In an incredibly surprising end to the 2016 election, Donald Trump has clinched a victory, and to be honest we’re surprised Twitter hasn’t crashed a la the Canadian Immigration Website. This means, of course, that we’re back to talking about Billy Bush, one of the people who nearly helped ruined Trump’s campaign. Many people were quick to note that it’s interesting that a conversation from 2005 during which Trump told Bush that because he’s famous, he can grab women “by the pussy” without consequence meant the end of Bush’s career at NBC, and Trump is now the President-Elect of the United States.
Just so we’re clear. Billy Bush unemployed. Donald Trump POTUS. #ElectionNight

Billy Bush was fired from the Today Show for even being in the same room with the guy who just became president.

Maybe the real estate tycoon turned reality tv star turned unlikely 45th President will hire him. Twitter users have some ideas:
