Apple CEO Tim Cook hosts Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan for a fundraiser, this week.

He's doing this on his own and not in his capacity with Apple, but it's a little surprising for a few reasons.

Cook has already given some cash to Democratic leaders in Congress, already. Also a few weeks ago, Apple announced it won't provide support to the GOP convention as it has for past events.

Plus Cook, himself, is an out gay man, and Republicans aren't that well-known for backing policies that support LGBT people.

To find out what's in it for Cook to play both sides, Take Two talks with Tony Romm, senior technology reporter for Politico.
