It's still hard to believe the whole 'grab 'em by the p*ssy' scandal ever happened - or more accurately, that it happened and Donald Trump was still elected President of the United States.

What's even harder still to believe is that Trump - despite having famously dismissed the comments on 'Access Hollywood' as 'locker room talk' - has begun suggesting that the tape is fake, or that it's not his voice on it, despite previously admitting to it.

Now - days after Access Hollywood confirmed that the tapes were real - former host Billy Bush (who lost his job at NBC after the scandal) has penned an op-ed in the New York Times (the paper that Trump famously hates) saying of course it happened.

"Of course he said it," he wrote. "And we laughed along, without a single doubt that this was hypothetical hot air from America’s highest-rated bloviator. Along with Donald Trump and me, there were seven other guys present on the bus at the time, and every single one of us assumed we were listening to a crass standup act. He was performing. Surely, we thought, none of this was real.

"We now know better."

He also referenced the women who had come forward to accuse Trump of inappropriate touching and forceful kissing, recalling her account. '"He was relentless,” she said. “I didn’t know how to handle it.” Her story makes the whole “better use some Tic Tacs” and “just start kissing them” routine real," wrote Bush. "I believe her."

Trump has yet to respond to the piece.
