Turns out Real Billionaires Don't Like Fake Billionaires

Michael Bloomberg got under Trump's skin so badly that he literally threatened to strike the former NYC Mayor.

"Donald Trump’s critics are starting to get under his skin. Speaking at a rally in Davenport, Iowa, on Thursday, the GOP presidential nominee fumed about the criticism he was receiving from speakers at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia."

“I mean, the things that were said about me,” Trump told the crowd. “I was going to hit a number of those speakers so hard their heads would spin, they’d never recover!”

"What began as Trump griping, however, quickly turned menacing."

“I was going to hit one guy in particular, a very little guy. I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spin. He wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”

"Trump never named his target, but he seemed to confirm in a tweet Friday morning that it was former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the DNC speakers."

And Bloomberg said Trump wasn't fit for office.

Now another real billionaire is throwing shade at the fake billionaire.

"Billionaire businessman Mark Cuban officially endorsed Hillary Clinton at a surprise appearance during a rally here Saturday night, where he also railed against Donald Trump."

"Cuban, who first said he would vote for Clinton via tweet Saturday, opened his remarks by saying "hello" to Trump in Russian. He then bragged that 'Shark Tank,' a television show he invested in early on, "kicked 'The Apprentice's' ass."

"During his introduction of Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine, Cuban went after Trump and got a huge reaction from the crowd of 5,100 when he used a Pittsburgh slang term that means someone who is inept to describe the Republican nominee."

"You know what we call a person like that, you know, the screamers, the yellers, the people who try to intimidate you? You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jag-off. Is there any bigger jag-off in the world than Donald Trump?" Cuban said.

"The Pittsburgh native later told CNN that he decided to support Clinton because Trump "scares" him."

"Initially, I really hoped he would be something different, that as a businessperson, I thought there was an opportunity there. But then he went off the reservation and went bats--- crazy, Cuban said.

"He also mentioned that he had met with Trump in recent months and told him "at some point you have to learn, at some point you have to read."

It will be interesting to see if Trump goes after Mark Cuban next. Cuban has been telling everyone that Trump only has about $165 million dollars-his father gave him $200 million in 1974-in 2016 dollars.
