President Barack Obama joined "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon on Thursday's show to "Slow Jam The News," reviving a routine the two started four years ago.

Obama brought some sharp verses, including, "Orange is not the new black," targeting GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

"Hello, I’m President Barack Obama, and I too, would like to slow jam this news," Obama said as the "The Tonight Show" band, The Roots, kicked into a slinky groove.

Obama touted the successes of his administration, including action on climate change, same-sex marriage and the Affordable Care Act.

"In short, climate change is real, health care is affordable, and love is love," Obama said.

Fallon was there on backing vocals to make it kinda creepy.

"Ohhhhh yeah. President Obama stimulated long-term growth," Fallon crooned in a sultry voice. "In 2008, the country wasn’t feeling in the mood. It was too tired, stressed -- said it had a headache. Barack lit some candles and got some silky satin sheets. Told the American people, 'Yes, we can.'"

"There will be no third term," Obama said. "I can’t stay forever. Besides, Daddy’s got a Hawaiian vacation booked in about 223 days, but who’s counting! That being said, the American people face an important decision this fall. The entire world is watching and they look to us for stability and leadership. Now, I know some of the presidential candidates have been critical of my foreign policy. I don’t want to name any names."

But the name was named, by Black Thought of The Roots. "He’s talking about Donald Trump."

Obama went on to challenge those who have criticized his administration's Iran nuclear deal, rekindled diplomatic ties with Cuba, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.

"Now wait a minute Prez Dispenser," Fallon chimed. "Are you saying you are down with TPP?"

"Yeah, you know me," Obama replied.

The show was taped Wednesday, a day before Obama announced his endorsement of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 race.

To cap it off, Obama, perhaps for the last time, dropped the mic.

The first Obama-Fallon "Slow Jam" was in 2012, when Fallon referred to the president as "Preezy of the United Steezy." Thankfully, Fallon did not say that again.
