Billy Bush Rips Trump Over Pussy Grab Tape on Stephen Colbert

Mike Pence Trump Access Hollywood Tape

Former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush delivered the highest ratings for Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" since an August interview with former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. For almost 13 minutes, Bush spoke with Stephen Colbert about the entire ordeal.

When Colbert pointed out that there was no audience, Bush said that he and the crew on the bus were Mr. Trump's audience. As of last week, the president started telling people the voice on the tape wasn't his. "Because I was there, and the last 14 months of my life I have been dealing with it", Bush said.

Billy Bush confirmed that President Donald Trump did indeed say "grab 'em by the p*ssy", among many other unacceptable comments about harassing and assaulting women, in a searing op-ed published by The New York Times. However, Bush wanted the President to be held accountable for his past actions as countless women have stepped forward to talk about how the Commander-in-Chief harassed them. "Let's take down a powerful guy together.' No they don't", he continued.

"I said, ok, 'You're opening wounds on them, too".

"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.

"The first time I ever heard it was three days before it leaked". "It's a gut punch now".

Bush, who got fired from the Today show in the aftermath, spoke about the scandal during The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. While Colbert commented that the video camera was not exactly on the President, Bush thought President Trump's commentary was an act.


"He was just regaling the seven guys on there and doing his bit", he said.

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

Although Trump apologized a year ago for such comments, he has recently been investigating whether that really was his voice on the tape, with The New York Times reporting that he has been suggesting it was not actually his voice. "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 reported it to my executive producer", he said. "He gets going and I don't think he really knows", he said. "I don't think CBS would let me".

"Matt Lauer controlled that show. Do you wish he would have protected you?" "I was with him a lot", Bush told Colbert. "I said, 'I appreciated it, ' and accepted it and thanked him".

When Colbert asked what Bush thought of the recent cultural shift and the notion that women need to be believed, Bush agreed, saying that "Women must be believed". "I'm anxious that the dialogue isn't going to be around, because we get on to the next thing, we get on to our phones, the next outrage comes. We have to continue it all the way through, and I hope we do that".

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