Billy Bush Suspended From 'Today' Show Over Trump Tape

Television personality Billy Bush hosts the Cinema Con Big Screen Achievement Awards show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas Nevada

"Today's" Billy Bush has been suspended indefinitely after video leaked of his vulgar banter with Donald Trump... but how is he handling the scandal?

NBC suspended Bush on October 9 from his hosting gig of the third hour of the morning show.

"Let me be clear - there is simply no excuse for Billy's language and behavior on that tape", network executive Noah Oppenheim reportedly told staffers in a memo.

Billy Bush is reportedly set to exit the "Today Show", sources told The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. Bush laughed and egged him on, even as the conversation turned from apparent sexual assault to Trump revealing his plans to "seduce" Bush's "Access Hollywood" co-host Nancy O'Dell. With that said, let's turn to last night's debate, where that 2005 tape played a big role. But "Today", in a tight race with "Good Morning America", can ill afford to anger women viewers who make up the core of its audience at that hour.

"I've gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her", Trump said.

The Republican party nominee has said "these words don't reflect who I am".

Ryan may have to watch his back after distancing from Trump
Billy Long told the Springfield News-Leader that abandoning Trump would "spell disaster down-ticket" for Republican legislators. Ryan said Clinton's "stronger together" slogan actually means, "We are stronger if we are all subject to the state".

Today, Bush was spotted with his daughter Josie in Encino, CA getting lunch shortly after news broke that his hosting job had been suspended.

The #Television personality issued a statement on Friday saying he was embarrassed, but it wasn't enough to keep him from being suspended.

Bush, who was on an Access Hollywood bus with Trump, could be heard talking about a woman who appears to be actress Arianne Zucker. I know this will have to be addressed by the producers and NBC.

TRUMP: Grab them by the p--y.

Bush's cousin Jeb was derided as "low energy" by Trump before dropping out of the primary race.

The thing about the entire situation is that Billy Bush claimed that he was young and foolish at the time of the recording, despite having been in his thirties at the time.
