Mark Cuban supports Donald Trump for president. But based on what he says you wouldn’t know it because he gives no appealing reason to vote for Trump.

In the course of few minutes, Cuban likened Trump to a drunk and a womanizer. He also said Trump once threatened to sue him because Cuban had claimed he was wealthier than the real estate mogul. Cuban is reportedly worth $3 billion. Trump famously claims he is worth over $10 billion dollars.

“Everyone has got that friend that you just shake your head at,” says Cuban. “He’s the guy at the bar who will say anything to get laid. That’s Donald Trump right now.”

“But it’s all of us who are going to get f**ked,” Cuban added.

And Cuban is supporting Trump.

Cuban said he describes Trump’s candidacy as “the Seinfeld candidacy” and says that Trump’s campaign so far has been about nothing. Cuban said Trump never really says anything about his issues, because his supporters don’t care about issues. But what Trump has tapped into, Cuban says, is that people don’t trust government. That’s why he’s got supporters, Cuban says.

“It was the Puffy Shirt, the Elaine Dance, the whatever,” says Cuban referring to names of Seinfeld episodes. “For Trump, it’s The Immigration episode, The Wall episode, The Jobs episode. His people don’t want to hear the details.”

As for the time Trump threatened his lawsuit, Cuban says it was over the fact that Cuban said his bank account was larger than the real estate mogul’s. Cuban told Trump, after the GOP frontrunner threatened to sue, that Cuban would share his bank account with Trump, as long as Trump would share his with Cuban. Cuban said he never heard another word about it.

“This is thing that Donald does, he threatens to sue people,” says Cuban. “And I like Donald.”

Imagine what people who don’t like Donald are likely to say during this campaign.
