Billy Bush officially sacked from ‘Today show’

    Billy Bush has officially been sacked from the ‘Today Show’ following his participation in a leaked 2005 lewd video where presidential candidate, Donald Trump boasted of using his celebrity status to get women, with comments such as  “grab them by the p—y” .

    “Billy Bush will be leaving the ‘Today’ show’s 9 a.m. hour, effective today. While he was a new member of the ‘Today’ team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family. We wish him success as he goes forward.” Noah Oppenheim, NBC News senior vice president, said in a memo to staff on Monday
