Josh Earnest briefed reporters and responded to questions on a variety of topics. He addressed the Defense Department’s findings in the investigation into the U.S. airstrikes on a civilian hospital in northern Afghanistan last October, saying “the U.S. goes to tremendous lengths to avoid civilian causalities.” He also answered questions concerning the White House Correspondents' Dinner, the 2016 presidential campaign, and funding to fight the spread of the Zika virus. At the start of the briefing, actress and activist Allison Janney made a guest appearance. She discussed her efforts to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic in the U.S. Ms. Janney played the White House press secretary on the television show “The West Wing.” close
