Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and Fox News host Laura Ingraham took shots at Tom Hanks after the actor said he wouldn't attend a White House screening of his new film, "The Post," to protest President Trump.
"I think the idea that it's become cool to say I won't even show up to see the president of the United States is a sad commentary on where we are," Spicer told the Fox Business Network on Thursday.
Ingraham similarly lashed out at Hanks Wednesday night, saying "one of America's favorite actors is insulting the president, just to sell his movie."
"Maybe it's time to cast away Tom Hanks," the host of "The Ingraham Angle" quipped, referring to Hanks' 2000 hit "Cast Away."
Earlier, Hanks said he didn't think he would attend a White House screening of the film if Trump wanted one, because "this is the moment where, in some ways, our personal choices are going to have to reflect our opinions."
"I didn't think things were going to be this way last November," the Academy Award winner told the Hollywood Reporter Wednesday. "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."
