Did you really think that former Access Hollywood anchor Billy Bush was going to lose his job for being a laughing co-signer of Donald Trump’s “grab ’em by the pussy” comments and let the now-president get away with trying to act like he didn’t say it?
Of course not.
Ol’ Billy is out here snitching like the wig-wearing woman in every black neighborhood who still believes that a house dress can be worn to the grocery store.
On Sunday the New York Times ran an op-ed written by the disgraced talk show host, and he didn’t pull any punches.
Here’s how the Ol’ Billy started his Times piece:
He said it. “Grab ’em by the pussy.”
Of course he said it. And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator. 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 standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real.
We now know better.
Trump said that shit, and he knows he said it. He made a career prepresidency of speaking like a sexual predator. Since taking office, we’ve all been subjected to Trump’s re-creation of historical facts.
When the news of Trump’s “grab ’em” comments first broke in October 2016, including that salacious and predatory audio of Trump, the then-presidential candidate fell on his sword and issued a video apology.
“I said it. I was wrong. And I apologize,” he said. He would later claim that the language was just “locker-room talk.” Now that Trump’s in the Oval Office, he’s been backtracking on the comments, claiming that he doesn’t believe it was him on the audio.
Bush, who lost his job with Today because of his role, and his laughter, regarding Trump’s comments, apparently isn’t going to let the president get away with acting like it didn’t happen.
Nah, son. You said that sick shit, and it still didn’t stop 53 percent of white women from voting for you and then wearing pink pussy hats to protest for women’s rights.
