The Today show is a little less smug this morning, because annoying ventriloquist’s dummy Billy Bush isn’t on and won’t be on indefinitely. Because of that recording from 2005 of Billy Bush laughing as Donald Trump bragged about grabbing pussy without permission, NBC announced yesterday that they have suspended him from Today as they investigate. Please, that’s just PR talk for: “We’ve sent Billy Bush on a paid vacation until that tape of Trump saying the N-word comes out and that pussy grabbing disaster is nothing but a distant memory.”
At the beginning of Today this morning, Savannah Guthrie announced that the NBC peacock has grabbed the pussy named Billy Bush and tossed him out the exit door for now.

Billy Bush being put in the time out corner was also brought up by Tamron Hall and Al Roker at the beginning of the 9 o’clock hour. Al Roker did his best not to shart out a poop noodle of excitement over his one-time on-air rival getting in trouble. But People says that if Billy Bush ends up getting canned, Al Roker may shart out several poop noodles of excitement. A source says that Billy doesn’t really fit in. Half of the Today cast hates him and the other half looks at him and says, “Who brought their insufferable son to work today?” They forget he exists.
“Ever since [Ryan] Lochte, a lot of people have thought that he was a liability anyway. Tamron [Hall] doesn’t like him and they have always been uncomfortable around each other. Al [Roker] doesn’t speak to him, like at all. There is no love lost there. Matt [Lauer] is okay with him, not friends, but okay. He doesn’t have much of a relationship with Savannah [Guthrie]. So it won’t be a loss to any of them personally if he doesn’t come back. The network and producers are going to have to decide if he’s such a liability that they have to take stronger action. Does anyone tune in to Today to watch Billy? Probably not really. So if he leaves, it’s not a big deal.
The feeling is, ‘Is he so compromised that he can’t be a neutral journalist? Can people see him as being a professional?’ It really seems like it’s time for him to go. We’re all waiting to see what happens.””
And Matt Lauer probably was okay with Billy Bush but not anymore. How can Matt look at Billy in his beady eyes now? Any respect Matt had for Billy has been lost. Because Matt believes that any serious journalist should know to cover up his mic with both hands when talking about tits and pussy! That’s the first lesson that every television journalist learns. What a rookie move.
