Mark Cuban, the flashy billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, made a surprise stop here in his hometown to support Hillary Clinton and mock Donald Trump.
“Leadership is not yelling and screaming and intimidating,” Cuban said. “You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff,” using some local slang for an idiot.
“Is there any bigger jagoff in the world than Donald Trump?” he said as the crowd roared.
Cuban has been taunting Trump during the campaign, questioning whether he’s as rich as he says and criticizing his business skills.
Cuban met with John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman, in Brooklyn recently, and called on Thursday to talk about making a public endorsement, according to a campaign spokesman.
