Allison Janney has some advice for White House press secretary Sean Spicer: “Just quit.”

Janney, who played fictional White House press secretary C.J. Cregg on NBC’s long-running political drama “The West Wing,” was asked to weigh in on the embattled spokesman for President Trump during a Friday interview on “Access Hollywood Live.”
