Jeb Bush Slow Jams Announcement
Jeb Bush slow jams his own news.
He's no Brian Williams, but Jeb Bush seems willing to test his popularity on the largest stages he can find. Last night, the white-knuckled presumed heir to the Republican throne joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to slow jam his official announcement that he is seeking the Republican nomination for president.
On a day when Donald Trump upped the polarizing carnivalization of the 2016 primary, Bush seemed to appear – if for few reasons other than the culling of popular appeal – wanting to offer a different type of infotainment to the race. In an already packed Republican field, this could be the characteristic that sets him apart from the others.
In this slow jam, Bush reaffirms his position on immigration reform while allowing Fallon and The Roots to steal the show with some bawdy innuendo.
