Stephen Colbert makes Billy Bush listen to 'Access Hollywood' tape

Chase Stevens  FR171365 AP

The New York Times reported last week that Trump has told at least one us senator and other people that he didn't believe the voice on the tape was his - even though he directly confirmed the remarks and apologized for them a month before the presidential election past year.

Moments later, "Late Show" rebroadcast a portion of the "Access Hollywood" tape and got Bush's reaction nearly a year and half later to Mr. Trump's boasting of grabbing "women by the p****".

But after hearing and reading the accounts of the multiple women who've accused Trump of sexual assault, he knows it wasn't a routine. "A lot of people were not comfortable with the man who was close to winning the election and a lot of things happened quickly", Bush, 46, said. "Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass stand-up act. He told Colbert he was offended by Trump's denial on a personal level, and also on behalf of the women who have gone on the record to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct". "President Trump is now indulging in some revisionist history, reportedly telling allies, including at least one United States senator, that the voice on the tape is not his", Bush wrote, adding, "This has hit a raw nerve in me".

His Late Show audience, at least, didn't seem fully on board with Bush's apology tour, remaining largely somber during his appearance-even as Bush once more affirmed the truth of the tape, despite Trump recently suggesting the opposite.

"As I read these, 20 women don't get together and say, Hey, you know what would really be fun?" Stop playing around with people's lives. "I said, 'I appreciated it, ' and accepted it and thanked him". I think it was very hot, emotionally in the country. "That is your voice, I was there, you were there - that's your voice on the tape". "I hope that we do get there, because I've spent a lot of time thinking about it".

"The first time I ever heard it was three days before it leaked", Bush told Colbert.

"He's got the hand up; I'm going into my little cabin to do the work", said Bush. "We have to find our way to have the dialogue", he said. Back in October 2016, Bush was sacked from his position at the Today show as a result of the aforementioned tape, in which Bush laughed as Trump detailed the way in which he could supposedly force himself upon women.

"It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said, adding wryly - "He's a dumb, dumb person". He told me that he went privately to the bosses ...
