Jimmy Kimmel let Jeb Bush steal the show during the pre-taped portion of his monologue while hosting the Emmys 2016 Awards Sunday night.

Jeb! Bush’s Emmy Cameo

In the clip, Kimmel is in need of a ride to bring him to the Emmys. Enter, former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, who’s working as an Uber driver in the bit.

“I’m in between jobs right now,” the politician explained, adding, “You know you can make $12 an hour driving for Uber?” Bush, who famously failed to earn the Republican presidential nomination, asked Kimmel if he was nominated at the Emmys this year. When the late night host answered in the affirmative, Bush asked him, “Wow. What’s that like?”

Bush went on to deadpan, “If you run a positive campaign, the voters will ultimately make the right choice.” When it appeared Kimmel was taking the comment seriously, Bush interjected to say, “Jimmy, that was a joke, get out of the car. And shave that wig off your face you godless Hollywood hippie.”

Speeding off, Bush yelled, “Jeb Exclamation Point!”

On Twitter, Bush continued the gag, writing, “Hey, @jimmykimmel, I’m giving you 5 stars! How about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know?”
