mobley, the thiensville village president and prominent backer of now president-elect donald trump, says hes reserving judgment. what is on record is that team co-owner marc lasry and his son, alex, the teams senior vice president, are in the 'hillblazers' club for those who donated or raised at least 100-thousand dollars for the hillary clinton campaign. the fact the bucks owners may have contributed to hillary clinton makes no impact on whether id go down and watch a bucks game. mobley says if the hotel story is true, hed find that to the voters in the state of wisconsin voted for donald trump. as for owens, he didnt like either candidate and stayed home. with the bucks, he doesnt care how they stuff the ballot box, just that they fill the basket. as long as they put a good product on the court, thats the only thing that matters to me. dallas mavericks owner mark cuban was also a prominent clinton supporter. according to the report, the bucks stayed at trump tower for a
