Anthony Bourdain is a 60-year-old celebrity chef. He hosts a show called, “Parts Unknown” on the Travel Channel. He also believes his opinion is incredibly important. The celebrity chef has said that he won’t dine with Donald Trump any time this century.
So when the “Parts Unknown” host was asked if he’d consider breaking bread with Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, Bourdain did not hold back. “Absolutely f***ing not,” Bourdain told TheWrap.
“I’ve been a New Yorker most of my life, [and] for better or worse Mr. Trump is a New Yorker,” Bourdain continued. “We know him well here. We’ve watched how he does business and we’ve watched him say things and then we’ve seen whether or not he did those things, we have seen how he treats the people he does business with. I would give the same answer that I would have given 10 years ago, when he was just as loathsome.”
Earlier this year, Bourdain said he would like to grab a bite with Trump, just to ridicule him the entire time. “I’d like to see him struggle with chopsticks and eat a well done f―-ing steak,” Bourdain told the New York Daily News.
For what it’s worth, Bourdain, who famously dined with President Barack Obama in Vietnam for last week’s season premiere, didn’t seem particularly eager to grab a bite with Hillary Clinton, either (yet had no harsh words for her).
“Honestly, that’s not the business I’m in,” Bourdain told TheWrap. “I mean [Obama] kind of fell in our lap… it’s something I’m really grateful I did this time around but it was an extraordinary occurrence.”
Hey Bourdain, did you ever think that maybe Trump doesn’t want to dine with you? What a pompous jerk.
