Billy Bush suspended from NBC after Donald Trump lewd tape
Today Show anchor Billy Bush has been suspended by NBC "pending further review" after he received criticism for a 2005 tape in which he had a lewd conversation with Donald Trump.
Bush, who was on an Access Hollywood bus with Trump, could be heard talking about a woman who appears to be actress Arianne Zucker.
Noah Oppenheim, the NBC executive in charge of Today, wrote this internal memo to the employees:
"I know we've all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours. Let me be clear — there is simply no excuse for Billy's language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter."
