Hillary Clinton supporter Mark Cuban has been given a front and center seat at the debates for no other reason than to troll, taunt and intimidate Donald Trump because Hillary Clinton can’t handle Trump on her own. Which also translates in Cuban’s lack of faith in Hillary’s abilities to be Commander and Chief. Perhaps Mark Cuban is the chosen one to be the coaching voice whispering to Hillary in her earpiece. After all, it has been proven she does wear one.
It was just one year ago July 28, 2015 that Mark Cuban praised Donald Trump by saying the Republican presidential candidate was “probably the best thing to happen to politics in a long long time.” Cuban went on to say “He gives honest answers rather than prepared answers. This is more important than anything any candidate has done in years.”
Two days later, on July 30, 2015 Business Insider reached out to Cuban to ask if he would consider running for vice president if asked by Trump, a fellow billionaire. “Would I consider?” Cuban responded. “Yes.”
The, almost one year to the day later, Mark Cuban comes out at a Hillary Clinton rally in Pittsburgh where he said, “I am ready to vote for the American Dream. I am ready to tell the world that I am here to endorse Hillary Clinton.”
I just happened to be watching that event and when Cuban started running his mouth, I saw an opportunistic sell-out who was probably butt-hurt that Donald Trump didn’t tap him for VP. While he “claimed” he would not accept the offer, why would he even bother saying he would consider it. That just doesn’t make sense to me.
Mark Cuban knows Hillary Clinton has extremely lucrative ties and connections in the Washington Establishment and with the DC elites, he IS a businessman and would benefit FAR more from a relationship with Hillary than he would with Donald Trump who wants to put an end to all the financial game playing in DC.
To support my theory that Cuban is a complete sell-out to Hillary Clinton and likely funded by The Clinton Foundation, following the FBI’s release of its Clinton email investigation summary report just before Labor Day, Mark Cuban claimed on Twitter that he read the entire FBI release and it “clears Hillary Clinton 100pct.” When in fact, It does nothing of the sort. In fact, it all but certainly implicates her beyond all doubt as a willing and eager participant in a premeditated and serial criminal abuse of classified information. Mark Cuban could not have possibly read the release, he was merely going off the typical quotes spewed by team Clinton.
So how could Mark Cuban benefit from endorsing Hillary?
Let’s take a look at the track record of Mark Cuban and see if you come to the same conclusion that I have.
The self-made billionaire defended Donald Sterling who in April 2014, Sterling was banned from the NBA for life and fined $2.5 million by the league after private recordings of him making controversial and racial comments that were made in the privacy of his own home were made public.
Mark Cuban then jumped into the Trayvon Martin controversy when he said that “We’re all prejudiced in one way or another. If I see a black kid in a hoodie, and it’s late at night, I’m walking to the other side of the street.”
Somehow Cuban emerged from his own insider-trading trial unscathed then went on to blast the U.S. government and lead prosecutor Jan Folena after the verdict, saying the government had tried to bully him. Most likely, this is yet another score he is hoping to settle.
Most recently, Mark Cuban took to Twitter to taunt his former would-be-running-mate prior to the upcoming Presidential Debate to taunt Mr. Trump with this tweet:
To which Mr. Trump responded with this classic Facebook post in true Trump style:
Of course Gennifer Flowers later chimed in with this tweet:
Personally, I thought the response from Donald Trump was well deserved. Hillary Clinton bought and paid for that can of worms when she gave Mark Cuban a seat front and center during the debate. That was nothing more than her lame attempt at psychological warfare, which has turned out to be an obvious FAIL.
Mark Cuban took that can of worms and opened it with mach force with his taunting post on Twitter. Donald Trump simply did what he is notorious for doing and he responded in kind in a way that would even the playing field. After all, he is fair like that – it doesn’t matter if it’s a man, woman, Gold Star mom, or most importantly, his main political rival.
