Kimmel tried to get into the presidential limo with “Veep’s” Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus). She declined, but her chauffeur offered to let him sit up front. And the driver was none other than Jeb Bush. “I’m between jobs,” he explained. He was even wearing a uniform, topped off with a little hat.
His comic timing was surprisingly impressive as he delivered a few choice lines.
“Are you nominated?” Bush asked Kimmel, and the late-night host replied yes. “Wow, what’s that like?” Bush asked.
Bush then asked whether Kimmel thought he could win, but Kimmel wasn’t so sure.
“If you run a positive campaign, the voters will ultimately make the right choice,” Bush said. Kimmel seemed heartened until Bush said, “Jimmy, that was a joke,” then threw him out of the limo.
All this raises the question: Where was all that energy when he was campaigning?
