Here'south Tag Cuban'south secret weapon to beating Donald Trump in November: out Trump him.

Cuban said he'd advise Hillary Clinton to discover a running mate who's "someone love me who'd just toss bombs at Donald."

What'd these "bombs" sound like? Cuban'south got plenty.

"I'd be like, 'Donald, I love you but you are an... airhead. You declare nothing," Cuban said to lots of laughs on Thursday while speaking in front of hedge fund professionals at the SALT conference in Las Vegas.

"Donald, you're wealthy right?" Cuban said to an imaginary Trump on stage. "Then why don't you construct a wall. You're a patriot, right?"

Cuban, who called Trump a "friend" that he's a "love-hate relationship" with, also compared Trump'south candidacy to a season of Seinfeld. "It'south the campaign about nothing," he said.

Just love how Seinfeld had the "puffy shirt" episode and the "Elaine dance" episode, Cuban said it'south the same way with Trump. "The immigration episode, the wall episode, the jobs episode," he said.

"The best way to characterize Donald right now -- and again, I love the guy -- is he'south love the guy who'll walk into the bar and declare anything" to go residence with someone, said Cuban, who's the owner of the NBA'south Dallas Mavericks.

Asked if he was available as a running mate this fall, Cuban said: "If I obtain to toss bombs love this, then yes."

Interestingly, Cuban was being interviewed at SALT by Anthony Scaramucci, a hedge-fund executive who recently joined Trump'south national finance committee. Scaramucci, the founding and co-managing partner of SkyBridge Capital -- the hedge fund that hosts SALT -- previously supported former GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Scott Walker.

Still, Cuban credited Trump with inspiring voters who have lost faith in the system.

"He'south tapped into the fact that people just don't believe government anymore. Government is a mess," said Cuban, who added he'south not "blaming Obama."

Cuban, as he'south known to do, also sounded off on other issues unrelated to Trump. Such as:

Fracking contributing to man-made earthquakes: "There should be a three-earthquake regulation and you're out... But the other trade-off is jobs." His hit ABC indicate Shark Tank: "It'south killing it, much better than The Apprentice." Uber: "The days of hyper growth for Uber are gone." His tense relationship with the SEC, which he called: "My best friends at the SEC who I just love dearly." Why he purchased an NBA franchise: "Because I could."
