Below is the entire exchange between Bourdain and TMZ.
Breitbart News reports:
The former Food Network personality and current host of CNN’s Parts Unknown was caught outside LAX airport by a photographer for celebrity gossip website TMZ. Bourdain was asked whether or not he would go to North Korea to do a food show.
Bourdain said that everyone in North Korea is starving, so there is no reason to go there. He also called the diminutive dictator of the oppressed nation a series of obscene names, saying Kim Jong-un is a “chubby, evil little f***.”
But then the TMZ stringer asked what Bourdain would serve if he was asked to cater a dinner for President Trump.
Bourdain answered simply, “Hemlock,” appearing to admit he would poison the president if given the chance.
If you aren’t familiar with Hemlock, it is one of the most dangerous plants on earth.
According to MNN:
This is one of the most famous poisonous plants in history — it’s the flora responsible for killing Socrates. All parts of the plant contain the relatively simple alkaloid coniine which causes stomach pains, vomiting and progressive paralysis of the central nervous system.
Hemlock is also known by several common names, including devil’s porridge, beaver poison or poison parsley.
Bourdain is an outspoken critic of President Trump, having once said he wouldn’t have dinner with the leader of the free world because he’s a narcissist.
Independent UK reports:
World famous chef Anthony Bourdain has said he will not sit down to dinner with Donald Trump because the US President “only talks about himself and he’s only interested in himself”.
“I can’t see the point, he only talks about himself and he’s only interested in himself,” he said “I can’t see that as being scintillating dinner conversation. Plus he eats his steak well done. I think that really settles it.”
The irony should not be lost here, as it’s likely the President probably wouldn’t have dinner with Bourdain anyway. Bourdain has a history with drugs — President Trump has never consumed alcohol or drugs. Sorry, Tony!
