The leaked 2005 “Access Hollywood” videotape showing Billy Bush and Donald Trump making lewd and sexually aggressive remarks about women, has now officially hurt Bush more than Trump because Bush has been cut from NBC’s Today show.
According to CNN, the decision to let Bush go came Monday afternoon after the network spent over a week negotiating the terms of departure with him and his lawyer.
Bush has since released his own statement.
“I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead,” he said.
Bush had started appearing on “Today” in August and now NBC will now have to find a replacement for him as a co-host of the 9 a.m. hour.
