Last week, Tom Hanks batted away a question about a Trump presidency by underlining U.S. resiliency: “We’ll be fine. We’ve worked ourselves out of holes many, many times,” the actor explained on CBS This Morning. “I’m not saying he’s going to be president of the United States … I’m gonna say that we are gonna have the most hilarious September, October, and first week of November in a very long, long time.” Over in the U.K., however, Hanks shared a more confident answer with Sky News, which asked if the contentious Republican candidate would be able to make the States great again. “Here’s the problem: America’s already great, so I don’t know what he is talking about,” Hanks said at the London premiere of A Hologram for the King on Monday. “I think that man will be president of the United States right about the time spaceships come down filled with dinosaurs in red capes.”

How’s that for showbiz?
