Mark Cuban On The Three Ways Trump Is Failing As President

“It’s rare that you see someone get stupider before your eyes, but he’s really working at it”

Outspoken billionaire and host of TV’s “Shark Tank,” Mark Cuban has been very public with his feelings about President Donald Trump. In July 2015, he praised the then-candidate saying he was “probably the best thing to happen to politics in a long long time.” But by June 2016, he soured on Trump saying, “It’s rare that you see someone get stupider before your eyes, but he’s really working at it.” Cuban would go on to become a vocal #NeverTrump-er and supported Hillary Clinton in the presidential race.

Now that Trump has been in office nearly two months, Cuban sat down with CNN’s Jake Tapper and pulled no punches when asked about Trump’s presidency. Cuban believes that Trump lacks three major skill sets that are important in a president, saying he has “no leadership skills, no management skills, not very good communication skills.” Cuban believes that Trump’s poor leadership skills have created a negative culture in the White House which has led to a flood of press leaks.

In terms of Trump’s communication skills, Cuban thinks his inability to articulate any policy beyond the surface level is worrisome. “When it comes to communication skills, have you seen him answer any questions?” Cuban asked Tapper. “What’s the one topic you look at him and can say say ‘Boy he has in-depth knowledge’? And at some point you have to communicate an understanding of the issues. That’s where communication skills are critical.”

Cuban’s remarks come just a few days after he slammed Trump during a CNBC interview. In a panel discussion alongside car insurance marketplace The Zebra’s Adam Lyons, Cuban compared Trump to a dim-witted Ben Stiller character. “In terms of him personally, he’s the Zoolander president,” Cuban said referring to the 2001 comedy about the modeling industry. “His idea of efficiency is I would send him emails, his assistant would print it, he would write on it, and he would scan it. He doesn’t know how to use email.”

If you are totally ready to move on from Donald Trump, you're not alone. According to a report last April from the Wason Center National Survey of 2020 Voters, "President Trump will be the least popular president to run for reelection in the history of polling."

Yes, you read that right, "history of polling."

After three years on the sidelines, Colin Kapernick will be working out for multiple NFL teams on Saturday, November 16 at the Atlanta Falcons facility.

The former 49er quarterback who inflamed the culture wars by peacefully protesting against social injustice during the national anthem made the announcement on Twitter Tuesday.

Kaepernick is scheduled for a 15-minute on-field workout and an interview that will be recorded and sent to all 32 teams. The Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and Detroit Lions are expected to have representatives in attendance.

"We like our quarterback situation right now," Miami head coach, Brian Flores said. "We're going to do our due diligence."

NFL Insider Steve Wyche believes that the workout is the NFL's response to multiple teams inquiring about the 32-year-old quarterback. A league-wide workout would help to mitigate any potential political backlash that any one team may face for making an overture to the controversial figure.

Kapernick is an unrestricted free agent (UFA) so any team could have reached out to him. But it's believed that the interested teams are considering him for next season.

Earlier this year, Kaepernick and Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid reached a financial settlement with the league in a joint collusion complaint. The players alleged that the league conspired to keep them out after they began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016.

Before the 2019 season, Kaepernick posted a video of himself working out on twitter to show he was in great physical condition and ready to play.

Kaepnick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012 and the NFC Championship game in 2013.

He has the 23rd-highest career passer rating in NFL history, the second-best interception rate, and the ninth-most rushing yards per game of any quarterback ever. In 2016, his career to a sharp dive and he won only of 11 games as a starter.


In the category of "claims to fame nobody wants," the United States can now add "exporter of white supremacist ideology" to its repertoire. Super.

Russell Travers, acting director of the National Counterterrorism Center, made this claim in a briefing at The Washington Institute in Washington, D.C. "For almost two decades, the United States has pointed abroad at countries who are exporters of extreme Islamist ideology," Travers said. "We are now being seen as the exporter of white supremacist ideology. That's a reality with which we are going to have to deal."
