Jeb Bush was the breakout star of the 2016 Emmy Awards, where he stole the show in a hilarious opening skit playing an Uber driver (opposite host Jimmy Kimmel).
In the skit, a desperate Kimmel searches for a ride to the Emmys and steps into a limousine driven by former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
“I’m in between jobs right now,” Jeb tells a surprised Jimmy. “Did you know you can make $12 an hour driving for Uber?”
Kimmel replies that he’s in a hurry to get to the Emmys, and Bush asks if he’s nominated for an award.
Jimmy says yes, and Jeb replies: “Wow! What’s that like?”
After Jimmy replies that there’s a lot of competition to win, Bush offers some sage words of advice: “If you run a positive campaign, the voters ultimately will make the right choice.”
When Kimmel starts to blab on about what his psychic said, Jeb interrupts, saying, “Jimmy, that was a joke.”
Bush then kicks Kimmel out of his limo after berating him: “And shave that wig off your face, you godless Hollywood hippie!”

Jeb, who was slammed as “low energy” by Republican rival Donald Trump, was widely praised for his hilarious comedic timing and deadpan delivery.
“Loved @JebBush #Emmys cameo…funny stuff!” wrote one Twitter fan.
Another chimed in: “Hats off to Jeb for his Emmy cameo … very funny! Made me like him! Where was that guy when fighting Trump?”
Meanwhile, a political science professor with a near-perfect accuracy record predicts Trump is a shoe-in to beat Hillary Clinton in November.
Helmut Norpoth of Stony Brook University says Trump has an 87% chance of winning the election based on his statistical model, which has predicted the winner of the popular vote 100% of the time since it was launched in 1996.
Professor Norpoth said his statistical model has a 96% rate of accuracy when analyzing all U.S. presidential elections dating back to 1912.
“For elections from 1912 to 2012, the Primary Model picks the winner every time except in 1960 [when John F. Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon],” said Norpoth, co-author of The American Voter Revisited.
