Tom Hanks buys new coffee maker for White House reporters


President Trump has kept the media plenty busy during his first 40 days in office, and Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks has taken notice. 

Hanks has sent the White House press corps a new espresso maker, replacing the one he gifted reporters in 2010. 

The new machine was spotted in the break room of the press area of the White House Thursday morning along with a note of encouragement. 

{mosads}“To the White House Press Corps,” the note reads. “Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth Part.”

The card containing the note was topped with an illustration of American troops. 

Hanks first purchased a machine for the press during the Bush administration, when he toured the break room and noticed there was no coffee maker. 

The “Saving Private Ryan” actor replaced that machine for the “poor slobs of the Fourth Estate” in March 2010 after noticing the machine looked run down during a stop at the White House. 

“You know, you are supposed to clean this after every use,” he said of the old machine, according to ABC News.
