Nancy Pelosi blasts Apple CEO Tim Cook for hosting GOP fundraiser

“Tuesday’s fundraiser for House Republicans in Menlo Park being held by Apple CEO Tim Cook isn’t sitting well with a certain Bay Area politician whose district begins 30 miles to the north,” John King reports for The San Francisco Gate.

King reports, “‘Poor Tim. What a nice guy he is, but somebody gave him bad advice,’ House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco, said at the end of an animated 15-minute phone interview Monday evening. ‘He probably doesn’t think that much about politics.'”

“Pelosi ticked off a number of issues where, she said, the Republicans in Congress have taken positions at odds with core values in Silicon Valley,” King reports. “‘Trump, he’s out of the question, but they’re going to help the Republicans in Congress?’ Pelosi asked with rhetorical vigor. ‘What? Do you know? Do you care?'”

  1. I remember her shrills when Mitt was in the bay area, Hillsborough to raise money. She companied that he’s the 1% and only hangs with rich people.

    When Obama went to the bay area a few days later, he drove to Atherton but that was all good and OK.

    For those not familiar with the bay area. Atherton and Hillsborough are both high end big money expensive. Not sure why when Mitt goes to Hillsborough, he’s a dirtbag, but when Obama goes to Atherton, it’s perfectly fine.

    Pelosi is a shrilly witch.

    1. Other than the fact that Romney is worth somewhere around $450 million. He is the literal embodiment of the upper .1%, I think that’s what she was referring to.

      Secondly our legalized bribery system sucks. Especially all the dark money. If we’re going to bribe our politicians, the donations should at least be public record. Ultimately I’d like to see completely publicly funded elections, with the equal time clause in full effect and all media be free for all candidates. That’s a utopian dream, and probably unrealistic, but one can dream…

    1. The alternative view that liberal gay activist Thin Tim works both sides of the political isle, hmm, sounds fair and balanced.

      Unless of course, I’ll pass if you’re a foaming at mouth fever swamp libtard … 🤒

  2. I’ve noticed that when people don’t agree with a powerful female figure that all too often they attack the way she looks, dresses, the tone of her voice, call her names like “witch,” etc., rather than commenting on her ideas. It’s like these people think that a woman is somehow less-than a man and feel that they have the right to attack her very person. That is why woman from across the societal spectrum receive verbal abuse and threats of violence from dim-wits on the Internet. I hope that having the first female President in the near future will shine a light on this kind of sexism as completely unacceptable. If you don’t like Ms. Pelosi then disagree with her ideas or actions. It is not acceptable to smear her by attacking her gender or tone of voice or the way she looks. Maybe people will come to realize that these kinds of comments are obsolete. Drives me crazy how people talk about what brand of clothing the First Lady is wearing, but they would never dream of asking the President what brand of suit he wears. If you don’t agree with Ms. Pelosi then state your opinion based on professional facts. Just calling a women demeaning names doesn’t say much about her, but says a lot about you.

    1. I seem to recall the very professional question of what kind of underwear the former Clinton wore, so I believe your point is moot. Which is what it should have been in the first place.

  3. As CEO of one of the largest tech companies, Tim Cook is obligated to act in the best interests of Apple. That means cozying up to anyone who is in a position to affect legislation that would benefit or harm Apple’s interests, such as Paul Ryan, one of, if not the, most powerful member of Congress. I doubt that he agrees with many of Ryan’s positions, but he needs to try to make him understand how Apple could be impacted by such things as the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.

  4. I cannot express in words how much I long for this wicked witch to just melt away.

    On a side note, I wish the US would pass a law requiring political donations, contributions and money collected from fund raising efforts be solely from individuals who are registered-to-vote US citizens. There shoud be NO hidden monies in an election and absolutely none collected from companies/corporations and absolutely none from foreigners or foreign governments. Individuals donating extremely large sums of money should be subject to audits to verify the origin and any politician found to have taken money in violation of the law should be permanently barred from running for any public office, national, state or local. I know, this surely would piss off politicians on either side of the aisle!
