A day after tweeting, then deleting an attack on President Trump, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has found a new way to troll the 45th president of the United States, calling himself the 46th president of the United States.
While participating in the Celebrity Game, a part of the NBA’s All-Star festivities in New Orleans, Cuban donned this jersey on his way to the floor:

Cuban did not get shy about letting the world know why he wore that particular number:
Source says Mark Cuban to wear 46 in Celebrity Game in response to President Trump tweeting he’s “not smart enough to run for president!”

I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn’t interested in taking all of his calls.He’s not smart enough to run for president!

Cuban’s name has received a lot of mention in political circles as a potential candidate for the Democrats in 2020. Cuban initially backed Trump, once referring to him as the “best thing to happen to politics in a long, long, time.” Then, a year later, after the media began turning against Trump, so did Cuban.
Now that the media has launched a massive campaign of lies and more lies against Trump, Cuban seems more than comfortable standing right beside them. So, wherever the media is on an issue, there you will find Mark Cuban, a man who owns a basketball team but apparently not an original political or policy thought of his own.
