Billionaires Reportedly Wanted to Pay Trump to Drop Out of the 2016 Race
That was the tape that caused an uproar - but obviously did not derail - Trump's 2016 presidential campaign when the candidate was heard boasting to Bush that as a celebrity, he can "do anything" with women, including "grab them by the pussy". We've got powerful people being held accountable now, and sometimes there's anonymous sources.
"It was a hard time.it was very hot emotionally in the country". Let's take down a powerful guy together. haha.' No they don't. and I say you're reopening wounds on them too. "Stop playing around with people's lives".
Last night, Bush appeared on "Late Night With Stephen Colbert" to give his most detailed explanation yet about how the tape came about.
He told Colbert he was offended by Trump's denial personally and on behalf of the women who have gone on the record to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct.
"There's a lot that needs to be done on that front", Bush said.
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. "He wasn't the president, it was a different kind of scene, but yet when he says is relevant even to this day and it gets into whole other discussion - sexual harassment - but at that point, I never imagined that Donald would run for president".
At the time of the tape, Trump's show, "The Apprentice", was one of NBC's biggest headliners.
Bush said he was confused as well. "He gets going and I don't think he really knows", he said.
"He's got the hand up; I'm going into my little cabin to do the work", said Bush.
Though Bush acknowledged that the last year-plus has been "a hard time", he also praised the current cultural shift surrounding sexual assault - and urged the public to keep it going. "My boss. months later said publicly that I think we may have moved a little quickly". "We have to find our way to have the dialogue", he said. "He told me that he went privately to the bosses", he recalled. Back in October 2016, Bush was sacked from his position at the Today show as a result of the aforementioned tape, in which Bush laughed as Trump detailed the way in which he could supposedly force himself upon women.
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.
