Jimmy Fallon and Mitt Romney slow jam the news on Late Night

Governor Mitt Romney was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and he agreed to join Jimmy and the Roots to slow jam the news. Mitt is the subject of a documentary that is playing at the Sundance Film Festival. Mitt was a good sport about the whole thing and did a surprisingly good job. Jimmy talked about current news items such as the NSA syping scandal, intoning: "Aw yeah, President Obama looked the American people up and down and said, 'I'd tap that.'" From Edward Snowdon to the glitches on the Obamacare website, Mitt, Jimmy and Questlove laid out what's happening to some cool jazz.

At one point Jimmy asked Mitt if he was running for president for the third time. Romney replied, "Jimmy, I'm not running again. There are a lot of great candidates for 2016 and I'll be supporting the Republican nominee 100 percent." "Don't you mean 47 percent?" joked Jimmy. "That's a low blow but it's pretty funny," replied Romney. Jimmy then confessed, "I had to do it." Questlove also got in a funny jab about Justin Bieber. Take a look:
