Billy Bush outrage over Trump denial of 'grab them by the pussy'

"And I sort of equated what he was saying to some kind of, you know, crass standup act, like an Andrew Dice Clay performance", Bush said.

Bush also brought up the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault.

"Look, he, last week, for some reason came out with: That's not my voice on the tape". "It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said of Trump's decision to reopen the issue at this juncture. All of these women came out with their names and told their detailed accounts.

"If I had thought there was a man detailing a sexual assault strategy to me, I would have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation, not just my executive producer", Bush stated.

"As I read these, I said, 'Twenty women don't get together and say, 'Hey, you know what would be really fun? Let's take down a powerful guy together'".

"Enough's enough. stop playing around with people's lives", he said, referring to Trump's latest alleged private suggestion that it was not him on the 2005 tape. "So I wrote [the op-ed]".

Bush, the nephew of former president George H.W. Bush, said that he hadn't educated himself on sexual harassment accusations against Trump when they emerged shortly after the "Access Hollywood" tape was released because he had recently been terminated from NBC, but has recently done so.

"At the time, it was 2005", he continued, setting the scene. While President Trump remained adamant that it was not his voice, Bush called out his statement.

"He was regaling the seven guys that were on the bus doing his bit".

"If I had thought there was a man detailing a sexual assault strategy to me, I would've called the Federal Bureau of Investigation, not just reported it to my executive producer. You are culture warriors at the forefront of necessary change".

Bush condemned President Trump for reportedly claiming that the voice on the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape isn't his.

"It was a gut punch, and it is a gut punch now, and it will always be", Bush said. "I think he meant [himself] ... which I was totally confused and backwards". "I will say, I would have liked the chance to have been able to address the audience that following Monday".

"Colbert cracked, "'I took her furniture shopping.' Does that seem like common foreplay to you?"

Billy Bush is getting his second shot at fame-or is it infamy?- thanks to Donald Trump. He said as he checked into his cabin, he saw a TV screen with Mr. Trump on it.

And it appears that some of the higher ups at NBC regret Billy's firing - and Matt Lauer even defended him. I think it was very hot, emotionally in the country. "A lot of people were not comfortable with the man who was close to winning the election and a lot of things happened quickly". If we let Trump get away with saying it wasn't him, it's as sure a sign as any that he has successfully destroyed the concept of truth in the public discourse.

"He said it. Of course he said it", Bush wrote.

When it comes to the national conversation of victims reporting sexual abuse and harrasment, he said, "Women must be believed".
