Tim Cook isn’t the only tech CEO making friends with the big wet President. But if I were on the same short list as Mark Zuckerberg, I may want to take that as a clue to reconsider my stance.
Also reportedly dining with Zuckerberg and the President was Peter Thiel, a man who once said that he “no longer [believes] that freedom and democracy are compatible”.
Update: For clarification, I understand that working dinners with the President are fairly common for CEOs and other prominent business leaders. They are obviously valuable for in-person lobbying, but I think they create an uncomfortable compromise. The less-formal and cozier setting is unbecoming of CEOs who wish to distance themselves from a discriminatory President.
