bureau to make an allegation against Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and one of the most visible figures in entertainment and sports. Her complaint? That Cuban had sexually assaulted her late one night at an Old Town nightclub. The woman told police she encountered Cuban in late April at the Barrel Room, at 105 NW 3rd Ave., and asked him to pose with her for a photograph. While they smiled for the camera, she claimed, he thrust his hand down the back of her jeans...

    DALLAS -- Mark Cuban says he believes Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green "owes the NBA an apology" for criticizing the use of the term "owner" in sports. Green made the statement last week as part of an Instagram post reacting to Houston Texans owner Bob McNair's controversial comment that the NFL "can't have inmates running the prison."

    Dallas Mavericks owner and businessman Mark Cuban has fired back at President Donald Trump’s criticism of NFL players who decline to stand during the national anthem, as well as the president’s decision to revoke a White House invitation to Golden State Warriors' star Stephen Curry. “If the president's going to say something condemning a person, an industry, a sport, then he's got to be able to take the blowback that's going to come back,” Cuban told NBC News in an exclusive interview for “Meet the Press.”

    Multi-billionaire tech titan and star of CNBC's "Shark Tank" Mark Cuban says that most people are underestimating the potential of artificial intelligence to change the world we live and work in. He's especially intimidated by the pace at which new technology advances: "It scares the s--- out of me," says Cuban, speaking to Ozy Fest conference attendees in New York City. "However much change you saw over the last 10 years with the iPhone, over the last 20 years with the Internet, over the last 30 years with PC's, etc., that is nothing. Nothing!" Cuban says.

    Three men carrying false identification were denied access to the federal courthouse in downtown Miami Thursday. They attempted to enter at multiple vehicle check-points until security guards recognized one of the men and immediately contacted deputies from the U.S. Marshals Service. The men used badges that resembled those from three different federal agencies, including a U.S. Marshal badge, but within seconds of examining the badges, security guards knew they were fraudulent. Once the men were detained, officers searched their vehicle and discovered other fraudulent law enforcement clothing. One man was arrested and could face charges by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,...

    <p>Somehow, the United States has to learn to relax.  We just finished the long and jangling roller coaster ride of the 2016 presidential election, and the media are already fulminating about the 2020 matchup with Trump.</p> <p>Left to right: Mark Cuban, Andrew Cuomo, and Elizabeth Warren.  Cuban hasn't a chance, because Americans don't like a candidate with a prognathic jaw who leads with his chin.  Cuomo is a loser because he has the personality of a rodent dragging a slice of pizza along a subway platform, and Warren's out because voters will recognize her as one of those social-worker types who couldn't organize a family between two rabbits – and besides, she's forever stuck with the nickname Fauxcahontas, and ten to one Trump would mock her with a whoo, whoo, whoo war dance on the stage at the debates.</p>

    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 wasn’t interested in taking all of his calls. He’s not smart enough to run for president!” The billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks and investor on ABC’s “Shark Tank” responded simply, “LOL.” An hour later, Cuban tweeted that he didn’t know what triggered the president’s comment, saying, “But isn’t it better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern?” Follow...

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban generated national headlines this week when he showered praise on Donald Trump's presidential campaign. His comments caused some people on social media to cheer the idea of Cuban joining Trump's presidential ticket, should the real-estate magnate win the Republican nomination. So on Thursday, Business Insider reached out to Cuban — via his Cyber Dust app — to ask if he would consider running for vice president if asked by Trump, a fellow billionaire. "Would I consider?" Cuban responded. "Yes."

    As the radical left organizes obstructions of airport terminals to protest President Donald Trump’s executive order enacting new security measures for travelers visiting from turbulent countries, few appear equally outraged that his predecessor, Barack Obama, issued a similar directive specifically targeting Cubans. During his last week in office, President Obama repealed a long-standing executive order known as “Wet Foot/Dry Foot,” which allowed all Cubans legally touching U.S. soil to stay here illegally. The objective of the executive order was to give sanctuary to Cubans risking their lives on makeshift vessels trying to sail to the United States and escape the...

    Sen. Ted Cruz told Washington, DC radio host Larry O’Connor Wednesday that Donald Trump is filling his cabinet with “all-star” conservatives. The Texas Republican noted that Republicans have been handed a “historic opportunity” to do a “great deal of good” in repealing “the disaster that is Obamacare.” “It was one of the fundamental reasons why I ran for the Senate and promised the people of Texas that I would fight everyday to repeal Obamacare,” he continued. “I cannot tell you how gratifying it is to see us on the verge of delivering on that promise.” Cruz then pointed to the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) issued the following statement after the Obama administration today failed to exercise its veto to defeat a discriminatory anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations Security Council: "For eight long years, the Obama administration has worked systematically to undermine the nation of Israel. They actively worked to defeat Prime Minister Netanyahu, and illegally used U.S. taxpayer funds to do so. Never has there been a more anti-Israel Administration, and today's United Nations vote is the culmination of their systemic agenda to weaken Israel and strengthen its enemies. "I agree with the senior Israeli...

    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: “He’s who we put our hopes and dream with. Now it is easier because we haven’t played a game yet. No reason to rush to judgment or come to any conclusions now. Let’s see what happens starting January 21st and we’ll go from there. I hope he’s a superstar.” This is an abrupt reversal for...

    I shall continue to cherish, relish, enjoy, celebrate the death and passing of worthless brute, Fidel Castro It was about 1:00 a.m., Saturday night, when my wife woke me up to tell me of the passing of Fidel Castro. As I was still half-sleep, and in lieu of the fact that, in our wishful ways, we, the Cuban-Americans in exile, had killed Castro many times over in the past, the “Cry Wolf” syndrome kicked-in as a ‘defense mechanism’ to spare me the emotional roller coaster, which had made us, time and time again, go from exhilarating highs to lugubrious downs...

    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.
