It’s going to be another Apple-heavy FLOTUS box at Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.

First Lady Michelle Obama will be welcoming Apple CEO Tim Cook as one of her guests at the SOTU. According to the White House, Cook will be accompanied by “military families, those championing immigration reform and those whose lives have been touched by gun violence.”

Also sitting with Mrs. Obama tomorrow night: Bobak Ferdowsi, better known as the “Mohawk Guy” from NASA that gained an internet following after the Mars Curiosity rover landed successfully on the Martian surface.

This is the second year in a row that Michelle Obama has tapped someone associated with Apple to be her guest at the SOTU. Last year, her featured guest was Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

It’ll be interesting to see just how far the First Lady and Tim Cook are seated from Ted Nugent.
