Mitt Romney was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and let out a bit of his comedic side, something that is always refreshing to see for a man widely criticized for being too stiff and boring.
Romney did a bit where he talks to his reflection in the mirror prior to going on the show. The ‘reflection’ was actually Fallon imitating Romney.
The first joke out of the gate took a swipe at President Obama for his love of golf and vacations.
Romney: Jimmy’s probably going to ask me why I decided not to run for President. What should I say?
Mirror Mitt: Just tell him you enjoy the freedom. You get to sit back relax, golf all the time, go on vacation whenever you want.
Romney: AKA, be President.
Mirror Mitt: Good one, me.
The real Romney then said, “You know me, I love to laugh.” He then followed it up with a stiff, robotic “Ha … Ha, ha, ha.”
Romney also did some more self-deprecating humor. When discussing his upcoming charity bout with Evander Holyfield, ‘Mirror Mitt’ responded, “I guess it won’t be the first time we lose to a black guy.”

Romney also blames Obama for Zayn leaving One Direction.
So what do you think of Romney’s sense of humor in this bit? Is it nice to see a more human side of the former Republican candidate?
