It always catches us off guard when the political world meets pop culture… but we're absolutely living for it!
It will be ten years since The West Wing went off the air next month, but the Aaron Sorkin-penned show is still relevant today thanks to its politics and its all star cast.

Allison Janney took the podium as C.J. Cregg and began to answer questions before eventually handing things over to IRL Press Secretary Joshua Earnest, much to the surprise of reporters.
Apparently, the Emmy Award-winning actress was in Washington, D.C. with Chuck Lorre to bring serious attention to America's opiate problem — something her character on Mom struggles with — and decided that calling back to another hit show of hers would be the best way to do it!
If this is going to become a thing, we want Darby Stanchfield as Abby Whelan from Scandal to show up next week to address our nation's crippling love triangle outbreak. LOLz!!!
