“He was at work, man,” Hanks said during an interview this week. “He wasn’t in a locker room. He was at work. He was showing up to do a thing on camera. Look, I’m offended as a man. I’m not offended as a husband or a father. I’m offended as a guy.”
“That’s just not right,” he continued. “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.”
Hanks said Trump is not qualified to be president in the least.
“It’s kind of like if you have a horrible, painful tooth, and you need a root canal,” he said. “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.” (RELATED: Here’s Who Won The Debate, According To The Internet)
