'Mamala Kamala' Harris Becomes First Woman To 'Slow Jam The News' On 'Tonight Show'

“Ever since Barack left, we’ve been off track. But Kamala is trying to get us back to black," croons Tariq Trotter.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) became the first woman to “Slow Jam The News” on “The Tonight Show” Monday and, oh baby, it was “Hot Girl Summer.”

Host Jimmy Fallon joined Tariq Trotter of The Roots, and Harris rapped some sweet resistance.

“Ever since Barack left, we’ve been off track. But Kamala is trying to get us back to black,” Trotter crooned.

When Harris declared she aims to put an “end to fracking once and for all,” Fallon sang: “Mamala Kamala just don’t give a frack. She took a good look at Mother Earth and decided it’s a MILF: A Mother I’d Like to Fix.” 

Trotter chimed in: “The planet is a MILF, man. Awwright. When it comes to climate she’s a real front-runner. She’s heatin’ up like it’s still ‘Hot Girl Summer.’” 

Check out the video above to watch the segment.

Earlier this year, Fallon’s slow-jam franchise starred Harris’ fellow Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg. In 2012 — and 2016 — President Barack Obama showed everybody how it’s done.
