“And it ends like it started.” Jimmy Kimmel enlisted Billy Bush’s help in picking up on that infamous Access Hollywood bus incident to say goodbye to Donald Trump.
Kimmel posted a clip of tonight Jimmy Kimmel Live! in which Bush invites Trump aboard the Access Hollywood bus to escape from DC and the White House. The fake news clip, captioned “And it ends the way it started,” begins with Trump waving to the press as he walks towards the bus and Bush of the Access Hollywood Across America circuit, as Bush waves to Trump on board. “Donald, hey look at you, big crow. Get in there, come on. Game over, ”exclaims Bush. “Very nice seats on both sides!” The last comment was clearly a nod to Trump’s infamous quote defending white nationalists who demonstrated in Charlottesville in 2017, proclaiming that the crowd included “very good people on both sides.”
Of course, no one can forget the 2005 audio and video release of then-candidate Trump and Bush on the Access Hollywood bus when Bush was co-host of the entertainment show. As the two spoke, Trump was overheard speaking rudely about women, saying among other things that when you’re famous enough you can grab a woman by her genitals. The tape, released just two months before the 2016 election, was seen at the time as the final nail in the coffin of Trump’s candidacy, but the scandal was immediately greeted with a counter scandal: the Wikileaks publication emails from John Podesta. The old one Celebrity apprentice the host won the electoral college, if not the popular vote.
