Billy Bush is reflecting on the backlash two years after surfacing of the controversial “Access Hollywood” tape, in which then-reality star Donald Trump brags about groping and kissing women without their consent.

Bush took to Instagram on Sunday to look back on the two years since the video surfaced just one month before the 2016 presidential election.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Two years ago today, my life went from order to chaos in a dramatic instant,” Bush wrote. “I accounted for my small part, while the President and my employer walked away and still haven’t accounted for their actions. These past couple years have been character building to say the least – anxiety attacks, fits of rage, feelings of betrayal and abandonment – and I have concluded that I am NOT extraordinary. Terrible things can happen at any moment to ANYONE.”

The former “Today” show co-host said the positive outcome of the scandal was that he developed more “empathy, humility and resilience” and learned how to “laugh even in the darkest hour.”

Two years ago today, my life went from order to chaos in a dramatic instant. I accounted for my small part, while the President and my employer walked away and still haven’t accounted for their actions. These past couple years have been character building to say the least – anxiety attacks, fits of rage, feelings of betrayal and abandonment – and I have concluded that I am NOT extraordinary. Terrible things can happen at any moment to ANYONE. On the positive side, I feel grateful to know adversity as intimately as I do, and to have developed more empathy, humility and resilience. And to know you can laugh even in the darkest hour is a blessing. Especially at yourself. I am grateful to God and my family for true love and support, and to all of you for your kindness. I have an idea. Let’s stop tolerating this escalating war on flaws and the obliteration of people for things we all do. It’s fueled by an activist media and (anti) social media and it’s barbaric. We are humans and thus fallible. Let’s take better care of each other. Photo: Oct 7, 2016 at Today Show before chaos struck. @hodakotb and producers dressed me in man spanx. I remember us all hysterically laughing. I still wear them. Shhh

    Back up the trolly Billy Bush, you need to watch the video again. He said “ When you are rich and famous they will let you grab them by the Pussy”. You just lied and said “ Brags about groping and kissing Women with out their consent”, Wake up , you just lied. I think you leaked the tape for your Family. I Feel so sorry for you only getting a Multi Million dollar Settlement after you were let go. Best Acting Job by any Bush Ever! Crawl back to Grampa’s compound and live under a rock, There are a lot of them there you can pick from. That way you can continue to refleck on your new lie you just leaked.

      You are so right, they changed what he said to suit their purpose!
      The President didn’t lie, plenty of women out there will let a rich guy do whatever they want to. If they didn’t want to be kissed or touched then they should have pushed him away!
      Plenty of men try to kiss women without consent, you can stop it if you want to! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about rape, that’s a whole different catagory!

    Thought you’d grab a little of the spotlight from our President to do what, promote a book or product or just plane need to be associated with President Trump’s legacy.
    Don’t worry Mr. Bushwacker,your footprint will be but a small footnote forgotten in the overshadowing greatness he has and will accomplish during his termS.

    The women Trump spoke of in that tape were NOT groped against their wishes as others before me have stated. Unfortunately, there are plenty of women out there who willingly encourage advances from a rich, powerful man. They are know as “gold diggers “. Or, “Star [email protected]&kers”. They are the kind of women who make can make me ashamed of my gender! Billy Boy Bush’s ploy to sink the president failed miserably. His attempt makes him just as much of a slut as those gold digging women
