Mitt Romney ‘Slow Jams the News’ with Jimmy Fallon

What’s better than Mitt Romney, Jimmy Fallon and current events read to an R&B beat? If you can find something, let me know.

Romney appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" Friday night to discuss "Mitt," the documentary about his presidential campaigns that premiered at Sundance last week and his thoughts on the Sochi Olympics after working on the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah. He also joined Fallon to "Slow Jam the News," reading off current events while Fallon spoke in a sultry voice and The Roots played a sexy beat behind them.

They jammed to concerns about NSA wiretapping, Obamacare and the 2012 presidential race, with Fallon calling Romney "Book of Mormon" at one point during the sketch.
