#TomHanks is a great American. He & Rita Wilson did not have to make this announcement. My fondest wish for my American neighbours would be to have someone with Tom’s character in the Oval Office. Our world would be safer tonight and every night. https://t.co/xdYdolT00V— Charles Adler (@charlesadler) March 12, 2020

He survived a plane crash and being stranded on an island for 4 years. He survived Sids back yard and the claw. He made it through running the entire country and being shot “in the buttocks” He saved private ryan! Coronavirus picked the wrong dude to F#*k with. #tomhanks— Michael Ray (@Michaelraymusic) March 12, 2020
For middle America (all America?), #TomHanks and #ritawilson public announcement of their COVID-19 diagnosis is a real Rock Hudson/AIDS moment in this sucker. Hope it has the same impact. And saves lives. #coronavirus— Larry Nemecek (@larrynemecek) March 12, 2020
