West Wing star Allison Janney: I can’t stand to watch White House briefings.

Former West Wing star Allison Janney – famous for her role as press secretary in the hit TV show – has said she cannot stand to watch today’s White House briefings.

The Oscar-nominated actress, 58, played no-nonsense CJ Cregg in the US political drama, starring Martin Sheen as president Josiah Bartlet.

Asked whether she has any sympathy for Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Donald Trump’s current press secretary, she said: “CJ would go nowhere near that administration.”

And she told The Graham Norton Show: “It’s probably one of the hardest jobs but I can’t watch her. It is horrifying.
“I’m kind of speechless because I might say something that will get me into trouble!”

She said her much-loved role in The West Wing made her wary of meeting people because they expected her to be just like her alter-ego.
