NEW YORK (AP) — Republican Jeb Bush is already looking for a new job. For one night only, the presidential candidate is replacing Brian Williams as a comic straight man.
Bush is being featured Tuesday on the “Tonight” show’s recurring “slow jam the news” skit with host Jimmy Fallon. The job requires the former Florida governor to recite lines while Fallon, stylized as a 1970s soul man, offers a double entendre.
Obama and Mitt Romney have “slow jammed” with Fallon, but suspended NBC anchor Williams has been most commonly featured.
When Bush offers a line in Spanish, Fallon says, “I didn’t realize I was interviewing Gov. Pitbull.”
That’s a crack aimed at the Miami-born rapper Pitbull.
