Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg participated in Jimmy Fallon’s “Slow Jam the News” segment on Monday’s episode of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”
In the segment, Fallon’s guest details the news while Fallon gives the information a sensual spin and the Roots lead singer Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter adds in some slow jams. Barack Obama participated in the segment in 2016.
“I want to talk about you and the needs of everyday Americans,” Buttigieg begins.
Fallon comes in to give Buttigieg’s comments a sexy angle saying, “Pete Buttigieg wants to satisfy all your needs. Ever since he declared his candidacy, America’s been all hot and bothered for him. And now Mayor Pete’s going all in.”
The South Bend, Ind. mayor also reminds the crowd he was the first 2020 presidential Democratic candidate to appear on a Fox News segment because he wants “to invite everyone to join this campaign—Democrats and Republicans.”
“Democrats and Republicans? So what you’re saying is…you go both ways?” Fallon asks.
Buttigieg replies with the punch line, “No, I’m just gay.”
Buttigieg also sat down with Fallon for an interview where he discussed the 2020 presidential election, how he forced Jerry Seinfeld to accept the keys to South Bend and more.
