Sean Spicer says he would mow former President Obama’s lawn if asked.

“If President Obama called me right now today and said ‘hey, come mow my lawn,’ I’d do it because I think that there is something that we all should come together as Americans and want to support our leaders, our elected officials, Republican, Democrat,” the former Trump White House press secretary said on the Fox Business Network on Thursday. 


Spicer was responding to actor Tom Hanks, who said he would not go to the White House if it screened his new movie, “The Post.” 

“I think the idea that it has become kind of cool to say I won’t even show up to see the president of the United States is a sad commentary on where we are,” Spicer continued. 

“I think that for people like Tom Hanks, who I think is a great film producer and director, he should take the lead maybe say, you know what? I want to go talk to the president about these important issues that were brought up in my movie in ‘The Post.’ “

Hanks portrays former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee in the film, which is about the fight with the Nixon administration to publish the Pentagon Papers. 

Hanks criticized Trump for slamming the media.

“Right now, without a doubt, there are people in power trying to — if not quash or stop the right to publication, denigrate it to the point they are saying there is no truth to it whatsoever,” Hanks said.
