You’ve got to love the honesty of billionaire Mark Cuban, who has said to have a “love-hate relationship” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump—and the Cubes let it be known in a big way during a recent interview with Business Insider.
The Dallas Mavericks owner and Shark Tank investor said this about The Donald, via BI:
“There’s that guy who’ll walk into the bar and say anything to get laid. That’s Donald Trump right now to a T. But it’s all of us who are going to get f—–,” Cuban said during an interview at theSkyBridge Alternatives (SALT) Conference in Las Vegas on Thursday night.
“We go way back, and it’s a love-hate relationship,” he said when conference organizer Anthony Scaramucci asked Cuban about the Republican presidential candidate.
He continued: “Everybody’s got that friend that you just shake your head at. He’s that guy who’d get drunk and fall over all the time, or just says dumb s— all the time, but he’s your friend.”
WHOA! So Cuban is basically saying that Trump is that jackass buddy who didn’t know how to mack at bars, would drink to try and help his mack, and, when it didn’t work, just turned into a sloppy mess that everyone then had to take care of.
Never one to hold back, Cuban also had some advice for Democratic presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton on how to campaign against Trump—and it includes getting a guy like, shocking, Mark Cuban!
“I would get a vice-presidential candidate who’s someone like me who would just throw bombs at Donald,” he said. “And I would be like, ‘Donald, I like you. We’re friends, but you’re a goddamn airhead.'”
Trump might be too much to have as our country’s next Commandor in Chief, but a V.P. in Mark Cuban might not be so bad.
