As Twitchy told you, Melania Trump blames former “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush for “egging on” her husband’s gross boasts about sexually assaulting women. But whether or not it’s Bush’s fault that Trump’s a garbage person, it seems NBC’s done taking chances:

More from Deadline Hollywood:

Billy Bush will be leaving the Today Show’s 9 AM hour, effective today,” NBC NewsNoah Oppenheim said in a note to staff.

In the carefully worded statement, Oppenheim called Bush “a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family” adding that they wish him success as he goes forward.”

In a separate statement, Bush said he was “deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues” adding that he is looking “forward to what lies ahead.”

Still no statement from NBC apologizing for letting sexist scumbag Trump host multiple seasons of “The Apprentice,” but we’re sure they’ll get around to it eventually.
