Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush “slow jammed the news” during his first-ever late-night appearance on the Tonight Show Tuesday night.
Bush spoke about some of his campaign promises over R&B beats that the show’s band, The Roots, played in the background, while host Jimmy Fallon threw in his signature “oh yeah” phrases and echoes.
“We’re a nation of immigrants, and I believe everyone should have the chance to achieve the American dream,” Bush said, before repeating the same line in Spanish.
“Whoa, hold the telefono,” Fallon then joked, “I know you just got back from Miami, but I didn’t realize I was interviewing Governor Pitbull.”
“I’m looking forward to hitting the campaign trail and discussing the issues that are important to all Americans — and having spirited debates with my fellow Republicans about how to solve them,” Bush said.
“You don’t want to mess with Little Jebby. Because when it comes to debating, he’s a master,” Fallon replied.
Roots rapper ‘Black Thought’ then added, “He’s a master debater.”
Many political figures have participated in the “Slow Jam The News” segment with Fallon including President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams.
