‘America’s Dad’ Tom Hanks Is Cheating on the U.S. – And We Deserve It

July 27, 2020 3:41 PM UTC
Tom Hanks just received Greek citizenship. This means America's Dad is "seeing someone else," and the worst part is we deserve it.
  • Tom Hanks and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, became Greek citizens.
  • There’s no reason to think they’re ditching the U.S. – yet.
  • If “America’s Dad” ever does leave, it won’t be anything we don’t deserve.

“America’s Dad” is seeing someone else. The prime minister of Greece announced that Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have obtained full Greek citizenship.

Could the Hanks family be leaving us?

Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson Are Now Greek Citizens

We should have seen it coming.

A year before Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis posted an Instagram photo of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson showing off their new passports, President Prokopis Pavlopoulos made them “honorary citizens” of the country.

It’s not quite as strange as it seems. Despite her “American” last name, Rita Wilson is actually of Greek ancestry. She and Hanks frequently vacation on the Greek island of Antiparos.

While this is a lot more official than last year’s honorary citizenship, there’s no evidence America’s Dad is ready to ditch the United States. He is still a U.S. citizen.

Plans change, though.

QAnon, Trump, And The Refusal To Wear Masks

If the Hanks family ever does leave the United States, we as a nation will be devastated. After the way we’ve behaved in 2020, we’ll absolutely deserve it.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were two of the first high-profile American celebrities to test positive for coronavirus.

After they recovered and exited self-quarantine, they went on a campaign to encourage people to wear masks and slow the spread of the virus.

Unfortunately, odious QAnon conspiracy theorists quickly seized upon the narrative and accused Hanks of the worst possible crimes.

They falsely alleged Hanks and Wilson weren’t really in quarantine. Instead, they were under investigation for perpetrating an “elite celebrity pedophile ring” alongside the likes of Chrissy Teigen and Lady Gaga.

Why do they believe this?

Because Hanks and Wilson don’t support Donald Trump. And according to the QAnon-ers, all “Trump haters are pedophiles.”

What’s more, because Wilson supports wearing masks, she’s obviously involved in a conspiracy to strip Americans of their fundamental human rights.

Who can blame Tom Hanks for wanting to get out of the United States – or at least reserve a seat on the lifeboat? If a man as pure of heart as America’s Dad isn’t safe from the disgusting QAnon cult, none of us are.
