Billy Bush to Trump: 'Enough's enough'

Billy Bush to Trump: 'Enough's enough'”

The first is that the act of confronting Trump doubles as image rehab for Bush, whom NBC fired shortly after The Post published the tape in October 2016.

In his first interview since the Access Hollywood tapes, Billy Bush finally gets candid.

"It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said to Bush, then adding, "He's a dumb, dumb person".

The New York Times reported last week that Trump has told at least one us senator and other people that he didn't believe the voice on the tape was his - even though he directly confirmed the remarks and apologized for them a month before the presidential election past year. However, Bush cautioned that the effective dialogue that can achieve real solutions might not occur if a concerted effort is not made, especially in the middle of these politically uncertain times. Bush, 46, has not yet landed a comeback gig. The tabloid quoted a "media insider", who said, "Billy's ego is big".

That hasn't happened. The Daily Mail reported in July that Bush would host a reboot of the "Top 30" news show on Fox, but representatives for the network and Bush quickly shot down the story. "That is your voice; I was there; you were there; that's your voice on the tape", Bush replied.

He told Colbert he was offended by Trump's denial personally and on behalf of the women who have gone on the record to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.

"You're reopening wounds on them too", Bush said. "Ha ha.' No, they don't", said Bush.

"None of us were guilty of knowingly enabling our future president", he said. "You dealt with it for 14 minutes and went on to be the president".

The premise here is that Bush is not as bad as Trump but suffered a worse fate.

Former NBC personality Billy Bush is trying to be relevant again. "The very day he was swearing in as the 45th President of the United States, I was checking into this soul-searching retreat in Santalina, California, for nine days".

Back in October 2016, Bush was sacked from his position at the Today show as a result of the aforementioned tape, in which Bush laughed as Trump detailed the way in which he could supposedly force himself upon women.

"I would also like to say that's not me on that bus".

While Trump has yet to respond to or tweet about Bush's op-ed, the reiteration of Trump's guilt isn't happening in a vacuum as Bush notes that there were actually "seven other guys present on the bus".

Bush and Colbert wrapped up their conversation by discussing the myriad of recent sexual assault and harassment allegations against powerful men and collectively emphasized the importance of believing women.

Maybe he would have, but Bush's current narrative demands an bad lot of faith.
