Billy Bush celebrated his return to TV as host of “Extra Extra” with a party at Hudson Yards on Wednesday.
Bush — whose career was on hold after his role in the infamous Donald Trump “Grab ’em by the p - - sy” tape — did not give any interviews.
But he stated in a celebratory toast: “I really appreciate you being here, and I know you are journalists, so you can’t root for anyone, or anything like that, because you are very neutral and independent and I get it. I do feel the support of peers tonight, and I am very grateful for that, so thank you. Thank you. I have wonderful friends that are here tonight.”
Guests cheered him on. One figured, “Everyone loves a good comeback story.”
When the 2005 Trump sound bite from Bush’s time at “Access Hollywood” came to light in October 2016, it led to the host’s firing from NBC’s “Today.”
