NBC News fires Billy Bush over lewd Donald Trump tape airs

People on Twitter don't like the look of that Billy Bush, always running around with his celebrity friends and causing trouble — and now, with Melania Trump's help, he's being blamed for everything. 
Why, just around a decade ago, he convinced an impressionable Donald Trump to admit to terrible acts of sexual misconduct. At least, that's how Melania  portrayed the situation to CNN's Anderson Cooper on Monday.

Speaking about the infamous leaked Access Hollywood footage from 2005, Melania said that her husband (then 59 years old) and Bush (then 33) were only engaged in "boy talk, and he was led on — like, egged on — from the host to say dirty and bad stuff."
Oh, that Bush boy is incorrigible! Apparently, Trump isn't the only person who was convinced by Bush to do naughty things, as evidenced by the #BillyBushMadeMeDoIt and #BillyBushMadeMe hashtags trending on Twitter.

Someone has to stop this real-life Dennis the Menace from corrupting our country's most vulnerable billionaires. Or, you know, people could take responsibility for their own words and actions. 

NBC News has fired "Today" show host Billy Bush, who was caught on tape in a vulgar conversation about women with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump before an "Access Hollywood" appearance. Bush was suspended at the morning show two days after contents of the 2005 tape were reported on Oct. 7. NBC and Bush's representatives had been negotiating terms of his exit before Monday's announcement.

I look forward to what lies ahead.

Billy Bush

Bush, who had been at "Today" for two months, is the nephew of Republican former President George H.W. Bush. NBC made the announcement of his firing in a note from "Today" show top executive Noah Oppenheim to his staff. Oppenheim called Bush, who spent 15 years at Access Hollywood, "a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family."
