(Peter Kramer/NBC via AP) (Newser) – Donald Trump's hot mic scandal is now taking a toll on NBC's Billy Bush. The Today show has suspended the co-host in the wake of his role in the now infamous recording, reports CNN. Bush could be heard on the tape egging Trump on as the GOP nominee boasted in vulgar terms about his ways with women. "I know we've all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours," wrote Today show exec Noah Oppenheim to staffers, per US Weekly. "Let me be clear—there is simply no excuse for Billy's language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter." Bush himself had previously pronounced himself "ashamed" of his own comments.
