Ex-presidential hopeful Jeb Bush made an appearance as a limo driver on Sunday in the opening joke of the Emmy Awards, asking host Jimmy Kimmel what it's like to be nominated.

Bush's brief appearance came at the end of a skit parodying Emmy-nominated shows including "Modern Family," "Veep" and "The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story."

Bush appeared in the skit dressed as a limo driver hailed by Kimmel as he frantically sought a ride to the annual television awards show in downtown Los Angeles.

 

 

 

"I'm in between jobs right now," says Bush, sporting a cap. "You know you can make $12 an hour driving for Uber?"

He then asks Kimmel what it's like to be nominated -- a self-effacing nod to his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination, which was eventually won by Donald Trump.
