Anthony Bourdain loved Barack Obama. He also voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. It appears his feelings about the Clintons, however, changed after Harvey Weinstein became the poster-boy for the #MeToo movement.
The Hollywood take-down of mega-producer Harvey Weinstein shined a bright light on the number of powerful men in Hollywood and in politics who sexually abused multiple women.
The CNN celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain, who took his own life only a month ago, was personally affected by the #MeToo scandal after his girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento came forward to accuse Hollywood kingpin and massive Democrat Party donor, Harvey Weinstein of raping her.
As everyone knows by now, the Clintons aren’t going to let someone else’s #MeToo movement get in their way…
In an interview, published more than a month after his death, Anthony Bourdain called former President Bill Clinton a “gropey, grabby disgusting” person and slammed the Clintons for how they handled the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
The celebrity chef and “Parts Unknown” host, who hanged himself in a French hotel in June, sat down with journalist Maria Bustillos from the magazine Popula (also referenced in The Daily Wire) before his death. The sit-down was published on Sunday.
Bourdain, one of the most outspoken supporters of the #MeToo movement, told the magazine it was shameful how the Clintons handled the scandal involving Lewinsky.
“Bill Clinton, look, the bimbo eruptions—it was f—ing monstrous. That would not have flown today,” Bourdain said about the scandal. “[Bill Clinton is] a piece of s—. Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting, and the way that he — and she [Hillary] — destroyed these women and the way that everyone went along, and, and are blind to this!”
The 61-year-old went on to say it was “unforgivable” the way the couple had shut down the accusers.
“He is a very charming man, I met him, he’s f**king magnetic. As is Hillary. When you’re in the room, you think wow, she’s really warm and nice and funny. But the way they efficiently dismantled, destroyed, and shamelessly discredited these women for speaking their truth.”
When asked if Clinton should have been kicked out of the office, Bourdain said no.
“I would look at this way. I would never under any circumstances vote for Bill Clinton today,” Bourdain told the magazine. “But I think impeaching the guy over Lewinsky was ridiculous. Particularly given today.”
He added, “It was the shaming, discrediting, undermining the women that made both of them unsuitable for any future endeavors. I don’t think they should’ve pulled him from office.” –Fox News
