WASHINGTON – Actor Tom Hanks has sent a new espresso machine and a personal note to the White House press corps.

The note reads: “To the White House Press Corps: Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially the Truth part.”


Hanks first sent the press corps an espresso machine in 2004 when he and his family were visiting the White House, CNN reports. Hanks was apparently surprised to find working journalists without a coffee pot and had an espresso machine delivered a short time later.
