Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush made two important stops Tuesday on his first day as an official presidential candidate – the early voting state of New Hampshire and the set of “The Tonight Show.”
But Bush didn’t sit for a traditional armchair interview with host Jimmy Fallon. He “slow jammed” the news of his campaign launch.
“Yesterday in Miami I formally announced my candidacy for president of the united states,” Bush said. “I thought long and hard about this decision, and after careful consideration I determined that now was the right time to launch my campaign for the Republican nomination.”
“Oh yeah,” Fallon responded, kicking off a series of innuendo-laced lyrics. “The governor thought long and hard about joining the GOP race. After months of being a total caucus-tease, Jeb finally made up his mind and quit beating around the bush.”
