Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is making the talk show circuit promoting his campaign-documentary film "Mitt," joined late-night host Jimmy Fallon Friday to "slow jam" the news.

The former Massachusetts governor, who also gave Fallon an interview on the show, mimicked a news host and played straight man in the bit, reading news about the many issues facing the United States, reports The Hill, including debt, unemployment and the National Security Agency's surveillance program.

Story continues below video.

“In just four days, President [Barack] Obama will speak to the American people about some of the most important issues facing our nation today,” Romney said of the upcoming State of the Union address. “From unemployment and debt, to immigration reform and education, as well as one of our most pressing concerns, the recent revelations that U.S. citizens have been exposed to widespread NSA wiretapping.”

"Ahh, yeah," Fallon crooned, in his best Barry White-like voice. "President Obama looked the American people up and down and said, 'I'd tap that.' But then NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden whipped out his whistle and started blowing.”

Romney also said people are waiting to see if Obama will address the many technical issues surrounding Obamacare, "not to mention an Obamacare website that has been riddled with technical problems and glitches," to which Fallon responded, "Glitch please. You gotta listen to the Mitt Man, he had a program that worked for the people of Massachusetts and let's say it didn't suffer from any performance problems in the hardware department."

And Romney once again reiterated that he's not running for president, but will support a Republican candidate "100 percent."

"Don't you mean 47 percent?" Fallon said.

"That's a low blow, but it's pretty funny," Romney replied.

Romney joined a long line of people who have joined Fallon and Roots bandleader Questlove to "slow jam" the news, including Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
