We are seeing Tim Cook constantly lobby the government and push controversial government policies by saying Apple is pushing for this or Apple wants that. Tim Cook IS abusing his position of Apple CEO by having Apple lobby these controversial issues. Issues that have no direct relation to improving Apple as a business. On Tim Cook's own time he can lobby whoever he wants to, but on Apple's time he should be working hard for Apple as CEO, not pushing his own political agenda. Tim Cook knows this, he's a smart man. He is abusing his position as CEO here because no one has the guts to call him out on it. I seriously think Carl Icahn one of Apple's largest shareholders needs to call Tim Cook out on this. Call Tim Cook out on his blatent abuse of position as CEO by lobbying as Apple and not as Tim Cook (private and rich citizen). Sure being Apple CEO would get him more lobbying power but still he should be doing it as Tim Cook and not as CEO of Apple by saying Apple is lobbying for this and that. Tim Cook being a hardline Democrat doesn't even come into this. I'd say the same even fi he was not a Democrat. Disgusting actions from Tim Cook on the matter. Makes me very disappointed in him.
