Skip to comments.Hollywood Courage: Tom Hanks Fawns Over Obama, Slams Fox News on…MSNBC
Posted on 03/06/2010 1:30:20 PM PST by jimbo123
Watch the video (full segment is here). Some of its just strange. Hanks hand-wrings over parents not being able to get their kids to the hospital if GM is no longer in business. At least thats what I think he says, because when you live in a bubble where no one ever says Huh?, much less challenges you, those are the kinds of things you start to say and believe. Scary.
And when Hanks speaks of a propaganda network doing the Presidents bidding, does he not see the irony of his being on MSNBC? The day before he was on Good Morning America. Really, Tom, no irony at all as you do the Obama Propaganda Network Tour?

I always loathed Tom Hanks. Some people say “oh but he and spielberg made movies about WW2.” No they got richer off exploiting WW2.
Tom... you ignorant slut!
Hey Tommie. Google “Dixie Chicks” and “Sean Penn”. See what happens to ‘entertainers’ who become shills for marxist liberals.
"Stupid is as stupid does."
Hanks has made some good movies, but really, what do I care about what some Hollywood type says? Hanks has no domestic or foreign policy expertise as far as I know. Neither do I, but no one cares what I think. So why should I care about Hanks’ opinions?
And another thing...who watches MSNBC? I sure don’t.
Frankly, I couldn’t care less that they were involved in “Saving Private Ryan”, which we all know was supposed to be soft-pedal on how evil it is to ever get into war. Never heard Hanks worrying about WWII until he was in that pix - now you can’t hear enough from him.
Just another liberal, I always say.
Tom Hanks is an actor. Tom pretends to be people. Writers make up stories. Directors guide actors so that the pretend story is believable. Producers break legs, blackmail, and call in favors to get money to pay everyone making movies. Agents make all of Tom’s bad deeds go away and turn Tom into a star for a percentage.
Tom has a toupee. I like Tom’s toupee because it looks natural.
Tom Hanks is an actor with a good toupee that pretends to be humans that don’t exist.
I like humans.
Tom Hanks must be right.
Unfortunately all of them are - but they aren’t ostracized at all. Most are lionized and continue to be idolized by the ninkumpoops of this country.
Boy, he was a perfect cast as Forrest Gump. Same IQ.
Your statements frame exactly why I’m appalled at all the press these idiots get for THEIR (unbalanced) views, and how they never shirk at giving it, either.
Tom Hanks: Still Stuck on Stupid.
the Wilson ball should have got an Oscar
Whorealdo on Fox does the same sicking crap.
Like most of today’s actors, Hanks would have staved during Hollywood’s Golden Age of the 30s or 40s. Somehow I can’t see him in Casablanca, the Thin Man, Gone With the Wind, the Mark of Zorro, Robin Hood, the Big Sleep...you get the idea.
Are you trying to tell me that Tom Hanks really wasn’t there for D-Day and the rest of it?
And plenty of crap movies too.
” but really, what do I care about what some Hollywood type says? “
Nevertheless, when he attacks conservatives in general, we are gonna hit him right back..with compound interest.
“Hanks has no domestic or foreign policy expertise as far as I know”
You would be right.
Tom Hanks attended California State University in Sacramento, California, and he majored in, wait for it... Theater. In my day, it was usually pinheads, who majored in Theater.
I know a heck of a lot more about foreign policy and foreign affairs than this POS does, having actually lived in quite a few countries in my lifetime, paid close attention to what happens in other countries for over 20 years.
Really? Hanks has a hair piece?
How do you know that?
Can’t he just act as if he has hair?
I think that is hysterical.
Too bad we all can’t go on t.v. and harrangue libs and the likes of Hanks.
What we can do is voice our displeasure with their b.s. by NOT supporting their movies music or whatever.
Like what happened to the F*&^ing Dixie Chicks.
Guess I’ll not give another Hanks project any more of my money or support.
Yo TOM, F you pal.
But when he started making "important movies" he turned me off. What's so heroic about making "Private Ryan"? WWII flicks have always beeen money-makers for Hollyweird.
Hanks like many people successful in one area, makes the mistake that he somehow is an expert in another. Like most, he makes himself foolish.
