In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday, billionaire Mark Cuban excoriated President Donald Trump for “always playing the victim card” and blaming others for his problems and failures. 

“This is what really bothers me about the president: He’s the most powerful man in the world and he always plays the victim card: ‘The Dems are out to get me, the media is out to get me,'” the Dallas Mavericks owner said. “You’ve got to be the leader, you’ve got to be the strongest man in the game and he just hasn’t shown that strength.”

Hannity then interjected and echoed baseless allegations from the president and other Republicans that former President Barack Obama “spied” on the Trump transition team. 

“Who cares? He’s the most powerful man in the world! Be powerful, be a leader!” Cuban said of Trump. 

“He’s supposed to be the world’s best counterpunch. He hasn’t been able to knock anybody out. He just plays the victim,” Cuban added. 

 

Cuban, who has flirted with running for president, also excoriated Trump over his management style and desire for loyalty at all costs.

“I think that Donald doesn’t put the best people in place any longer. He did at the beginning and I was proud of him at the beginning, but now he just wants people who are loyal to him. That’s a problem and it’s created more problems in this pandemic,” Cuban said.
