Former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney dropped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Wednesday to demonstrate his lighter side, which included jabs at President Obama and a few at himself.
To discuss his future, following an announcement he will not seek the Republican Party’s nomination in 2016, Romney participated in a mirror skit with Fallon, who played his reflection.
When asked by “himself” if he was ready for the interview, Romney replied: “Well, actually I’m a little nervous. Jimmy is probably going to ask me why I didn’t run for president. What should I say?
“Just tell him you enjoy the freedom. You get to sit back, relax, golf all the time, do whatever you want,” said Fallon as his reflection in mirror.
“Aka, be president?” Romney asked. “Ha ha, good one me,” Fallon shot back.
“I’ve gotta ask, are we still scheduled to box Evander Holyfield, what are we thinking?” he asked himself. “It’s all in good fun. It’s for charity, what’s the worst that can happen?”
Fallon then hit back: “That’s true, I guess it’s not the first time we lose to a black guy.”
At one point during the conversation, Romney received an email on his phone, which he said was from Hillary Clinton. “Is it work, or personal?” Fallon asked.
“Well the email is from Hillary Clinton, so both,” Romney joked.
Also during the segment, Romney discussed his plans to fight former heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield in an upcoming charity event to cure blindness.
“It’s going to be a very quick bout,” Romney quipped, without hesitation.
Fallon then surprised the audience with a clip of Romney training with his two-year-old grandson Winston, before the pair wagered on the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.
Romney and Holyfield will “square off” for charity on May 15 in Salt Lake City, UT.
