NBC suspended Billy Bush from Today last week, after a 2005 recording of Donald Trump surfaced. In the tape you can hear Trump saying some lewd comments about women. What many didn’t realize at first was that it was Billy Bush, a new co-host on the Today Show, that was laughing along with Trump in the recording. The Washington Post published the recording Friday that captured the conversation and Bush — then a host on the news-entertainment program — is heard laughing and joking with Trump.
Bush has been working for NBC for 15 years and it would seem as though it may be unfair for them to just kick him out like that. But according to some reports, Billy Bush has always been a “Boys will be boys” type of guy. In a 2002 interview with Jennifer Lopez that recently resurfaced online, Bush wasted no time in asking about her butt in a live interview.
Bush, 44, has a birthday this week and it will be bitter sweet as rumors of him getting fired are surfacing online. Although there hasn’t been any confirmations, many people on Twitter seem to be divided on rather he should be fired or not. One question that has popped up is, ‘How can you expect more from a media show host that a Presidential candidate?” Regardless of what you think, it’s kinda of crazy for this to come out right before the election and during domestic violence awareness month.
When you think about Billy being involved with this scandal, it make you think that maybe Al Roker was trying to warn us months ago.
