On Monday, he voiced his concerns about Trump's denial of the tape on air, just hours after he penned a New York Times op-ed regarding the situation.

That was the tape that caused an uproar - but obviously did not derail - Trump's 2016 presidential campaign when the candidate was heard boasting to Bush that as a celebrity, he can "do anything" with women, including "grab them by the pussy". "And I said, 'OK, you're re-opening wounds on them too.' Enough's enough".

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.

"The first time I ever heard it was three days before it leaked". In regards to how he reacted when the tape first resurfaced, the Today alum said watching it was like a "gut punch" and originally equated Donald's words to a "crass stand-up act". The then-Celebrity Apprentice host said he is "automatically attracted to beautiful women" and starts kissing them. "Enough's enough. Stop playing around with people's lives".

On the Late Show, Bush told Colbert that the number of women accusing Trump and their stories made a strong impression on him. "It was the beginning of me saying, 'All right, get up, stop being sorry for yourself, stop worrying about these things". "It's a gut-punch now, it will always be".

The exchange of words happened with 1:14 left in the fourth quarter, and the best part is that it's an eight-point game. For anyone keeping count, this is the second time in three days that Durant has been ejected.

Bush went on to tell Colbert that he feels like he "sacrificed" a little bit of his soul by participating in the conversation and took time to do some self-introspection following the tape's release. Unfortunately, Lauer's opinion doesn't mean much these days as he's in the middle of a sexual misconduct scandal. So a major part of Bush's job was to bond with Trump. "And he stuck - I'm going to say his finger - in this door hinge by denying this".

"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".

"It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said, adding wryly - "He's a dumb, dumb person".

Amid the controversy previous year, Bush said that his former colleague Matt Lauer stood by him. "I said, 'I appreciated it, ' and accepted it and thanked him".

"Women must be believed, and we kind of have to find our way to have the dialogue", Bush explained. "But my boss, said publicly months later, 'I think we may have moved a little quickly". "We have to continue it all the way through and I hope we do that".
