As the presidential election heats up, Hillary Clinton’s billionaire supporters are joining her on the campaign trail to make fun of Donald Trump.

Yesterday in Omaha, Nebraska, Clinton campaigned with billionaire Warren Buffet, who has spent nearly a decade urging Democrats to raise his taxes.

He mocked Trump for failing to release his tax returns, and filing for bankruptcy.

“I’ve really never known another businessman that brags about his bankruptcies,” he said. “I mean, and to tell you the truth, why not? I mean, it’s his claim to stardom. I don’t know anybody else that’s had six bankruptcies, but there he is.”

He also ridiculed Trump for listing his company on the New York Stock Exchange in 1995 and losing his investors’ money.

“If a monkey had thrown a dart at the stock page, the monkey on average would have made 150 percent,” he said. “But the people that believed in him, that listened to his siren song, came away losing well over 90 cents on the dollar. They got back less than a dime.”

Clinton also campaigned with billionaire Mark Cuban, giving him the stage to mock Trump.

“Donald, initially, I really hoped he would be something different, that as a businessperson, I thought there was an opportunity there,” he said. “But then he went off the reservation and went batshit crazy.”

Cuban boasted that his reality TV show “Shark Tank” was more successful than Trump’s show “The Apprentice” and called him a “jagoff.”

“You know what we call a person like that — the screamers, the yellers, the people that try to intimidate you? You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh?” he asked. “A jagoff. Is there any bigger jagoff in the world than Donald Trump?”

At the DNC convention, Hillary Clinton invited billionaire Michael Bloomberg to taunt Trump on his business record.

The former mayor of New York, who ran as an independent warned Americans to stay away from Trump.

“Trump says he wants to run the nation like he’s run his business,” Bloomberg said. “God help us.”

Bloomberg cited Trump’s “well-documented record” of bankruptcies and lawsuits as proof that he was a failure at business.

“I’m a New Yorker, and New Yorkers know a con when we see one!” he cried.

Bloomberg urged Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton, calling her the “responsible choice” in the election.

“The bottom line is: Trump is a risky, reckless, and radical choice,” he said. “And we can’t afford to make that choice.”
