Billy Bush Suspended After Lewd Donald Trump Video Leak [VIDEO]
'Today' host Billy Bush has been suspended by NBC, following his role in the 2005 video in which he conversed with Donald Trump, who was making lewd, degrading comments about women.
In a statement to the New York Times, NBC'S Noah Oppenheim says “We’ve all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours.” “Let me be clear: There is simply no excuse for Billy’s language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter.”
This video, obtained by the Washington Post, features Donald Trump making comments about women which some have labeled potentially predatory.
NBC has not indicated how long Bush's suspension will last, or if he will be allowed to return to the network, as host of the third hour of Today.
