  • Anthony Bourdain “Jokes” About Poisoning President Trump

    09/16/2017 7:28:11 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 58 replies ^ | September 16, 2017 | Humberto Fontova
    "Anthony Bourdain, the host of “Parts Unknown” on liberal CNN, said last week that he would poison Donald Trump if the celebrity chef was asked to cater a peace summit between the President and Kim Jong Un. “Hemlock,” Bourdain simply replied when asked by TMZ what he would serve Trump and the North Korean dictator.” OK, so Bourdain was joking. Har--Har! But here’s Bourdain from an interview right after Trump’s election: “I will never eat in his (Donald Trump’s) restaurant. I have utter contempt for him, utter and complete contempt… I’m not going. I’m not going.” (Anthony Bourdain, Eater.) Gosh?...
  • Anthony Bourdain I'd Poison Trump & Kim Jong-un ... If They Asked Me to Cater (CNN Reporter)

    Anthony Bourdain would dish poison if Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un made reservations for 2. We got Bourdain Thursday at LAX and our intrepid photog wondered -- what would the "Parts Unknown" host serve if asked to cater a peace talk meeting between the U.S. Prez and North Korea's dictator? Check it out ... pretty clear where Bourdain stands with what he'd serve. HINT -- it's vegetarian, but also deadly. Also, doesn't sound like he's got a soft spot for Kim Jong-un, who he calls a "chubby, evil little f***."

    The Most Hated Celebrity Chefs Jess Bolluyt The Cheat Sheet August 6, 2017 Celebrity chefs are everywhere. They host reality TV shows, judge cooking competitions, publish cookbooks, and open their own restaurants. Along the way, many of them ruffle a few feathers. Many celebrity chefs are genuinely talented. But some have polarizing personalities. Some have boring shows and lackluster recipes. And others are, plain and simple, badly overrated.

    "There are a hell of a lot of nice people out there" in "gun-country, God-fearing America" who "are doing what everyone else in this world is trying to do: the best they can to get by, and take care of themselves and the people they love." At long last a left-winger capable of honest self-reflection emerges in the wake of Donald Trump’s election victory. In an interview with Reason magazine, celebrity chef, Obama idolator, and Trump hater Anthony Bourdain blamed the rise of the president-elect on people like himself.

    Television and culinary personality Anthony Bourdain says in a new interview that fellow "privileged Eastern liberals" are the reason that Donald Trump was elected. "The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we’re seeing now," Bourdain told Reason. Bourdain attributed the large divide during this political season and Trump's win last month on a division between "Eastern liberals" and red-state Americans. “I’ve spent a lot of time in...

    Watching my favorite NY, alcoholic, heroin addict, liberal on CNN, he is out in New Mexico shooting with some locals. He actually said he likes the way a gun feels in his hands. He talked about how people in that part of the country don't freak out when they see somebody with a gun, because everybody has one. He admitted he felt safe around these guys and all of their guns. Sometimes I amazed at what I see on CNN.

    Remember the weighty advice Barry had for presumptive Republican presidential candidates a few weeks back? “…the presidency “is not entertainment — this is not a reality show.” Boy, we wish that were so. However, during his recent FEAT (Far East Apology Tour) Barry Obama appeared with Anthony Bourdain for a taping of his show - Parts Unknown, a CNN foodie travelogue. The foodie and the druggie shared a lunch of bún chả and beer; Tony praised Barry’s chopstick skills and picked up the tab. In case you’re not familiar with Tony, he’s the former chain smoking, coke sniffing, heroin addicted...

Opinions on both sides of the debate are fierce and passionate, and nearly everyone has feelings of some kind regarding the geo-political situation.

    One of the more interesting shows on television is Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown on CNN. Sunday was the season finale, where host Bourdain traveled to Detroit to explore the food and culture. After the episode — “The Last Bite” — Bourdain gathered with friends in a Las Vegas bar to discuss the season, which included a segment filmed in New Mexico that featured “gun culture.” CNN host Don Lemon joined Bourdain, along with Roy Choi (author of L.A. Son) and actor Wendell Pierce. Bourdain, an avowed “New York lefty,” admitted that he likes guns and expressed his respect for American...

  • Next to Anthony Bourdain, Paula Deen’s a Saint

    Paula Deen occasionally used the N-word, we’ve recently learned. For this she was tarred and feathered, drawn and quartered, and fed to the ‘gators. Anthony Bourdain, on the other hand, headlined a propaganda junket to help secure the financial lifeline for the Stalinist regime that jailed and tortured the longest suffering black political prisoners in modern history. But Bourdain sniffs that: “She (Paula Deen) revels in unholy connections with evil corporations.” Going further, he denounces Paula Deen’s professional endeavors as “in excruciatingly bad taste.” Further still, Bourdain finds Paula Deen, “unconscionable, cynical, and greedy.” You’ve probably noticed whose side the...

    World-renowned chef, author and Emmy winning television personality Anthony Bourdain visits Libya in the next episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," airing Sunday, May 19, at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Twitter and Facebook (CNN) -- Following Libya's revolution, oil production has been restored and the country has slipped from the front pages. Once more, Libya has become North African rather than southern Mediterranean, and news dispatches surface only when Western government's worst fears appear close to being realized. As most Libyans admit that after four-plus decades of Moammar Gadhafi, it will take time to build a mature...
  • Christmas Cartoon Featuring Santa‘s Demonic ’Helper’ Yanked From Travel Channel

    The Christmas season is filled with television specials that remind us of our childhood. From “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer“ to ”The Grinch,” holiday favorites offer a lesson for viewers, while enabling them to celebrate and experience the Christmas spirit. But when a new, animated holiday cartoon called “A Krampus Carol” was produced for the Travel Channel, it was apparently a bit too creepy and disturbing to be aired. So, executives decided to pull the plug. Anthony Bourdain, a chef and television personality who hosts the Travel Channel’s “No Reservations” show, apparently wrote the short cartoon. He took the Austrian legend...

    Here’s some great footage from that panel discussion between Alice Waters, Anthony Bourdain, and Duff Goldman. Waters sets Bourdain up for the kill when she says, “You can have the hot dog on the train, but you better ask them where you got the hot dog. I want to know that it’s a grass-fed beef hot dog. That’s what’s important. Where did the bun come from? Where did the flour come from?” And then Bourdain moves in: “Is it a good hot dog? That’s all I want to know … I don’t think the personal health and purity of my...

    ...Nevertheless, China has been portrayed as a nation blind to hygiene and blissfully unconcerned about recent reports of food contamination. That's troubling, because it reinforces the notion that befouled food is the consequence of a foul culture. Chef and gustatory adventurer Anthony Bourdain may have said it best in a 2006 Salon interview in which he noted that there's "something kind of racist" about culinary xenophobia: "Fear of dirt is often indistinguishable from the fear of unnamed dirty people." And this, in turn, spells danger. What one might call "food libel" has long been an aspect of a larger fear...
