But the Tonight Show host turned in a passable impression of Mitt Romney Wednesday night when the former presidential candidate appeared on Fallon’s show.
The segment’s conceit is a loose one. Romney, 68, is psyching himself up in the mirror before his interview, and Fallon is playing his reflection. Fallon has fun with some of Romney’s mannerisms, including his oddly intoned laugh, and Romney proves a great sport throughout.
Later on, during the actual interview, Romney revealed some details on his upcoming charity boxing match with Evander Holyfield (“It’s gonna be a very quick bout,” Romney joked). Aside from discussing the charity that the fight will benefit, he showed a clip of his 2-year-old grandson Winston “training” him for the fight.
Taking on Holyfield might be kind of easy after standing up to that kind of abuse.
