Billy Bush broke down in tears after audio of him making lewd comments about women with Donald Trump was released this past Friday. Bush, who is married with three teenage daughters, released a statement shortly after the 2005 tape surfaced on Friday. ‘Obviously I’m embarrassed and ashamed. It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago. I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I’m very sorry,’ said Bush, who was 33 at the time.
A source tells US Weekly that the Today anchor quickly grew nervous that the tape would lead to him being fired from his new job, just two months after he joined the NBC morning show. Billy was devastated and crying when the leaked tape of him with Donald Trump in 2005 was first leaked to The Washington Post, said the source. He was crying that his career was over. Bush, 44, was seen for the first time since the news of his suspension on Monday afternoon, looking unkempt and scruffy as he grabbed lunch in Los Angeles with one of his three teenage daughters.
Billy, this is what happens when you are in bed with the Evil Empire. Your connections, through blood(Bush Oligarthy) could not even save you. You are just collateral damage. Not many knew who you were until this episode made the headlines, so no loss to NBC. Let’s face it, you were not smart enough. You needed to think like a politician, not a Hollywood mouth piece, with the future always top priority. Now you learned a lesson. So, take a break, and we will see you someday doing the late night weekend news from some obscure town in the upper mid west. What do you think?
