Tom Hanks gifts White House Press Corps with espresso machine

first_imgABC/Ida Mae Astute(WASHINGTON D.C.) — In an attempt to keep them honest — and caffeinated — Tom Hanks has gifted the White House Press Corps with an espresso machine. It’s apparently a tradition dating back to 2004 — when President George W. Bush was reelected to a second term. The gift was accompanied by a typewritten note, in true Tom Hanks fashion — the actor is a typewriter enthusiast.“Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way,” the note reads. “Especially for the Truth part.”Journalists, it’s well known, basically live on coffee alone — well, not alone, as ABC News’ Jonathan Karl joked in a tweet of gratitude to the star. “Thank you, @tomhanks – greatly appreciate the coffee; bourbon wouldn’t hurt either.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
