On Friday, Mitt Romney joined Jimmy Fallon and the Roots on NBC’s Late Night to “slow jam the news.” The main topic of the segment was President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address. Highlights include Fallon making a 47 percent quip, a once-you-go-black-you-never-go-back joke (regarding Romney’s loss to President Obama in the 2012 election), and other sex jokes, all while Romney sat behind him.
“President Obama looked the American people up and down and said, ‘I’d tap that,'” Fallon says, on the subject of NSA surveillance.
Fallon and the Roots have previously slow-jammed the news with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Obama (Breitbart.com even accused NBC of violating campaign finance law by having the president on to slow-jam the news, a claim that was of course nonsense). Romney’s appearance on Friday answers CBS News’ nearly two-year-old question, “Will we ever see…Mitt Romney follow in President Obama’s footsteps and slow jam the news?”
