Just days after billionaire entrepreneur (and Dallas Mavericks owner) Mark Cuban ripped into Donald Trump at a Hillary Clinton rally in Pittsburgh, the nation's prototype avuncular billionaire Warren Buffett also excoriated Trump on Clinton's behalf. Buffett, known as a gentleman who lends a dignified face to the sometimes unseemly world of great wealth and free market capitalism, lived up to his image at an Omaha rally.
Besides lending Clinton huge business world credibility -- especially important given Trump's claims of business prowess -- both Cuban and Buffett questioned Trump's judgment and patriotism. In introducing Clinton, an incredulous Buffett said: "How in the world can you stand up to a couple of parents who've lost a son and talk about sacrificing because you were building a bunch of buildings?" Buffett, who is in a unique position to ask, echoed the famous question directed at the red-baiting Sen. Joe McCarthy half a century ago: "Have you no decency, sir?" The Buffett and Cuban endorsements follow billionaire Michael Bloomberg's Clinton endorsement in a speech last week at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
