New Jersey Governor 'slow jams' the news with Jimmy Fallon

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stopped by NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to participate in the popular bit 'Slow Jamming the News", a bit made famous by NBC newsman Brian Williams, and President Barack Obama.

In the bit, Gov. Christie may have dropped some hints about his potential run for president in 2016.

"Now look at you sounding all presidential like," Fallon interjected. "You got something you want to announce on the show right now?"

"Come on Jimmy, do you really think I would come on this show to announce something like a presidential run?" the Republican governor shot back.

That's when Fallon's band The Roots started playing Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run."

"Look, we all know this election is going to cost taxpayers some money, but these costs can't be measured against having an elected member of the United States Senate," Christie said over the sound of smooth jazz. "That's why I'm throwing my full weight behind this decision."

That's when Fallon jumped in: "Oh come on now Christie Cream Donut, how are you gonna be setting me up like that? It's too easy. It's not even funny."
