There are no specific details at present. But NBC has suspended Billy Bush from the “Today” show until further notice following his participation in the now infamous 2005 video with Donald Trump in a crude conversation about women while anchoring “Access Hollywood.”
“Today” Executive Producer Noah Oppenheim said in a memo Sunday that “there is simply no excuse for Billy’s language and behavior on that tape.” Bush, who hosts the third hour of the “Today” show, has been suspended “pending further review of the matter,” Oppenheim said.
On the tape, Trump bragged about kissing, groping and trying to have sex with women who were not his wife. Bush joins in, laughing at some of Trump’s comments and later encouraging an actress to hug Trump.
This past summer, Bush was criticized for defending Ryan Lochte on “Today.”
