Apple CEO Tim Cook will sit with First Lady Michelle Obama during President Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
It marks the second year in a row the invitation has been extended to the Apple family. Last year, Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, joined Michelle Obama in the coveted spot.
During an appearance on CNBC, White House economic advisor Gene Sperling confirmed Cook's participation.
"Apple is a great American company, and it stands for our sense of innovation, invention, entrepreneurship, and risk taking and I think that's quite an appropriate person to be in the First Lady's box when the president is talking about our economic future, the importance of job creation, manufacturing, innovation and how we create strong middle-class jobs," Sperling said.

C’mon—give her a break. It’s SOOOOO hard to have to sit with the little people.
No way. Obama could sit with the Pope at an atheist convention and they would all be Catholics within a week.
He didn't build that.
Success and enjoyment of the fruits of your labor requires permission from the gov’t. That is the trend :(
No surprise that the far-left program is his own.
Ironic that a firm which made its pile as a result of American economic and business opportunity will send a representative to sit with the most anti-business, Marxist president in the history of the United States.
Yes, it is generally assumed that Cook is gay.
A 0.001%er even.

What IS surprising is the number of apple fanbois on FR who would gladly take Tim Cook up to the hilt, if he’d only autograph their personal i-thing. Whereupon they’d promptly swoon.
HERE is an interesting chart showing the relationship of some of the most powerful global Corporations and a tiny group of people that no one could mistake for being concerned for the well being of the American people.
Wanna hear something funny? I know his brother. They are, like me and my brother, totally opposite of each other. Tim’s brother is a competive shooter who owns more guns than any other 20 people combined that I know. He spends most of his free time shooting or reloading. He knows all the major gun reps by name. However, one thing they do have in common is uncommon intelligence. His brother is a great guy who most FReepers would get along with very well. He is very conservative.

If you own an Apple product, Apple gave Odinga the ability to own you.
I always suspected that about Apple users.
They adopt similar insignia, colors, organizational structure and trappings, like beards and leather outfits which are typical of apple users. It has been said that they are attracted by the mystique of the outlaw image while objecting to the suggestion that they are outlaws
It’s not ironic, they are buying protection.
Apple is obviously a FR no-no.
But don’t forget the Microsoft guys are “all in” on supporting gay marriage in Wash State.
So the only approved platform to post on FR is Linux.
Many of the most prominent industrialists during the Hitler administration tried the same thing; it didn’t save them.
The impulse to feed the alligator remains, nonetheless.
