Faces of the Day: Watch These Tech CEOs Meet Trump and Say, “Hello, Darkness, My Old Friend…”

Yesterday, that billionaire reality TV game show host who won the presidency, President-elect Donald Trump, invited tech’s brightest stars, the lords of silicon valley to Trump Tower for a little chat about how his administration will be working with them. Perfect example, if you don’t make an emoji for “Crooked Hillary,” you don’t get a seat at the table. Got that, Twitter?

Anyway, whatever Trump was telling them, which was mostly the word “bounce,” it seemed either particularly mortifying, baffling, or both — which, to be honest, is Trump’s M.O. In attendance were, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, Larry Page and Eric Schmidt of Google, Satya Nadella of Microsoft, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos from Amazon, who also owns the Washington Post, a paper which has reported that Russia actively worked to undermine American democracy and hand Trump the presidency. So, yeah, that relationship is off to a good start.

Pictures from the summit atop Trump Tower, which costs New York City more than $1 million a day to protect, show a group of people who changed the world quietly screaming “The horror, the horror.” Twitter had a field day with this, meme-ing tech’s most powerful who now have to deal with this whole mess just like the rest of us.
