Stephen Colbert makes Billy Bush listen to 'Access Hollywood' tape

"Anyone who knows me knows these words don't reflect who I am. I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize", Trump said in a video released in October of a year ago. According to Bush, the president's remarks felt he was "doing his bit". "And I don't think he [disputes that]". You don't get to say that", Bush said, adding in response to Trump, "That is your voice. "We now know better", Bush said in the op-ed. In the piece, Bush also discussed his concerns about the implications of Trump's "revisionist history" regarding the recording, saying "I can only imagine how it has reopened the wounds of the women who came forward with their stories about him, and did not receive enough attention".

"Everybody had to kiss the ring of Donald because he was making the big money for NBC at the time", he said. Like, you know, an Andrew Dice Clay performance. "President Trump is now indulging in some revisionist history, reportedly telling allies, including at least one United States senator, that the voice on the tape is not his", Bush wrote, adding, "This has hit a raw nerve in me". You figure, well that's not Dice when he's home. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real. Trump's denial "infuriated me on the personal front, and then I ended up googling, and I read an article with all these women's accounts [of Trump harassment], because when that article first came out, it was 13 days after I'd been fired, so I was in my own personal shock", Bush said.

"None of us were guilty of knowingly enabling our future president", he said. Last week, Lauer was sacked from Today after an employee accused him of sexual misconduct in the workplace. He told me that he went privately to the bosses ...
