Watch: Jeb Bush Stuns Emmy Viewers as Jimmy Kimmel’s Uber Driver

Where has Jeb Bush been all these months? After suspending his campaign in February, the former Forida Republican governor arrived at the Emmys in style. No, Jeb wasn't walking the red carpet; he was playing Jimmy Kimmel's Uber driver. 


"Hey, you're driving me?" Kimmel asks after Jeb makes his surprise cameo appearance.

"Yeah, I'm in between jobs right now," Bush admitted, though he was excited about his termporary gig's pay, $12 an hour. 

Kimmel told Bush he'd need a ride to the Emmys.

“Are you nominated?” Bush asked incredulously.

“I am, yeah,” Kimmel said.

Bush was shocked.

“Wow,” Bush replied. “What’s that like?”

He then decided to give Kimmel some advice about winning. 

“Here’s what I know. If you run a positive campaign, the voters ultimately will make the right choice," Bush told Kimmel, reiterating his 2016 election message. 

“You know it’s funny you say that….” Kimmel began.

“Jimmy, that was a joke,” Bush exclaimed. “Get out of the car. And shave that wig off your face, you godless Hollywood hippie.”

Leaving on a cliffhanger, Bush drove off shouting "Jeb, exclamation point."

As he peels out, the camera reveals a Jeb! 2020 bumper-sticker on the vehicle.
