Some people send flowers to the ones they love and support. Tom Hanks sends espresso machines.

For at least the third time, the White House press corps is getting caffeinated thanks to Hanks.

He sent a note as well: “Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice and the American way. Especially for the Truth part.”

”The note — which was typed in Hanks’ signature style — includes an illustration with the caption, ‘Fresh, spirited American troops, flushed with victory, are bringing in thousands of hungry, ragged, battle-weary prisoners,’” noted EW.

“As CNN producer Allie Malloy noted in her tweet, this is the third machine the soon-to-be published author has sent them, part of a tradition Hanks first started in 2004, when he sent the press corps a new coffee maker during President George W. Bush’s time in office after he noticed they didn’t have one during a tour of the White House.

“According to The Hill, the new coffee machine replaces the one he bought in 2010, with Hanks joking, ‘You know, you are supposed to clean this after every use.’”
