Disgraced NBC anchor, Billy Bush was in the Capitol Rotunda on Tuesday afternoon. He came to pay tribute to his uncle, the late President George H.W. Bush with the rest of the family.


The former "Access Hollywood" presenter, Billy Bush, joined his family in Washington to mourn his uncle President George H.W. Bush.

He wore white sneakers and no tie. Read more on our Twitter account, @amomama_usa.

He stood alongside the other members of the extended Bush family. The gathered around the former president's flag-draped coffin.


The family observed a moment of silence as members of the public watched them. Billy choked back tears as he stood under the Capitol Dome.

As the family departed, he quickly wiped away tears. He then followed the family out of the room.

Billy Bush is the nephew of the late president. His father, Jonathan was the brother of George H.W. Bush.


Billy found himself in trouble after a tape surfaced during the 2016 presidential campaign. The tape was of an interview he conducted with Donald Trump in 2005 when he hosted "Access Hollywood."

Trump spoke about how you can treat women when you are famous. He infamously said, "You can do anything… grab them by the [expletive]." Bush was heard laughing on the tape at Trump’s unsavory comments.



However, this time the public was not outraged for his past mistakes but rather over his strange outfit choices. One user called the outfit, "tacky and disrespectful."

Many agreed that sneakers and informal attire were not the right decision for the occasion. Some questioned if perhaps his bags were lost.



While others argued that it would be unlikely. However, some people noted that perhaps he simply "forgot his suit."

The Nation will pay its final dues to George H.W. Bush with a solemn cortege. It will begin in Washington D.C. before he is eventually buried in Texas.



The former President will be honored with another ceremony on his arrival at Joint Base Andrews before being taken to Washington. He will lie in state in the U.S. Capitol from December 3 to the afternoon of the 5th.
