Billionaire ‘Shark Tank’ host Mark Cuban unloads on ‘pretentious as f**k’ Silicon Valley ‘tech bros’

Billionaire entrepreneur, television personality and professional sports team owner Mark Cuban unloaded on progressive mecca San Francisco and the “pretentious as f**k” attitude of the tech industry workers who reside in Silicon Valley.

Cuban, who is probably best known for his longtime stint as one of the “sharks” on the popular ABC series “Shark Tank,” sat down with Bill Maher on the latest edition of the liberal comic’s podcast, “Club Random with Bill Maher” where the two discussed a wide range of topics including his career, investments, and current cultural affairs.

At one point, California came up, specifically the City by the Bay which has deteriorated into a crime-ridden, drug-infested hellhole with streets lined with vagrants and human feces as a result of decades of one-party Democrat rule as well as the influence of big tech snobbery on the area’s cultural values.

“I could not live here as a permanent resident just ’cause the taxes and the regulation. Yeah. I love coming out here, but I’m a visitor,” he said.

“And those are the reasons – taxes and regulations?” Maher asked, seeking to pin his guest down on the exact reason why he isn’t keen on living in California.

“That’s a big part of it. Yeah. Just because, I mean, look what’s happened in San Francisco, I mean, an entire industry is getting pushed out,” Cuban replied. “You know, the whole technology industry went from, ‘Well, it’s ok. This is growth, this is, you know, the new thing.’ And now, you know, it’s just about people sh*ttin’ on the street.”

“I was gonna say, the cleaning-up-the-sh*t-off-the street-industry is doing very well,” a laughing Maher responded.

Cuban, who as the owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks hasn’t been shy about his expressing left-wing worldview as a top voice in America’s most “woke” sports league then zeroed in on San Francisco and the haughty wizards of Silicon Valley.

“I don’t want to add to the sh*t on the street and take a dump on San Francisco. I love San Francisco. I think we all love San Francisco,” Maher said of what was once one of America’s most pristine and scenic cities.

“I’m not, I’ve never been a big San Francisco fan, at all,” Cuban replied

“You know, I know what you mean. It’s a little cliquey,” Maher said.

“Pretentious as f**k,” Cuban proclaimed. “Right? Being in the tech industry everybody is the smartest motherf**ker in the world if you live in Silicon Valley.”

Maher seemed to agree.

“It’s the kind of place that’s like, ‘Oh, I know you think you’re smarter, but you’re not.’ First of all, you’re not smarter than the people in Tulsa who come to my show anyway and they’re a whole lot more fun,” he said.

“I mean, the attitudes, I mean, it’s just like, ‘We’re tech bros. We’re tech bros. Of course we’re smarter. You know, we went to Harvard, we went to MIT, we’re in tech. You just can’t hang. You don’t know what the f**k is going on.’ I do all I can not to let any of my investments work outta Silicon Valley,” Cuban elaborated.

“Well, tech is, I mean, just because you’re good at tech doesn’t mean you’re the smartest person in the world,” Maher said.

“F**k no,” replied Cuban.
