Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, says he’s sick and tired of hearing President Donald Trump whine about how badly he’s treated by the media and playing “the victim card” despite the fact that he’s the most powerful man on the planet.
“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.
“He’s supposed to be the world’s best counterpunch. He hasn’t been able to knock anybody out. He just plays the victim.”

Cuban also noted that Trump doesn’t hire the most qualified people to serve in his administration, instead preferring those who will pledge their loyalty to him:
“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.”
Additionally, Cuban remarked that Trump has continued to dither and make the wrong steps regarding coronavirus:
“No one would take inventory of where all the PPE was around the country and because they wouldn’t present that market information, hospitals started hoarding and we didn’t know where the manufacturing sources were coming from, so we got into even more a greater short supply of PPE. The White House had the opportunity to fix that. They knew they could have fixed it, but they didn’t take the actual steps because no one was truly in charge.”
Hannity repeatedly tried to defend Trump during the interview, but Cuban was having none of it, commenting that both Biden and Trump “scare” him, but Trump scares him even more because he doesn’t seem to be in control of his administration.
Though Trump hasn’t yet responded to what Cuban said, it seems likely to expect he will before the day is out.
