Billy Bush to Trump: 'Enough's enough'

Billy Bush to Trump: 'Enough's enough'

Former "Access Hollywood" and "Today" host Billy Bush, left, talks to Stephen Colbert Monday on CBS" "The Late Show'.

What struck me watching Bush on Colbert is that, after a year-plus since the release of that tape, Bush still seems strikingly uninsightful about his role in this kind of cultural exchange. As Bush told Colbert, "No question, I feel like I sacrificed a little bit of myself in the moment". All of these women came out with their names and told their detailed accounts.

He continued: "20 women don't get together and say, 'Hey you know what would be really fun?" And when you're a star, they let you do it. "Stop playing around with people's lives".

"No one would have printed this, unless the story had come back around again by Donald Trump privately denying it". I was there. You were there. "You have my respect and admiration", he wrote in the Times. "You are culture warriors at the forefront of necessary change". You can do anything. Bush reiterated Monday what he wrote in a Sunday night New York Times op-ed piece - that it was in fact Trump's voice in the tape.

Bush added that he didn't necessarily take Trump literally, likening his comments to "a crass standup act. like an Andrew "Dice" Clay performance", referring to the once-controversial comedian. Indeed, the frequent requirement to suck up to celebrity, to be polite to people who often are not polite to you, is one big reason I decided long ago to avoid interviewing famous folks as much as possible.

This is the same ankle Curry had two surgeries on earlier in his career and shortened his 2011-12 season. Just wanted to get back here and get ice on it and get the rehab process start as soon as possible".

"You worked on the Today Show", Colbert told his guest, who was making his first late-night appearance in over a year.

Bush said that it took some time after his departure before he began reading the accounts of the women who had publicly leveled allegations against Trump. "He gets going and I don't think he really knows", he said.

"They are coming after me to try and destroy what is considered by even them the greatest movement in the history of our country".

Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, Billy Bush, and Matt Lauer appear on NBC's "Today" show at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

Bush also said that unlike Trump, who "spent 14 minutes on this and went on to become president", he'd spent the last 14 months of his life "dealing with this".

"We kind of have to find our way to have the dialogue".

Clearly, this is a great opportunity for Bush to try to rehabilitate himself in the public eye.

Bush also said that he is "finally lucky" because he recently survived getting hit in the head with a golf club; a doctor told him if it had hit him slightly above where it did, he could have died. Everything's going to be OK.' It's just instinctively what you say to your daughter.

Colbert noted that the moment of reckoning began with Harvey Weinstein (whose own alleged history of sexual misconduct was made public October 5, nearly exactly a year after the Access Hollywood tape leak) and hasn't stopped. "They weren't amusing, '" the father described.

"It was the beginning of me saying, 'All right, get up, stop being sorry for yourself, stop worrying about these things".
