Jeb Bush Pokes Fun at Himself in Emmys Opening

Jeb Bush Pokes Fun at Himself in Emmys Opening

Surprise cameo from the former presidential candidate.

There’s seriously nothing better than when people can make fun of themselves and laugh about it. Former GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush did just that in the opening for the Emmys Sunday night. He posed as an Uber driver to get Jimmy Kimmel to the show on time to host:

“I’m in between jobs right now,” the former Florida governor tells Kimmel.

Kimmel tells Bush he has to get to the Emmys.

“Are you nominated?” Bush asks. “Wow, What’s the like?”

Bush then gives Kimmel a piece of advice:

“Here’s what I know, if you run a positive campaign, the voters ultimately will make the right choice.”

“You know it’s funny you say that — ” Kimmel responds.

“Jimmy, that was a joke,” Bush says, kicking Kimmel out of the car.

“Jeb exclamation point!” Bush says, mocking his campaign logo, as he speeds away.

Where was this Jeb during the primary?! His campaign was low key and not very…loud despite adding that exclamation point. Who knew that Jeb could be hilarious?

His short appearance received rave reviews from people on both sides of the aisle.

Bush has not shown himself in the public much since he suspended his presidential campaign. In May, his niece Jenna Bush Hager said he’s doing very well and happy to return to a private life. Last month, he appeared on a radio show to talk about GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump. He told Rita Crosby he thinks the nominee doesn’t actually believe in anything and acts like this whole process is just a game.

No Jeb, we are not laughing with you, we are laughing at you…and not in a good way.

What are the Emmy’s and who is Jeb? Thanks for keeping us up to date on pop culture. Heaven knows I don’t watch these self-aggrandizing award shows wherein celebrities give themselves and each other awards for who can trash our culture the most.

Now, refresh my memory: What part of speech is “Jeb!”? – verb, adverb, or just the end of a painfully long sentence?

I remember at the very beginning, thinking it was pretentious to put an exclamation point after his name – which being an unusual name to begin with, could have been remembered easily without an exclamation point. And then “Jeb!” turned into a joke, as people used his slogan as his name.

In other news people are still apparently watching the Emmys.

I thought they went the way of daytime soaps.

At last, Ole’ Jeb has found a suitable occupation. Drive on, Jebbie. Drive on!

Please clap.

I thought it was well done, especially for someone who’s not an actor. He must be relieved that he’s no longer in the race.

If Jeb had won the nomination they would have been calling him Adolf Hitler.

I’m so happy that Jeb found time to yuk it up with the enemy. I hear they let him sit at their table during lunch. T

The left’s other useful GOPe idiot.

(The other being McCain.)

There is a joke here, just not the one Jeb! thinks it is.

This was pretty funny….have a sense of humor, Trumpers. I’ve been with you on a lot of stuff.
