Tim Cook Will Sit Next To Michelle Obama During State Of The Union Address Tomorrow


“I’m looking at you, Cook.”

Apple CEO Tim Cook will be rubbing shoulders with the Obama family at the U.S. State of the Union address on Tuesday, February 12th. First Lady Michelle Obama has invited Cook to sit in her box while President Barack Obama gives his speech.

Cook “will be joined by military families, those championing immigration reform and those whose lives have been touched by gun violence,” according to the San Jose Mercury News. Tomorrow will be a busy day for Apple’s CEO; he will also be speaking at the Goldman Sachs conference earlier in the day.

This isn’t the first time an Apple elite has been invited to the President’s State of the Union address. Last year Obama invited Steve Jobs’s widow, Laurene Powell Jobs. When Steve Jobs died in 2011, Obama called the legendary Apple co-founder one of “the greatest American innovators.” Tim Cook recently announced that Apple will be bringing some of its Mac production stateside this year. It wouldn’t be surprising for Obama to mention that during this year’s address. Expect at least one nod to Apple during the speech.

    I thought he had more class than that. Oh well.

    I would like Apple much more than I do if they didn’t openly support the liberal propaganda machine.
