West Wing Star Says Aaron Sorkin Would Never Have Been Allowed to Write Character as 'Racist' as Donald Trump

Originally posted 06/28/2016 02:50PM

Aaron Sorkin created some of the most iconic political leaders and players in pop culture history in his acclaimed show The West Wing – but would he ever have imagined a character like presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump?

Bradley Whitford, who played White House Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman for seven seasons on the NBC series, doesn't think so.

"It's terrible writing," the 56-year-old actor recently told PEOPLE. "Look, our show had a progressive democratic point of view, and the fakest thing about our show was that we had rational Republicans written in to be the opposition."

Charlie Sheen Is 'Really Not' a Fan of Donald Trump – and Cheap Regifted Cufflinks Are Partly to Blame

[YOUTUBE "dp6BIDCZRic"] Charlie Sheen is "really not" a fan of Donald Trump.

The actor reveals on The Graham Norton Show (which will be broadcast Friday night in the U.K.) that his distaste for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has some basis in an encounter he had with Trump, 70, a few years back.

"I was once in a restaurant with my then-wife Brooke [Mueller], and he came up to me to say that he would like to give me a wedding gift," Sheen recalls. "He took off his cufflinks, told me they were solid platinum and diamonds and insisted I have them."

"Six months later, I was having some jewelry appraised and remembered the cufflinks. When the jeweler took a look she recoiled and said, 'In their finest moment, they were cheap pewter and bad zirconia.' "
