Billy Bush visited The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he talked about the infamous Access Hollywood audio tape with Donald Trump. On the tape, Bush can be heard laughing as Trump talks about sexually assaulting women.
Not long after the tape from September of 2005 resurfaced, Bush was fired by NBC. And now he upset that the story is back in the headlines.
Bush started his interview with Colbert with a direct message to Trump, saying, “I would also like to say that’s not me on the bus. You don’t get to say that because I was there, and for the last 14 months of my life I have been dealing with it. You dealt with it for 14 minutes and went on to be the president.”
A recent New York Times article cited Trump as having recently denied the recordings. Trump allegedly told a senator, “We don’t think that was my voice.”

This comes nearly 14 months after Trump tweeted a video message saying, “I said it. I was wrong. And I apologize.”
Later in the interview, Bush pointed out that the denial was particularly shameful to the many women who have publicly accused Trump of sexual assault, as it discredits the media and victims.
Bush went on to discuss his op-ed piece in the NYT. He told Colbert, “I said, you’re reopening wounds on them too. Enough is enough. Stop playing around with people’s lives. That upset me.”
The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
Jimmy Fallon made a Christmas carol that Trump may not find so funny:
