The White House press corps received a new espresso machine from Actor Tom Hanks, and it came with a message.

"Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth part," the note said. It was signed by Hanks.

The note was topped with artwork and a caption that reads,"Fresh, spirited American troops, flushed with victory, bringing thousands of hungry, ragged, battle-weary prisoners."

This isn't the first he's bought for White House reporters — he bought one in the early 2000s after he toured the press corp break room and saw there wasn't any coffee maker at all.
