Fox Business host Neil Cavuto got owned by billionaire Mark Cuban on Tuesday.
Mark Cuban isn’t afraid to tell it like it is and is even willing to criticize the candidate he supports unlike the mindless drones who stump for Donald Trump.
During an interview on Fox, Cuban answered questions and did not hesitate to set the record straight or outright school Cavuto.
“At some point, somebody has to govern,” Cuban began while discussing Trump’s media prowess and how that doesn’t make him qualified to lead the country. “At some point he would have to understand policy. At some point he would have to get into details.”
Indeed, while Trump is good at distracting the media he still has yet to demonstrate that he will be able to govern and make policy.
Cavuto claimed that Hillary Clinton isn’t talented enough to lead the country either, saying that she flip-flops and had a problem with her email. Cuban responded by conceding that Hillary is not the best at communicating with the media, but he defended her emails by pointing out that her private server was more secure than the government-issued one.
Later on, Cavuto brought up accusations that Hillary engaged in a pay-to-play scheme involving the Clinton Foundation and complained about Bill Clinton’s $250,000 speaking fees, which go to the Clinton Foundation.
Cuban slammed GE CEO Jack Welch for making the accusation in the first place because Welch failed to offer any evidence to back up his claims, and then shredded Cavuto’s issue with Bill Clinton by giving him a lesson on history and the free market.
Look. You have to ask yourself what’s the market for a former president giving a speech, right? So first of all, Ronald Reagan was paid more than a million dollars for speeches in 1989. He went to Japan and gave two speeches. Second of all, Bill Clinton made, I think it was $250K give or take, for a lot of speeches. I’ve made $250K for a bunch of speeches. For the most part, he gets paid a little more than I do, but the point is he was right inside the market. He wasn’t getting paid more or less than the market.”
One would think that as a host of Fox BUSINESS that Cavuto would know what the market is for speaking fees.
But Cavuto couldn’t help himself and tried to tie the former president’s speaking fees to the alleged and unproven pay-to-play accusations, which led to another blistering by Cuban.
“In order to determine if there is any quid pro quo, there’s got to be some money destined for the trade-off,” Cuban said before pointing out that the Clintons have been “investigated more than anybody” and have yet to be found guilty of any wrongdoing beyond what conservatives make up in their own small minds.

Mark Cuban just put Neil Cavuto in his place and proved that he is more forthcoming than anyone of Donald Trump’s supporters. Hillary Clinton is very lucky to have him as an ally.
