Hillary allies fume when uber-lib Anthony Bourdain calls BULL on her ‘shocked’ Weinstein reaction

Powered by Topple

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain slammed Hillary Clinton for her “shameful” interview in response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

The host of CNN’s “Parts Unknown” railed against Clinton’s interview telling CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Wednesday that she was “shocked” and “appalled” by the allegations against the Hollywood mogul.

“I was — I was just sick,” Clinton told Zakaria. “I was shocked. I was appalled. And, you know, like so many people who’ve come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past.”

Bourdain blasted the former Democratic presidential nominee on Twitter, calling her out to his more than six million followers.

Weinstein, who was accused by several actresses of decades of sexual harassment and sexual assault, contributed thousands of dollars to the Clinton Foundation over the years  and was a major donor to Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Actress Asia Argento, Bourdain’s girlfriend, accused Weinstein of raping her in a New Yorker expose published on Tuesday.

Bourdain also tweeted that, although he admired Clinton, he felt the interview was “a real disappointment.”

Interestingly, it seemed former President Obama was off the hook as the chef had nothing to say about his delay, like Clinton’s, in response to the bombshell report against Weinstein. Obama got to pal around with Bourdain when he appeared on his show “No Reservations” last year after slamming then-candidate Donald Trump for treating the office of president like a “reality show.”

After last month’s attempt at humor when he remarked that he would like to poison President Trump, Bourdain cautioned that it was “not about blame” and that he was not saying Clinton was responsible for Weinsttein’s actions.

He also added that the Weinstein scandal is very personal to him.

Of course, Clinton’s minions were not going to let Bourdain off the hook for his criticism.

Bourdain was skewered on social media for daring to utter a negative word about Clinton. But, as he admitted, it seemed only fair given the conservative backlash after his insults about Trump.

With a personal connection to the Weinstein story, Bourdain’s Twitter account continued to be filled with commentary.
