In an interview with “Extra,” billionaire and “Shark Tank” investor Mark Cuban said Donald Trump has gotten stupider since running for president.
“You know what? It’s rare that you see someone get stupider before your eyes, but he’s really working at it,” Cuban said. “You have to give him credit. It’s a difficult thing to do, but he’s accomplished it.”
Cuban explained that he is no fan of Ted Cruz, and was initially helping Trump to stop the Texas senator from snagging the GOP nomination. After a while, however, Cuban grew tired of Trump’s inability to understand important policy issues.
“At some point you’ve got to start learning and understanding the issues, you know?” Cuban said. “Donald has been at this a year, but you don’t look at him and say, ‘Wow, he’s gotten so much smarter on this topic or that topic.’ In fact, you look at him and say, ‘What the hell are you talking about?’ And so, that’s not good for America.”
Trump’s intellect, or lack thereof, isn’t the only thing Cuban has mocked lately. Citing information released in the latest campaign finance report from the Trump campaign, the Dallas Mavericks owner tweeted that Trump simply doesn’t have the cash necessary to fund a presidential election.
Earlier this month, Cuban poked fun at Trump’s lousy business sense: “He’d get kicked out of ‘Shark Tank’ so fast, it would make your head spin.”
The two haven’t spoken in a month — since Cuban started picking on him.
