This year’s election has a certain stranger than fiction quality to it, and in a new interview with James Corden, “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin agrees: You can’t make this shit up.
Speaking alongside former “West Wing” star Bradley Whitford, Sorkin confessed that even his fictional politicians would find this year’s election a little strange. “I think if the characters on 'The West Wing' were watching a TV show about the people who are running for president, they’d say that this just isn’t believable. This could never happen,” said Sorkin.
Added Whitman: "If there is a God, she’s a terrible writer. You could not make this up.”
