While a lot of Americans may be ready for the election to be over already, there is one person who is having an absolute blast with it: billionaire Mark Cuban.
Cuban, a notorious Donald Trump troll, who was at one time rumored to be one of his options for a vice presidential pick, has scored front-row seats to the first presidential debate Monday, thanks to the Clinton campaign, and he could not be more psyched.
Cuban has made it clear he is firmly on team Hillary Clinton for the debate, tweeting that he is ready to see a “humbling at Hofstra” University, where the debate will be held.

It turns out the Clinton campaign was behind getting Cuban that ticket, an anonymous aide told CNN.
Cuban, who owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, can be expected to bring his enthusiasm for competition to the debate, Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon tweeted.

Cuban has been a thorn in Trump’s side for many months, most recently challenging Trump to an interview, in which he cannot mention Clinton, for $10 million to charity. He is also the leading skeptic that Trump is as rich as he claims to be, badgering Trump in the media to release his tax returns.
