Tom Hanks Brightens White House Press Corps’ Day with a New Espresso Machine


In a time where Spicer’s “alternative facts” are becoming the norm, it seems morale at the White House is at its lowest. However, today, the White House press corp were greeted with a brand new espresso machine courtesy of Tom Hanks.

“To the White House Press Corps,” a note left by Hanks read. “Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth Part.”

In the past, Hanks provided the press an espresso machine during his film shooting at the White House in 2001. He noticed the press corps were living off vending machine coffee, and bought them a legit espresso with a note: “I hope this machine will make the 24-hour cycle of news a bit more pleasant. Add water, insert pod, press button and report. All good things. Tom Hanks.”

Hopefully with a good dose of coffee, the downtrodden journalists will continue to fight for the truth.
