Billy Bush bragged about ‘grab them by the pussy’ tape to NBC staffers

Billy Bush, the Lefou to Donald Trump’s Gaston, reportedly was boasting about the now-infamous tape of Donald Trump and him discussing sexual assault in a casual, disgusting manner.

Sources told Page Six that Bush bragged about the existence of the tape to fellow NBC staff members while in Rio for the 2016 Olympics. (Rio, you may remember, is where Bush botched an interview with America’s dumbest criminal, Ryan Lochte.) Bush reportedly was at a party in August and mentioned that he had a “tape of Trump being a real dog.”

This tantalizing tease prompted “Access Hollywood” to track the video down, which ended up being really bad news for Trump — and Bush, since he didn’t tell any of his bosses of NBC higher-ups about it. “Billy was bragging about the tape to other NBC staff while in Rio,” a source told Page Six.

“If he knew about the tape, and remembered the full extent of such an explosive conversation with a presidential candidate and didn’t disclose that to NBC News, that is a very, very serious problem,” they continued, adding that he might’ve violated a morality clause when he joined the “Today” show.

Another source suggested that Bush might’ve overlooked how damning his recorded comments were because he was focused more on the newsworthiness of The Donald’s “locker room talk.”

Bush, who is being replaced on “Today” for an indefinite amount of time by Carson Daly, might also have workplace harassment allegations coming his way because of the comments he made about his former “Access Hollywood” co-host Nancy O’Dell.

The bottom line is that it’s amazing that somehow Jeb! isn’t having the worst 2016 out of all the Bushes.
