Bush recently wrote an op-ed in the New York Times following reports that Trump now allegedly denies that the voice on Access Hollywood tape is his, even though he previously publicly admitted that the voice on the tape was indeed his own.
While Trump has yet to respond to or tweet about Bush's op-ed, the reiteration of Trump's guilt isn't happening in a vacuum as Bush notes that there were actually "seven other guys present on the bus". "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".
As the nation comes to terms with a long, problematic history of sexual harassment and assault, Bush shifting the conversation back to Trump will hopefully - finally - deliver justice to the women harmed by Trump.
Bush was canned as a host of NBC's flagship morning show "Today" after the "Access Hollywood" tape was leaked to the media in October. "And so it was like a gut punch", a noticeably cringing Bush said afterward. "That upset me", Bush said. Stop playing around with people's lives.

Bush didn't address the allegations against Lauer, who was sacked November 29 for "inappropriate sexual behavior" at work and has been accused by as many as six female staffers. "He's got the hand up and I'm going into my little cabin to do the work".
DeMarcus Cousins and Kevin Durant ejected after on-court altercation
With just a minute left in regulation of this matchup, Durant and Cousins decided it was time for some extracurricular activity. This is the second time in as many games that the Warriors have had a player ejected for one reason or another.
"He stuck his finger in this door hinge".
"It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said, adding wryly - "He's a dumb, dumb person".
Bush was there, and he's getting a shot at redemption with his forthright acknowledgement that, yes, Trump was part of the conversation. "And I sort of equated what he was saying to some kind of, you know, crass standup act, like an Andrew Dice Clay performance", Bush said.
"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".
Amid the controversy a year ago, Bush said that his former colleague Matt Lauer stood by him. "He told me that he went privately to the bosses", he recalled. "We have to find our way to have the dialogue", he said. "And I said I appreciated it and I accepted it and thanked him". "We have to continue it all the way through and I hope we do that".
