Anthony Bourdain slammed Hillary Clinton and called Bill Clinton 'gropey, grabby and disgusting' in last interview
Anthony Bourdain was not a big fan of Hillary or Bill Clinton and in his final interview he did not hold back in letting people know that.
Anthony, who had been vocal about his support towards the Me Too movement stated that he was ashamed of the way the Clintons had handled Monica's scandal. Bill and Monica, who was working as an intern at the White House, was involved in a romantic relationship between 1995 and 1997 and the relationship came to light only in 1998. The subject soon became a topic of a political sex scandal.
Anthony Bourdain opened up about his thoughts on Hillary and Bill Clinton about Monica Lewinsky scandal in his interview with Popula which the chef did a month before he committed suicide. In the interview, Anthony reflected his thoughts on the subject.
“Bill Clinton, look, the bimbo eruptions—it was f---ing monstrous. That would not have flown today,” he said of 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!” Anthony added that the couple was "unforgivable" for how they chose to handle the situation.
"The way they efficiently dismantled, destroyed, and shamelessly discredited these women for speaking their truth,” he said. However, when he was asked if Clinton should have been kicked out of the office, he said no. “I would look at this way. I would never under any circumstances vote for Bill Clinton today,” he said. “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.” Anthony added that he was not pleased to see how Hillary chose to respond to Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault allegations. The 'Parts Unknown' star took to Twitter to express his views but unfortunately, his words were twisted.
“I was really disappointed with the statement. But even by expressing that, the way that my comment was turned, very neatly—suddenly I wasn’t expressing disappointment in her statement; I was blaming her for Harvey Weinstein’s crimes. The way that turned very nicely was a good bit of artistry and deeply frightening to me and really, really…” he said. Harvey's girlfriend, Asia Argento, accused Harvey of sexually assaulting her.
Anthony added that he imagines Harvey having a “massive f---ing stroke,” before falling backward into a bathtub. “He finds himself, um, with his robe open feet sticking out of the tub, and in his last moments of consciousness as he scrolls through his contacts list trying to figure out who he can call, who will actually answer the phone,” the celebrity chef said. “And he dies that way, knowing that no one will help him and that he is not looking his finest at time of death."
