After Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks blasts Trump on vulgar comments393 views
LOS ANGELES: After Robert De Niro verbally lashed US presidential candidate Donald Trump and launched a tirade of insults in a scathing video that went viral, Hollywood actor Tom Hanks spoke out against the latter’s “locker room” comments, stating that he was “offended as a man”.
The actor was promoting his upcoming movie Inferno, when he railed against the Republican nominee’s lack of experience and “locker room talk” excuse for degrading comments.
Visibly disturbed about Trump’s vulgar comments regardng women during a 2005 Access Hollywood appearance, the Sully actor said, “I’m offended as a man. I’m not offended as a husband or a father. I’m offended as a guy.”
“He was at work, man. He wasn’t in a locker room. He was at work. He was showing up to do a thing on camera,” Hanks said of Trump’s remarks, which were made on the Access Hollywood bus as the Apprentice host prepared to discuss his cameo on Days of Our Lives.
Growing more agitated, Hanks added, “That’s just not right, I’m sorry. It’s not right at work, it’s not right in the locker room. It’s wrong, period. The end. That’s all.”
He further slammed the real estate mogul turned presidential candidate for his lack of government experience.
“It’s kind of like if you have a horrible, painful tooth, and you need a root canal,” said Hanks. “Who are you going to see? A guy who says, ‘Oh, I think I can figure that out, how to do a root canal for you. Lay down.’ Or are you going to see somebody who’s done 6,000 of them, has a degree on the wall and has a great history and expertise when it comes down to it.”
