#13332 closed bug (fixed)

.closest("*") yields input even for non-element nodes

Ref. #13265.

.closest passes text/comment/etc. nodes directly to Sizzle, which assumes all input to be elements, so .closest("*") is erroneously an identity mapping.

Seems like it can easily be fixed, but I suspect it hasn't been reported because it's really rare to get into that situation. For events we make sure the event target is an element, and it would seem really rare for anyone to use .contents() or serialize HTML with top-level text nodes or and then use .closest().

Indeed. This is paired with #13265 in my mind, and they should either fix or wontfix together. A fix looks like https://github.com/jquery/jquery/pull/1146.
