Donald Trump’s seamless transition from celebrity billionaire to GOP front runner is tearing down walls for other celebrity billionaires: Mark Cuban just said Trump’s success inspires him to consider running for office.

Politico reports:

“I love the fact that he has changed the game. … The idea of imperfect candidates with forceful ideas opens the door for a lot of people that would not have previously run,” said Cuban, cautioning that if he were to follow Trump’s example, “My positions would be far different.”

Cuban is hosting a rally for Trump at his sports arena in Dallas.

Meanwhile, software pioneer John McAfee (who’s antivirus software bears his name) has filed papers with the FEC for a third-party bid he says he will run entirely online.

“I appear to be the only one who sees that we’re living in an insane society created by an insane government,” McAfee told Politico.
