What an incredibly naive article. Silicon Valley CEOs have always had the idealism of John D. Rockefeller. Sitting down with Trump has nothing to do with it. Nothing at all. Fact is, sitting down with Trump is completely irrelevant to determining anything about a person’s morals or idealism. It isn’t a litmus test for anything and especially not for deciding human decency.

All this article does is echo one of the more moronic themes of Clinton’s $1.5 billion demonization campaign against Trump — that anyone who supports Trump is deplorable. Here’s a clue for the simple minded. These Silicon Valley billionaires were deplorable long before they sat down with Trump. If you actually believed they were idealists because they funded a few corporate loving Democrats and paid lip service to issues that didn’t affect their wallets, then you were not paying attention.
