Billy Bush to Trump: Yes, you said that

Times Trump accepted the 'Access Hollywood' tape

Times Trump accepted the ‘Access Hollywood’tape Billy Bush is reentering the general public eye, and he’s beginning by sending out a message to President Trump.

The piece was published online Sunday night, one day prior to Bush appears on “The Late Program with Stephen Colbert”– an interview that was arranged simply a few days ago.

Bush states he decided to speak up after report indicated that Trump has been casting doubt on the credibility of the so-called “Access Hollywood” tape.

On the 12-year-old tape, which resurfaced in the last weeks of the governmental election campaign in 2015, Bush and Trump spoke profanely about females– and Trump extolled sexual attack.

“When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything … Grab them by the p ****. You can do anything,” Trump stated while Bush chuckled along.

“Each and every single one of us assumed we were paying attention to a crass standup act. He was carrying out. Surely, we believed, none of this was genuine. We now understand much better,” Bush composed in his Times op-ed.

Bush lost his job on NBC’s “Today” program when the tape was published last year.

Trump won the election. However claims of sexual harassment and attack in his past have emerged through media coverage and advocacy efforts.

Bush composed recounted particular allegations made by 2 of the ladies, Jill Harth and Kristin Anderson, saying he believed them.

He said the New York Times and Washington Post reports about Trump doubting the tape have “struck a raw nerve in me.”

“I can just envision how it has reopened the wounds of the women who stepped forward with their stories about him, and did not receive enough attention,” Bush composed. “This country is presently attempting to reconcile itself to years of power abuse and sexual misbehavior. Its leader is wantonly poking the bear.”

Trump has flatly rejected the allegations against him. He recently repeated his assertion that he was simply appealing in “locker room talk” with Bush.

Amid a national numeration about harassment and abuse of power, White Home press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about the claims against Trump at a press instruction last month.

“This was prosecuted and definitely answered throughout the election by the frustrating assistance for the president and that he’s sitting here in the Oval Workplace today,” she said.

With an eye towards a return to television, Bush said in the Times piece that “this last year has actually been an odyssey, the likes of which I intend to never deal with once again: anger, stress and anxiety, betrayal, embarrassment, lots of self-centered but, I hope, reasonable feelings. These have actually provided method to light, both spiritual and intellectual. It’s been strengthening.”

He said he doesn’t need the “accouterments of fame to understand God and be happy.”

But Bush likewise hints that he has more to state. He said that he has “real ideas” about workplace harassment and gender discrimination but that they are “a story for another day.”

It’s unclear if Bush has other TV looks planned after his interview on Colbert on Monday night.
