Billionaire business mogul Mark Cuban held little back Thursday when asked about his “Shark Tank” costar Kevin O’Leary’s recently announced plans to run for Conservative Party leadership in Canada, with the aim of challenging Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, of the Liberal Party, in 2019.
“The squealing sounds you are hearing are all the people who said they would leave for Canada hitting the brakes and turning around,” Cuban told Business Insider in an email.
That was an apparent reference to a popular meme about moving to Canada that sprang up during the 2016 US presidential election – and especially after President-elect Donald Trump’s win.
O’Leary, a multimillionaire, made his political aspirations known Wednesday.
