Hanks to Gift New Coffee Maker to WH Press Corps

FishbowlDC hears that Tammy Haddad will be presenting a gift at the White House today. But it’s not for President Obama or First Lady. Haddad will be delivering a brand new coffee machine for the White House press corps on behalf of actor Tom Hanks.

Hanks, who gifted an espresso maker to the press room nearly six years ago, noticed it was looking a little shabby during a recent visit to the White House.

“We’re just trying to combat sleep deprivation,” Hanks said.

Video from Hanks’ and Spielberg’s March 11th visit to the WH press room below.
