Billy Bush Makes Late Night Debut on 'Late Show With Stephen Colbert'

In his first interview since the Access Hollywood tapes, Billy Bush finally gets candid. For almost 13 minutes, Bush spoke with Stephen Colbert about the entire ordeal. "That upset me", Bush said. "Like I said ... you can't say that ... that is your voice ..."

Amid the controversy previous year, Bush said that his former colleague Matt Lauer stood by him. He called out the "irony" of being fired from his job over the incident, while Trump went on become president of the United States.

Bush was sacked from NBC in 2016 after being heard laughing on the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape featuring Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpDems resurface Flynn's "lock her up" comments after Mueller charges Congress must stop private prisons from receiving tax breaks Evangelicals were with Trump in 2016, and will be in 2020 MORE.

But Bush did discuss the senior anchor's role in his own firing from NBC News, after the former Access Hollywood host was caught in a 2005 recording egging on Donald Trump as the future president boasted about sexual assault. However, Bush wanted the President to be held accountable for his past actions as countless women have stepped forward to talk about how the Commander-in-Chief harassed them.

"As I read these, I said, 'Twenty women don't get together and say, 'Hey, you know what would be really fun?" And I said, 'Okay, you're reopening wounds on them too. Enough is enough. Stop playing around with people's lives.

"Everybody had to kiss the ring of Donald because he was making the big money for NBC at the time", Bush told Colbert, noting he and crew members thought Trump was doing an act of some sort.

KK Aggarwal, the head of the IMA, said the episode was a tragic mistake. "We don't trust the doctors there", Malik said. This even as the inquiry by an expert group that includes experts from Indian Medical Association is still in process.

"It was a gut punch, and it is a gut punch now, and it will always be", Bush said. While Colbert commented that the video camera was not exactly on the President, Bush thought President Trump's commentary was an act. "If I had thought there was a man detailing a sexual assault strategy to me, I would have contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and not just brought it to the attention of my producers". In an op-ed piece in The New York Times, Bush wrote, "Of course he said it".

"If I had thought there was a man detailing a sexual assault strategy to me, I would've called the Federal Bureau of Investigation, not just reported it to my executive producer. The very day he was swearing in as the 45th president of the United States, I was checking in to this soul-searching retreat in St. Helena, Calif., nine days off the grid", Bush said. He told me that he went privately to the bosses ... "Do you wish he would have protected you?" "But my boss, said publicly months later, 'I think we may have moved a little quickly".

"He's got the hand up; I'm going into my little cabin to do the work", said Bush.

Man, oh man. Regardless, the main thing Billy's learned from this whole experience is that "women must be believed". "I'm anxious that the dialogue isn't going to be around because we move onto the next thing". "I hope it reaches all the guys on the bus".

"It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said, adding wryly -"He's a dumb, dumb person".
