Mark Cuban wants you to know that while he is not a liberal, he really, really does not like Donald Trump.
The billionaire Shark Tank star and owner of the Dallas Mavericks supported Hillary Clinton in last year’s Presidential Campaign because he thought “she would make the better president.” To Cuban, however, this was not about politics.
“Trump is an idiot,” Cuban told Daily Beast. “I’ll support a ham sandwich over an idiot.”
Cuban was not simply disparaging for disparaging sake. He laid out the very practical difficulties of having this particular “idiot” sitting in the Oval Office:
“I can fight attempts to regulate. I can lobby whatever. I can’t fight stupidity. I can’t stop a moron that didn’t think it prudent to read about the relationship between China and the DPRK. Or might drop bombs that causes a war because it was harder to figure out than he thought. We can change tax law. We can’t change stupid.”
We may not be able to change stupid, but we can vote it out in 2018 and 2020. Luckily, Democrats are giving us far better than a ham sandwich.
