Billy Bush could be in a lot more trouble than Donald Trump over the now infamous video that was released by the Washington Post and here is why.
When the Washington Post released a video that depicted Billy Bush and Donald Trump having a lewd conversation about women, everyone in the media thought that Trump’s campaign was over.
Donald Trump stood on the debate stage Sunday night and stopped the bleeding and due to his performance, he might even get a nice bump in the polls after all is said and done.
Billy Bush, not so lucky.
The cousin to the 43rd president, and nephew to the 41st president did what Jeb could never do, and that is wound Donald Trump.
It was only a wound though, and it will heal. Billy on the other hand is now suspended from his job working on the “Today” show.
It is unclear if Billy will be asked to rejoin the show. NBC has officially “suspended him indefinitely pending further review”.
Billy has been with Access Hollywood show since 2001, and even worked the Olympics and events like the Academy Awards and Grammys.
Bush’s career is taking a really big hit right now. Not only did his audio end up on the front page of the news, but also he recorded a guest off camera and it got leaked.
Billy’s trust is now shattered in his industry, but Trump on the other hand, has moved on.
The Washington Post article will hurt from time to time, but it is just a wound that will heal and it won’t stop Trump from moving forward.
Now we just wait for Hillary’s October surprise before the next debate and see if she can survive as well as Trump or if her career ends up more like Billy Bush’s.
