White House press secretary Jay Carney welcomed a former star of NBC’s The West Wing to Twitter by asking her to teach him how to perform “The Jackal.”
Allison Janney, who played Carney’s fictional counterpart C.J. Cregg on the popular show, joined Twitter on Tuesday, and Carney tweeted at her, “Can you teach me how to do the jackal?”
Carney linked to a clip in which Janney’s character performed Ronny Jordan’s song, “The Jackal,” in an episode on the popular show.
