Apple CEO Tim Cook will host a fundraiser with House Speaker Paul Ryan next week as the iPhone maker tries to strengthen its relationships with key Republicans — despite its decision to pull support for the GOP convention because of its distaste for Donald Trump.Yeah, buy an iphone and support the GOP house majority.* You know, the one which kills gun safety legislation, votes to abolish Obamacare and wants to put cops in bathrooms to prevent trans people from taking a leak.
Cook will help generate cash for Ryan at a private breakfast on June 28 in Menlo Park, Calif., along with Gary Wipfler, the company’s treasurer, according to an invite obtained by POLITICO on Monday. The money benefits not only the speaker but a joint fundraising committee aimed at helping to elect other House Republicans.
*Yes, of course, this is Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, and not Apple the corporation supporting Paul Ryan by hosting this fundraiser. But the money in Tim Cook's pocket comes from Apple, and that money comes from people buying its products.
