In the latest jab at Mitt Romney for his vow to cut funding to public television, Jimmy Fallon spoofs the GOP presidential candidate on tonight’s “Late Night.” The segment is called “Mister Romney’s Neighborhood,” and is a pretty clever take off on PBS’ classic “Mister Rogers.”
Fallon as Romney (as Fred Rogers) answers the door to a special visitor in the way of Barack Obama. When Obama corrects Romney on how many years he’ll be president (eight, not four), Fallon’s Romney says, “See kids, Mr. Obama just did something called using your imagination.”
The sketch allows for some equal opportunity ribbing when Romney announces the trolley’s trip to The Neighborhood of Make-Believe: “That’s where me and Paul Ryan get most of our facts from.”
The segment airs on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” tonight on NBC.
