Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, came face-to-face with "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon -- literally.

For the skit “Mitt in the Mirror,” Romney had a deep discussion with the person he saw in a mirror, which was Fallon doing a spot-on parody of Romney.

Romney announced in January that he would not be running for president again. During the skit, Romney said in the mirror, “Well, actually I’m a little nervous. Jimmy is probably going to ask me why I didn’t run for president. What should I say?”

“Just tell him you enjoy the freedom. You get to sit back, relax, golf all the time, go on vacation whenever you want,” Fallon-as-Romney replied.

“Aka, be president?” Romney asked.

When Fallon asked about the upcoming fight with Evander Holyfield, Romney said, “It’s all in good fun -- it’s for charity. What’s the worst that can happen?”

Fallon joked in reply: “That’s true, I guess it won't be the first time we lose to a black guy.”

Romney got a few more punches in during the sketch, knocking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and blaming President Barack Obama for Zayn Malik's departure from the band One Direction.
