What was the need to express their political opinions and in the process reveal they were working with the campaign publicly and in an official capacity?

    Every sane human being was upset with the election. We elected a selfish moron and showed the world that we’re mostly selfish morons. Merica first!

      WscU36 you sound hysterical.. you have the right to make dumb decisions and I have the right to be upset with a lot of people making dumb choices. That's democracy, but it's still incredibly sad and pretty upsetting and honestly, embarrising.

    why does big tech support the left when the right is more likely to keep it deregulated?

      OP
      I know why they are sad. But I'm shocked they are so dumb. Why couldn't they have kept their mouths shut and did their crying in a private office or ar their home. This was irresponsibly dumb.

    It’s completely unprofessional.

    Politics does have a place in the workplace. Politics affects tech companies significantly. That’s why we have our own PACs and lobbyists.

    But that’s no reason to get so emotional about it. Or act like it’s the end of the world.

    Plus Trump is actually very supportive of big tech...

    Go build something like Google, then you can talk. Also, Brin is the epitome of free market capitalism winning, he should be a conservative icon. Last I checked first amendment is still in force and google execs are entitled to have an opinion.

      Is that why he was caught banging female employees? Is that what winning is in free market capitalism? Why did he get married then?

      Actually you can't. That's why alimony and divorce courts exist. Also, we have more than double the number of female ancestors to males so a lot of males actually died virgins.

      Anyways, back on topic: it is clear from his behavior that Brin doesn't have morals, got lucky with his dad, and as such should not be respected.

      Lol, I’m not sure there are a bunch of Evangelical Christians who think that total and complete immorality is no disqualified for any high office. And who talks more about morality than them?

    Google is the largest donor to the DNC in it’s like a revolving door with their people. It’s bullshit that they’re able to pump so much money into elections that flies under the radar of campaign finance laws, I’m talking about the massive power they have to bias and censor information. The exact same so stupid because they have such deep contempt for people that disagree with them

      When did net worth equate to the level of social skills? This is just lack of common sense and professionalism. Brin is a true example of a tech geek suddenly getting money
      Aug 28

      It’d be nice if there was some common sense and professionalism in the white house. That actually affects you. Brin saying he is not happy with the outcome of an election doesnt.
      Aug 28
    • Cisco Htov50
      White house had professionalism for countless years. Now an outsider Trump comes in for 3 years? All problems now are Trump’s fault. Every problem that existed even long ago. Thanks Trump. And saying the president of Google has no influence is pretty naive
