Now that Mitt Romney will not be running for president, he has a lot more time on his hands to start wars with Iran and polish his personal brand by appearing on a slew of late-night television programs.

Romney stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Wednesday to participate in Jimmy's classic "Jimmy in the Mirror" sketch which attempted to make Romney look like a fun-loving, "current" -- and most importantly, self-aware -- guy. Topics ranged from Zayn quitting One Direction to Hillary Clinton's email controversy to Uber.

"Jimmy is probably going to ask me why I decided not to run for president. What should I say?" Romney asks his reflection (Jimmy). "Just tell 'em you enjoy the freedom. You get to sit back and relax and golf all the time. Go on vacation whenever you want," Fallon responds. "AKA: be president," Romney quips.
