What’s next? CJ Cregg conducts a White House press briefing

Q: What do you call it when a cast member from The West Wing takes over a job in the actual West Wing?

A: A good start.

Allison Janney was making a pitch to draw attention to the opioid epidemic.

That didn’t stop longtime CBS reporter Mark Knoller from asking who President Bartlett was supporting in the upcoming election.

By the way, among the announcements from the White House was that 191 schools of nursing will soon require their advanced practice registered nursing students to take some form of prescriber education by the time they graduate, in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. The list includes Augsburg College, the University of Minnesota, and Winona State University.
