Jeb Bush Slow Jams in Two Tongues with Jimmy Fallon

Alan Rappeport, New York Times, June 18, 2015

Jeb Bush got the “slow jam” treatment from Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday night, and he reiterated in rhyme that he was finally ready to hit the campaign trail and have “spirited debates” with his fellow Republicans about how to solve America’s problems.


“While we’re talking about the issues, where do you stand on immigration?” Mr. Fallon, host of the “Tonight Show,” asked.


“We are a nation of immigrants, and I believe everyone should have the chance to achieve the American dream,” Mr. Bush said over the music, before offering the Spanish translation. “Somos una nación de inmigrantes, y creo que todo el mundo debería tener la oportunidad de alcanzar el sueño americano.”
