Business Insider: Don't be surprised if Mark Cuban runs for president

Analysis by Madison Hall Nov 29, 2023, 11:08 AM MST

On Tuesday, longtime Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban shocked the sports world after reportedly selling a "majority stake" of the team to Miriam Adelson, wife of the late casino magnate, Sheldon Adelson, for approximately $3.5 billion.

The transaction was reported just one day after Cuban confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that he's leaving ABC's hit reality television show, "Shark Tank," after the upcoming 16th season.

Frankly, Cuban's recent moves are perplexing — being the owner of the basketball team and later becoming one of the faces of "Shark Tank" are pretty much the two sole things that's turned him into a household name.

Prior to purchasing the Mavericks at the turn of the 21st century from the son of failed presidential candidate Ross Perot, Cuban was realistically much more known for becoming a billionaire after selling "Broadcast.com" to Yahoo for more than $5 billion worth of company shares just before the dot-com bubble burst in what Fortune magazine previously called one of the "5 worst Internet acquisitions of all time."

I have a hunch that another Trump loss will cause much of his base to check out of politics

A lot of these people were not interested in politics until Trump started talking their racist, shallow language. I really think it will be so discouraging for them if Trump loses, they will just check out, as there really is no one currently as weird and as hateful as Trump to fill those massive clown shoes.

Trump's REJECTION of Constitutional Oath BACKFIRES in his FACE

I think this was a epic mistake for Trump. As Chris Christie says, Dems will be talking about Trump saying he didn't take an oath on the Constitution relentlessly, up until the election.
