Mitt Romney weighed in on Zayn Malik quitting One Direction during a bit on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” In the sketch, called “Mitt In The Mirror,” Romney had a conversation with himself in the mirror, with his reflection being Fallon, who was dressed and sounded fairly like the former presidential candidate. At one point, while discussing the “important issues” facing Americans, Romney mentioned the Middle East, immigration, and “now Zayn quit One Direction,” before adding sarcastically, “thanks Obama!” Check out the video below!

Romney, who was a guest on the “Tonight Show,” talked to his mirror image (Fallon) in his dressing room before going out for his actual interview. He said he was going to fight Evander Holyfield in a charity boxing match, prompting his reflection to say, “Guess it won’t be the first time we lose to a black guy.” Romney also mocked how the president plays golf all the time and took a jab at Hillary Clinton. At one point in the sketch, Romney receives an email, which his mirror image asks, “Is it work for personal?” Romney answers, “Well, the email’s from Hillary Clinton, so both.”

The former Massachusetts governor then told his reflection that for his interview with Fallon, “Maybe I should take about the important issues facing our great nation. We’ve got turmoil in the Middle East, an immigration crisis here at home, and now Zayn quit One Direction… thanks Obama!” Romney’s reflection added that “Zayn was my favorite one,” before singing “Best Song Ever.” Check out the video below, and tell us what you think about Romney’s appearance with Jimmy Fallon on the “Tonight Show”?
