Anthony Bourdain slammed Bill and Hillary Clinton and their longtime pal, accused serial rapist Harvey Weinstein, in one of his final interviews before his June 2018 suicide.
“[Bill Clinton is] a piece of s**t, entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting,” Bourdain told Popula. The celebrity chef blasted Bill and Hillary, saying they “destroyed these women” who came forward with allegations of sexual assault and rape.
Bourdain said he would like to have seen Weinstein “beaten to death in his cell,” and then recounted how he imagines Weinstein would die:
“My theory of how he goes is he’s brushing his teeth in a bathroom, he’s naked in his famous bathrobe, which is flapping open. He’s holding his cell phone in one hand because you never know who on the Weinstein board has betrayed him recently, and he’s brushing his teeth. He suddenly gets a massive f**king stroke – he stumbles backwards into the bathtub.”
As BizPac Review previously reported, Anthony Bourdain hanged himself in a French hotel in June 2018. His shocking suicide at age 61 roiled the entertainment, culinary, and broadcasting worlds due to his tremendous popularity as a celebrity-chef-turned-TV-star.
Bourdain, who shot to fame starring on the Travel Channel series “No Reservations,” was filming a segment for his CNN series “Parts Unknown” when he abruptly killed himself.
In the months preceding his death, Bourdain became an outspoken proponent of the #MeToo movement after his girlfriend, Italian actress Asia Argento, claimed Weinstein had forced her to have sex with him. Bourdain dated Argento from 2016 until a week before his suicide.
Argento raised eyebrows amid revelations that she had consensual sex with Weinstein some time after she claimed he forcibly performed oral sex on her.
Bourdain slammed Bill Clinton as a sexual predator and trashed Hillary for enabling his behavior with her attacks on his alleged victims. Bourdain admitted that Bill Clinton was very charismatic, and that Hillary can act like a nice person when you meet her.
“He is a very charming man,” Bourdain said. “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 [was unconscionable].”
Harvey Weinstein was a longtime friend and political donor to the Clintons. Bourdain, who voted for Hillary, said he was disappointed at how meekly Bill and Hillary reacted after the Weinstein rape accusations surfaced. “I was really disappointed,” he said.
As BizPac Review reported, Bourdain angered Trump supporters after saying that he’d poison President Trump if he were asked to cater a summit between him and Kim Jong Un.

Bourdain later backpedaled on his remarks, saying he was joking. He is survived by his estranged wife, Ottavia Busia, and their 11-year-old daughter Ariane.