If he (or his publicist) were smart, he would keep his political opinions to himself. Regardless of which way he leans, he would offend someone. Just shut up and make those movies.
And shame on the news media for devoting time to the babblings of some Hollywood type, instead of reporting some really hard news that is actually useful and important.
he did not “earn it”
after all, now we know why “wilson” left the island!
I would agree with that.
Hanks is not even fit to wipe the feet of Jimmy Stewart, John Wayne, Cary Grant or Clarke Gable. Unlike Tom Hanks who only plays make believe soldiers, Jimmy Stewart actually fight in WW II, and he still wasn't anywhere near as arrogant as the idiotic Tom Hanks is about his only pretending to be a soldier in WW II.
Who really gives a flying f**k what Tom Hanks or any other feeble minded Sulliedwood actor thinks?! These people have not the foogiest notion what real people have to deal with.
No more Hanks movies for me. Makes me ill to even look at Zero.. and its choke and gag time when I hear about anyone who is stupid enough to fall for his BS.
If I went to one of his movies now I could not enjoy it for thinking what an idiot he is.
“and he still wasn’t anywhere near as arrogant as the idiotic Tom Hanks is about his only pretending to be a soldier in WW II”
Back then Hollywood people knew their place.
He's an over-rated, self-impressed supercilious blowhard who couldn't convey being wet if you pushed him off a damn boat.
Tom Hanks believes differently then I do and expressed his opinion. He must be made to suffer!!!!!
Actors/musicians with wigs: Hanks, Letterman, Cruise, Gene Simmons, Paul McCartney, Shatner, and Nicolas Cage to start a long exhaustive list.
What makes Tom Hanks opinion more important than self-evident truths and rational thought? Is Hank’s opinions given consideration because he cites Madison, Hamilton, Jefferson, Smith, Ricardo and Hume or that he pretends in make-believe movies with good toupees?
Actors, academics, musicians, even scientists are often completely inexperienced with real life and as such think liberalism is just hunky dory.
It doesn't mean they ought to be sent to the gas chamber. It does however mean that we shouldn't expect much out of them, unless, that is, we want to be disappointed.
BTW, just as in dealing with children, we must overcome the temptation to sink to their level in debate.
I'm with you on that. Much like Tom Brokaw and his "Greatest Generation" book, trying to get cred with the vets while piling up the bucks and still maintaining his standing with lefties.
Don’t get me wrong. I like Tom Hanks’ movies. And Tom has a right to an opinion, as unsound as it may be. But Tom is an actor and I laugh at Hanks’ opinions.
But when I finally lose my hair I want his toupees. Hanks has damn good toupees. Otherwise, I going full-on Geo Washington with a powdered wig.
Hanks and Opie were one of the first Hollyweird donors to this charlatan
What a moron to even hint that he’s done a amazing job. Give us one example of something amazing?
Pray for America’s Freedom
I agree. Why should the opinions of “clowns, jugglers and minstrels” be heard with any seriousness? And I even say that as one of the “minstrels” of sorts myself. Of course, I have to write my own lines, not get them from a director.
I don’t believe I have ever seen a movie with Tom Hanks in it...
I can’t make the same claim, but it’s been a long, long time. The ‘burbs was great.
Hanks has always been an obnoxious piece of crap - and a pretty bad actor as well.
“our gov’t has to help us from time to time...” this is ina nutshell the liberal mind at work. a man making millions thinks the gov’t hs the solution and not the problem. . thse people baffle me and how they belittle the common man who is out of work is just too much to bear. they just dont realize they do it.
Clint Eastwood is an actor. I respect Eastwood’s views because his views are grounded in study. I may not agree with his views but I respect them.
John Cleese is an actor. I respect Cleese’s views. Etc..
The difference between Cleese/Eastwood’s reasonable expression of thought and Hank’s rant is REASON and THOUGHT. I may not agree with the former I tend to listen to their thinking because they are well read. I tend to ignore that latter because it’s another asinine remark about Fox News and Obama. Jeez get some fresh lines Tom.
But I could be wrong.
I see the distinction between views and rhetoric. Point taken.
Aw heck, next you’re gonna tell me he’s only 4’10”. Oh wait, he is! There goes my day...
(whispering) he’s bi-sexual too.
