Billy Bush suspended from ‘Today' amid Donald Trump tape fallout

NEW YORK -- Billy Bush has been on the Today show for just two months, but now he's being benched by the NBC morning show.

The network has suspended Bush indefinitely for the things he was caught saying in a crude conversation with Donald Trump about treating women.

The head of the show says "there is simply no excuse" for what Bush says on the tape.

It may not end with just a suspension.

NBC says Bush is off the air "pending further review of the matter."

Like Trump, Bush has apologized for his comments.

Bush's posts on his Facebook page have been met with criticism. One woman posted: "You are sickening!" The comment got nearly 5,000 "likes."
