“He said it. ‘Grab ‘em by the pussy.’ Of course, he said it. And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator,” Bush writes.

As far as Bush is concerned, he apologized after the Access Hollywood tape was leaked. At that time Trump dismissed his remark by saying it merely locker room banter. But what happened next was very much expected Bush was first suspended and then was fired from NBC’s Today.

About Trump’s new claims, Bush said “This has hit a raw nerve in me. I can only imagine how it has reopened the wounds of the women who came forward with their stories about him and did not receive enough attention. This country is currently trying to reconcile itself to years of power abuse and sexual misconduct. Its leader is wantonly poking the bear”

In his recent op-ed, Bush mentioned that he totally believes that various sexual assault allegations against our very own president are true. He also said that owing to such allegations he always found Trump’s Presidential candidacy totally absurd. He says it takes a lot of courage to come forward knowing that such an influential person will clearly dismiss the allegations. But Bush has massive respect for such women, he writes,” You have my respect and admiration. You are culture warriors at the forefront of necessary change.Today is about reckoning and reawakening, and I hope it reaches all the guys on the bus,” he concludes, adding, “I know that I don’t need the accouterments of fame to know God and be happy. After everything over the last year, I think I’m a better man and father to my three teenage daughters — far from perfect, but better.”

Bush mentioned something similar earlier this year. “Looking back upon what was said on that bus, I wish I had changed the topic. [Trump] liked TV and competition. I could’ve said, ‘Can you believe the ratings on whatever?’ But I didn’t have the strength of character to do it,” Bush toldThe Hollywood Reporterin May upon firstbreaking his silenceon the scandal.

He also said he’s working to become a “better, fuller man.” “I am not grateful for the moment,” Bush said, “but I’m grateful for what I’ve gotten out of it. I’m grateful that it hit me all the way to my core.
