Mark Cuban trolls Trump with hilarious NBA All-Star ‘voter fraud’ conspiracy

Published

on

Billionaire hedge funder and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took a swipe at newly-sworn in Republican Pres. Donald Trump on Thursday by saying that a rival team’s player made the cut for the 2017 NBA All-Star game due to “voter fraud.”

Mediaite.com said that Cuban was speaking to the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram when he began to slyly make fun of Trump’s obsession with his popular vote loss, which the new president has repeatedly blamed on “illegal voters” and “vote fraud” — charges that are not borne out by evidence.

This year, the players picked to start in the 2017 All-Star game have been odd choices given that they have only been on the court sporadically throughout the season.

Mediaite’s Joe DePaulo wrote that Cuban “referenced Trump’s unsubstantiated voter fraud claims by mentioning the four NBA All-Star ballots cast for Golden State Warriors backup center JaVale McGee. McGee seldom sees playing time, which makes the All-Star votes for him difficult to explain.”

Cuban told the Star-Telegram that he has an answer.

“There must have been voter fraud,” Cuban said. “Because I would have bet JaVale McGee really got three million, and him and [little-used Mavericks backup center] A.J. Hammons probably split that. I know I was registered with five different teams, and I’m not eligible to vote.”

He went on to mock Trump’s “investigation” into the alleged 3 million illegal voters who cost him the popular vote by saying, “I’m calling for an executive investigation and I’m going to sit down with (NBA commissioner) Adam Silver and we’re going to get to the heart of this, I truly believe. If we can’t protect the integrity of All-Star voting, this league has serious problems. I think Space Ghost even got a vote in there.’’

Cuban was one of Donald Trump’s harshest critics during the 2016 campaign, but abruptly lowered his profile with regards to Trump after the November election. However, it appears that the Mavericks owner can’t resist poking a little fun at the chief executive.

Bill Barr denies giving the order to gas protesters for Trump photo-op

Published

on

America's top law enforcement office on Friday denied giving the highly-controversial order to gas protesters prior to a photo-op with President Donald Trump holding a Bible.

"Attorney General William Barr says law enforcement officers were already moving to push back protesters from a park in front of the White House when he arrived there Monday evening, and he says he did not give a command to disperse the crowd, though he supported the decision," The Associated Press reports.

"Barr’s comments in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday were his most detailed explanation yet of what unfolded outside the White House earlier this week. They come after the White House and others said repeatedly that the attorney general ordered officers to clear the park," the AP reported. "Shortly after officers aggressively pushed back demonstrators, President Donald Trump — accompanied by Barr, Pentagon leaders and other top advisers — walked through Lafayette Park to pose for a photo at a nearby church that had been damaged during the protests."

"I have said it before and I will say it again now: the GOP must not tolerate racism. Of any kind. At any time," his son, George P. Bush, the Texas Land Commissioner posted on Twitter.

He urged local GOP officials in Texas to resign for sharing racist posts on Facebook.

Jeb Bush praised the post.

"Proud of my son," he posted on Twitter.

"Are other Republican elected officials stepping up?" he wondered.
