Laura Ingraham Rips Tom Hanks for Refusing to Visit White House: Maybe It’s Time To ‘Cast Away’ Hanks (Mediaite)

Laura Ingraham blasted Tom Hanks for remarks he made while promoting his new film The Post.

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter if he would attend a White House screening of the film upon the request of President Trump, Hanks said the following:

That’s an interesting question. I don’t think I would. Because I think that at some point — look, I didn’t think things were going to be this way last November. I would not have been able to imagine that we would be living in a country where neo-Nazis are doing torchlight parades in Charlottesville [Va.] and jokes about Pocahontas are being made in front of the Navajo code talkers. And individually we have to decide when we take to the ramparts. You don’t take to the ramparts necessarily right away, but you do have to start weighing things. You may think: “You know what? I think now is the time.” This is the moment where, in some ways, our personal choices are going to have to reflect our opinions. We have to start voting, actually, before the election. So, I would probably vote not to go.
