"Tape was weaponized"; Billy Bush on Trump

Billy Bush says everyone at NBC and Access Hollywood knew there was a tape of Donald Trump saying inappropriate things about women, but that the now-president was considered one of their biggest guests, so he didn't challenge him.

Bush is returning to work as a television host three years after being fired over the tape.

"Tape was weaponized"; Billy Bush on Trump



NO USE ABC AMERICA, FOX, CNN, UNIVISION, TELEMUNDO, BBC AMERICA, NBC, OR THEIR DIGITAL/MOBILE PLATFORMS. Billy Bush, the former host of Access Hollywood, is explaining why he went along and did not challenge Donald Trump in 2005 when the then host of "The Apprentice" was recorded speaking about groping women.

Bush says everyone at the network, NBC, knew there was a tape, but he did not expect the recording to become "weaponized." That tape was released on October 7, 2016, barely one month before the U.S. national election.

The tape was leaked to the Washington Post, which reported, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and television host Billy Bush having "an extremely lewd conversation about women" in 2005.

Bush lost his job as the host of Access Hollywood over how he responded to Trump's claims. Bush now says Trump was considered a valuable guest and that they were always anxious that segments end well.

In 2016, the tape caused a political uproar, with key Republicans withdrawing their support for Trump's candidacy.

Now, Billy Bush is starting a new job as the host of Extra, another entertainment program.

He says he is a different person now.
