A secret meeting between billionaire Hillary Clinton supporter Mark Cuban and Satan-admiring Trump adviser Steve Bannon took place on Tuesday afternoon at the King Cole Bar in Midtown’s St. Regis Hotel. TMZ broke the news when it published this creeper shot of the duo on Tuesday night.
Cuban emerged as a vocal Clinton ally and self-proclaimed “Trump troll extraordinaire” in the months leading up to the election, but he wasn’t always so sour on the president-elect. In the summer of 2015, Cuban called his fellow billionaire “the best thing to happen to politics in a long, long time.” Cuban has also had kind words for Bannon, who he said is “smarter than Trump.” The Dallas Mavericks owner, whose team has sworn off Trump hotels, also suggested that Bannon was steering Trump’s campaign with the success of Breitbart News in mind. Of course, that theory hinged on the idea that Trump would lose the election. Cuban has yet to comment on the meeting and told one reporter that he would not be doing so.
