SUPPLIED US vice-president Mike Pence is said to have plotted to replace Donald Trump on the Republican presidential ticket

He joined the CBS late-night program for an interview after the tape came back into the news following a New York Times report that said Trump allegedly told a senator that the tape was fake - despite apologizing for its contents after it was released past year. "Like I said, you can't say that". "You don't get to say that, because I was there, and the last 14 months of my life I have been dealing with it".

Billy Bush says "Today" anchor Matt Lauer went to the mat for him with their bosses at NBC News following the leak of the "Access Hollywood" tape.

The former Today host further noted that, while he is angered by Trump's most recent actions, he also still holds himself accountable for his own actions (and lack of pushback) when he had the initial taped conversation with Trump back in 2005.

They switched topics, and Bush talked and talked - and admitted that he was trying to keep Colbert from playing the video.

It's been over a year since the tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault leaked, and the former television host was implicated in the backlash.

Bush said that it took some time after his departure before he began reading the accounts of the women who had publicly leveled allegations against Trump.

Trump's voice is heard on the Access Hollywood tape saying he tried unsucessfully to seduce a married woman: "I moved on her like a b***h, but I couldn't get there".

Bush's New York Times editorial is titled Yes, Donald Trump, You Said That. I am really sorry.

"You don't get to say that".

"It's really the dumbest thing he could have done", Colbert said, adding wryly -"He's a dumb, dumb person". "Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act".

Bush also brought up the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault. "Just kiss. I don't even wait".

Bush didn't have the best start to the Today show when he joined in August 2016, as he immediately sparked controversy by defending Ryan Lochte's fabricated robbery story at the Olympics on-air. "He told me that he went privately to the bosses", he recalled.

When it comes to the national conversation of victims reporting sexual abuse and harrasment, he said, "Women must be believed". "I'm anxious that the dialogue isn't going to be around, because we get on to the next thing, we get on to our phones, the next outrage comes".

"My [then] 15-year-old, Mary, called me from boarding school, and she was in tears: 'Dad, Dad, Dad, ' and I said, 'Everything is going to be fine, Mary. We have to continue it all the way through and I hope we do that".
