Billy Bush, a member of the Bush family including two former presidents, became a well-known name after a Donald Trump tape surfaced just weeks before the 2016 presidential election. Trump was reportedly heard talking on a bus with Bush, and others, making inappropriate sexual comments.
After the tape was leaked, Trump apologized and admitted he was wrong. New reports from ABC News claim that Trump has recently been privately denying that the voice on the tape was his, which “infuriated” and “upset” Bush.
In an interview with Stephen Colbert on Monday, Bush responded to Trump’s denying of the recording. This was also the same day that Bush’s editorial for The New York Times titled, “Billy Bush: Yes, Donald Trump, You Said That” was published.
Bush stated, “When he said [that wasn’t his voice], it infuriated me on the personal front...Enough's enough. Stop playing around with people's lives,” he said referring to the previous sexual misconduct allegations against Trump. “That upset me."
He continued discussing the hardships in his life after the release of the tape, regretting spending time with a man who he “did not respect.” He called it “ironic” that Trump became President of the United States, while he got fired and had to do some soul searching, reported ABC.
In his interview, he also revealed that after his fallout, Matt Lauer attempted to help him. Lauer was recently fired from NBC after several sexual misconduct allegations came out against him.
The full interview will not be shown on Faith Family America due to profane language. Watch a clip from the interview below:
This news comes shortly after Billy Bush was hospitalized. He was reportedly hit in the head with a golf ball, suffering very minor injuries.
