'Billionaire Bro' Mark Cuban Roasts Trump 'Shark Tank' Style on Colbert

Election '16

Donald Trump claims he's worth $4.5 billion - but since he's become the Republican nominee, experts have doubted that figure. And even fellow billionaire Mark Cuban owner of the NBA's Dallas Mavericks and "shark" investor is pretty skepical. 

"Come on, I've got twice as much... at least twice as much," Cuban boasted to Stephen Colbert Wednesday night. "But he's running for president, he's the Republican nominee, so he deserves a certain level of respect."

That level turned out pretty low, when Cuban took the gloves off to help roast Trump, as only another billionaire can.

“Donald, do you know that to be a billionaire, you have to have the billion part in your bank account,” Cuban said. “Not just the air.”

"When you're going through customs and they ask if you've got anything to declare, try not to blurt out 'bankruptcy,'" Cuban continued. 

”Your companies fail so often, you must’ve gone to business school at Trump University,” the "Shark Tank" host pointed out.

“Oh, Donald ― he just dropped you like one of your first two wives,” Colbert remarked.
