Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, took to an event on Saturday to officially announce his endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President.
It was just a few months ago and rumors were swirling about Cuban’s possible dip into politics this coming election. Famous for riding the thin line between both parties, Cuban was linked by some to be a Vice President option for both candidates.
But if you have followed Mark Cuban over the past weeks on social media, you obviously know he no longer rides that thin line as he has taken it upon himself to be one of the biggest voices against Donald Trump.
Saturday, in Pittsburgh, Mark Cuban made his endorsement of Hillary Clinton official while speaking at a campaign rally where CNN was on hand to report Cuban’s comments.
“I am ready to vote for a true leader, I am ready to vote for the American Dream. I am ready to tell the world that I am here to endorse Hillary Clinton.”
But of course, Cuban didn’t stop there as he had to take some more shots at Trump.
“You know what we call a person like that — the screamers, the yellers, the people that try to intimidate you? You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff,” said Cuban, a Pittsburgh native. “Is there any bigger jagoff in the world than Donald Trump?” (reports CNN).
Cuban did admit that he was ok with Trump at first, but then everything changed…
“Trump scares me,” Cuban said after speaking on behalf of Clinton and Tim Kaine, her vice presidential nominee. “Donald, initially, I really hoped he would be something different, that as a businessperson, I thought there was an opportunity there. But then he went off the reservation and went bats— crazy.” (reports CNN).

Cuban never fails to deliver some media worthy one-liners, especially when he gets on the topic of Donald Trump. If you need anymore Cuban input on the Republican candidate, just give his Twitter feed a glance at any moment.
Something tells me Cuban is just getting warmed up in his public shamming of Trump.
