As your mom has no doubt already texted you, Bernie Sanders appeared on “The View” this morning. Sanders told Raven-Symone that Martin Sheen’s work on “The West Wing” was his favorite fictional portrayal of a President, a position on this issue that solidly aligns him with the nation’s College Democrats presidents and Model UN delegates. He likes it because he “thought that was actually fairly reflective of what does go on in the White House.”

The staff of Gawker.com—which has collectively been on four official White House tours (at press time), watched all seven seasons of the show on DVD, even after it got bad, and yes, reported from the actual White House—is willing to concede that sure, there are probably some similarities between “The West Wing” and the West Wing.

In other news, Bernie Sanders is into Joy Behar.
