I'll tell you why you shouldn't feel too bad for Bily Bush in a second.

Bush was officially let go from Today for his role in the 2005 Access Hollywood tape where Donald Trump made lewd comments about women. Bush's lawyer's defense was that Billy had to be agreeable with his guests on the show.

A memo to staff Monday said, "Billy Bush will be leaving the TODAY show's 9am hour, effective today. While he was a new member of the TODAY team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family. We wish him success as he goes forward."

Bush released his own statement saying, "I am deeply grateful for the conversations I've had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead."

Don't feel bad for Billy - Reports are saying he got a muti-million dollar settlement to get out of his contract.
