Mark Cuban’s mindless critique of President Trump

Original Article

Posted By: Pluperfect, 5/22/2020 4:45:55 AM

In an era when American politics is dominated by obnoxious loud mouths, it’s not surprising that Mark Cuban thinks he should have a big role. Cuban deems himself presidential timber, and has not ruled out running for president in 2024. Last night Cuban went on Sean Hannity’s program to question President Trump’s leadership. Cuban told Hannity: 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.’

Run for president as a Republican, Cuban, and see what you get from leftists (the innocent, one and the same media and dems). So, you own a team; that's a big comparison to the accomplishments of weak Trump. By the way, you're more like Christine Todd Whitman than Donald Trump; we don't want you.

It's not paranoia if they're really out to get you... and there is nothing wrong with calling the little America haters out on it!

The only thing Mark Cuban is worried about is his money trail. You know if this man had to endure the character assassination that President Trump has, he might be more understanding. His understanding comes with dollar signs. Plays the victim card is just a typical statement by a liberal. Let me get this straight with you, Mark Cuban, every person has a right to clear up their name.

Cuban is seething with jealousy that it could've been him as president, not Trump.

The biggest problem with Cuban is all the hosts that give him time.There he sits in his mansion and the conversation is truly mindless. A very wealthy man because of capitalism blabbering away left wing nonsense criticizing a true American President that is fighting for us. Whenever he shows up in tv I switch channels .

IIRC from an interview last week, Cuban did say he wants to run as a republican. Maybe his running mate can be Mittens.

I don't mind Cuban, but I don't see any fight in him, He's somewhat like Romney. He would try to get along with the democrats, which would be a big mistake. The dems hate republicans, and really hate Trump. The dems have nothing that a true conservative could agree with, or any American, or anyone with common sense..

Yet another mouth egoist who thinks because they are wealthy that they are qualified. This is not surprising. Consider all the members of Congress. How many are well qualified people? Biden was a successful Senator. Was Joe qualified. In "created equal" at Thomas' confirmation, Biden sounds like an idiot. Yet here he is, senile and running for president. It's absurd but there are many people like this.

Hannity needs to reinvent his show. He has to stop repeating the litany of facts over and over every night from his predictable script that he recites like saying the rosary...the monologue has to go. His audience gets it. Sean is hard working and good at what he does. However his message is old needs a new style and a new tone. Cuban is a smart guy makes some good point. Though he isn't consistent with his views and I haven't been able to figure him out or feel I can trust him yet.

Oh, one more comment. Mark Cuban trots around elitist as ever. He has his elitist buddies on Shark Tank and also is the owner of a basketball team. He loves the popularity and probably has people following him around with adoration. I can understand when someone wants to fix their reputation. I guess I have to ask myself would Mark Cuban really understand that with all of the adoration coming his way.

Mark doesn't seem to be interested in 'the facts' - 'the truth'- regarding President Trump who's been under siege by a 'leftist cabal' here in America since before he was elected. This nasty, hate-filled bunch are more interested in destroying him than they are the good of the American people. And this bunch is an ugly, reprehensible, smelly stain on the history of American politics and journalism.

Cuban is crazy jealous of President Trump. "President Trump" is even hard for Cuban to say. If I was a betting man, the reason Cuban is promoting Biden is because with Biden in office, it would open the door for Cuban to have more contact and business with the Chicoms in their technology. With Cuban, it has to be something financial because any other reason to support Biden makes no sense. This stick that Cuban cares is nonsense unless it is about his own self interest.

Cuban is a thin skinned greed head who got lucky and parlayed that wealth into more wealth. Because he gets to push around begging start up businesses on TV, he thinks he is some kind of moving and shaking oracle. Stick to what you are good at Cuban, surfing off the hard work of innovators. This huge bully would not last 6 months vs the adversary media PRESIDENT Trump has had to deal with since defeating their sure bet the butcher of Benghazi.

Throughout most of the nation, the curve of the coronavirus has been decisively flattened. The healthcare system has not only survived but also excelled, keeping more than 94% of confirmed infected patients alive, a number that will only increase as testing ramps up. That’s better than Britain’s National Health Service or the healthcare systems of France, Belgium, Canada, Italy, Spain, Ireland, or Sweden, among others. But there are limits to how quickly commercial and economic life can resume because no government snap of the fingers can restore life to the way it was.

