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.DONATE
