Billionaire NBA Owner Gives President Trump a “C-” Grade so far

Mark Cuban, the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, has been making the rounds in the media of late, he was on Fox News with Tucker Carlson earlier this week, and on Friday morning he appeared on CNN’s New Day with Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo.

Did CNN have Cuban on to talk about basketball, or the business community, or how to make money in a boom or bust market? Nope. They had Cuban on to talk about Donald Trump. Why?

Why not?

Cuban has been a vocal critic of President Trump, though his criticisms have thus far focused mostly on his temperament and his character, which Cuban seems to despise. Given all of Cuban’s criticisms it might surprise you to hear what grade he gave the Trump administration…

I call it ‘Political Chemotherapy.’

One of my friends, who I always thought was really smart, I’m not saying he’s dumb, but [he] had a different viewpoint on why he voted for Trump. I didn’t expect him to vote for him. He said ‘Mark, I’ve voted for politicians my entire life.’

He’s in his 50s. ‘Do you know what the definition of insanity is? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. So I voted for Donald Trump. Is he poisonous in a lot of respects? Yeah, this is out chemotherapy. We hope he’s going to change the political system.’

And if that’s the way you’re evaluating Donald Trump, he’s doing a phenomenal job.
