WATCH: Mark Cuban Says That Trump Always Plays The Victim
Mark Cuban is the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and makes regular appearances on the ABC show, Shark Tank. The billionaire also frequently comments on the political issues of the day on a number of different networks.
Cuban tends to criticize politicians on both sides of the aisle and at one point hinted that he would consider running for President. During an appearance on Fox News last night, he was more than critical of Donald Trump accusing him of always playing the victim.
Sean Hannity became apoplectic when Cuban told him that he preferred Joe Biden to Trump. When asked why, the billionaire replied, “I think that Donald doesn’t put the best people in place any longer. He did at the beginning and I was proud of him at the beginning, but now he just wants people who are loyal to him that’s a problem and it’s created more problems in this pandemic.”
Cuban continued, “He can’t be blaming the victim all the — you know, Sean, this is what really bothers me about the president. He’s the most powerful man in the world and he always plays the victim card. ‘The Dems are out to get me, the media is out to get me.’ You’ve got to be the leader, you’ve got to be the strongest man in the game and he just hasn’t shown that strength.”
Hannity then screamed, “They spied on the guy! They spied on a candidate, his transition team, they spied on his presidency. Those are Bill Barr’s words, not Sean Hannity’s.”
The billionaire calmly retorted, “Who cares? He’s the most powerful man in the world. Be powerful, be a leader, set an example… He’s supposed to be the world’s best counterpunch, he hasn’t been able to knock anybody out, he just plays the victim. Look, I love the way you stand up, all this people that call him out, that’s a great thing, Sean, but the man has got to be a leader and he hasn’t shown that yet.”
