Obama Hosts White House Movie Night With Tom Hanks

After bashing FOX News and conservatives, and praising Barack Obama last week, far left actor Tom Hanks spent movie night with the president at the White House.
Bashing FOX has its perks.
My FOX DC reported:

President Barack Obama hosted a movie night at the White House for Hollywood heavyweights Tom Hanks and director Steven Spielberg on Thursday – at which they watched a preview of the star duo’s new World War Two miniseries “The Pacific.”

The HBO series – shot in Australia – tells the story of the U.S. Marines’ struggle against Japanese forces in the Pacific.

Hanks and Spielberg – who worked together on WWII movie “Saving Private Ryan” and HBO TV drama “Band of Brothers”, along with HBO’s Gary Goetzman – were joined at the screening in the White House theater by military top brass, Fox News reported.

After the screening, Hanks and Spielberg dropped by the White House press room – apparently to inspect the espresso machine Hanks gave the press corps back in 2004.

A good thing too – as the star actor promised to buy the reporters a new one.

“This one is on its last legs,” he said, quipping: “You know, you are supposed to clean this after every use.”

He added: “We’re just trying to combat sleep deprivation, enjoy!”