Lee Smith’s article in Tablet, titled “How Russiagate Began With Obama’s Iran Deal Domestic Spying Campaign,” pieces together why President Obama warned then incoming President Donald Trump away from Michael Flynn. It explains why Flynn was investigated. It all fits. At the bottom of the Russian hoax story is a tale of narcissism: Hillary Clinton’s shock at losing the election, the media’s shock at being wrong and less capable of manipulation that they thought, and, importantly, Barack Obama’s shock that his priorities — all of them, but most of all the Iran Deal — would be swept away as so much ideological detritus.

New York- Hertz filed for bankruptcy Friday night, the latest victim of the sudden economic downturn sparked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The company has been renting cars since 1918, when it set up shop with a dozen Ford Model Ts, and has survived the Great Depression, the virtual halt of US auto production during World War II and numerous oil price shocks. By declaring bankruptcy, Hertz says it intends to stay in business while restructuring its debts and emerging a financially healthier company. "The impact of Covid-19 on travel demand was sudden and dramatic, causing an abrupt decline in the company's revenue and future bookings," said the company's statement.

China is currently transgressing the terms of its 1997 treaty over Hong Kong, which promised a “one country, two systems” settlement that preserved Hong Kong’s somewhat autonomous democratic institutions. These institutions guarantee rights to Hong Kongers and guard its common-law inheritance. China’s legislature in Beijing is preparing a new national-security law aimed at Hong Kong to prohibit and punish terrorism, foreign influence, and secession. By that, they mean demonstration, free speech, and a functioning democratic system with rights guaranteed to citizens. Meanwhile, Beijing’s loyalists installed in Hong Kong’s legislative council have been making open attempts at a putsch against the pro-democracy majority.

Then he would ask the new ambassador to point to his country. As the globe slowed, the new envoy would point to whatever country he was assigned — France, maybe, or Brazil. “Oh, no,” Mr. Shultz would say, spinning the globe again.

A University of Minnesota Law School professor, Francesco Parisi, has won a nearly $1.2 million defamation case against a woman who had falsely accused him of rape. In his blistering ruling on Tuesday, Hennepin County Judge Daniel Moreno wrote that Parisi’s former lover, Morgan Wright, had pursued an “untruthful narrative crusade,” and her “accusations were false, and made with malice.” It is believed to be the largest defamation judgement in Minnesota. The vast majority of the judgement, $814,514 is for economic losses, as well as reputational and emotional damages. Only $100,000 was for punitive damages. Parisi walked out of jail three years ago, his life in shambles.

Stay-home orders that extend too long could cause the U.S. “irreparable damage,” Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Friday. Strict crackdowns on large gatherings and other orders, such as for home quarantines, were needed when the coronavirus first hit the nation, but those rules can now begin to be lifted in many parts of the country, Fauci said during an interview on CNBC. “I don’t want people to think that any of us feel that staying locked down for a prolonged period of time is the way to go,” the member of the White House coronavirus task force said.

Every state and local politician who imposed lockdowns pursuant to the COVID-19 pandemic claimed their decisions were based on “the science.” In reality, they ignored the advice of leading epidemiologists, relying instead on statistical models produced by “experts” with histories of wildly inaccurate projections. The most notorious of these oracles was, of course, Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London, who claimed that coronavirus could kill 2.2 million Americans. Based on such apocalyptic predictions, combined with overcautious warnings from Beltway bureaucrats like Dr. Anthony Fauci, all but a few governors implemented economically destructive stay-at-home orders — despite the reservations of respected epidemiologists who questioned the logic of lockdowns from the beginning.

There are so many angles to the FBI-Michael Flynn imbroglio, and most have been covered in great depth across a divergent set of viewpoints. But one aspect that has not been covered, and that opens up a wider lens into FBI policy, is the fact that the FBI refuses to audiotape, much less videotape, interviews of witnesses or suspects such as Flynn. That policy is counterproductive and makes no sense in 2020. The FBI needs to take itself out of the J. Edgar Hoover era and align itself with modern law enforcement best practices.
