With so many sexual assault allegations being pinned on various men of power from politics to the entertainment industry. Many of these men are stepping down from their positions of great power because of their admission of guilt.
President Trump was one one of these men. During the 2016 campaign election, an old audio surfaced in October of President Trump speaking vulgarly to former “Access Hollywood” host, Billy Bush, of how he sexually mistreats women and gets away with it because of his celebrity status.
Bush was immedaitely terminated from his current position with the “Today Show,” and President Trump released a statement apologizing for his behavior in the tape, “I said it, I was wrong, and I apologize.”
Now President Trump is in the news questioning the authenicity of the audio tape, saying the voice is not his.
Billy Bush has come out for the first time to publicly speak about Trump’s questioning of the audio. “Of course he said it,” Bush wrote in an opinion article in the New York Times about it.
“We laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator,” he added. “Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real.”
Bush is the nephew of former President George H.W. Bush. Bush will be making a special guest appearance on the late night Stephen Colbert show Monday.
