Anthony Bourdain said that it was “really f— frightening” to criticize Hillary Clinton, which he did after her non-apology for her fundraiser Harvey Weinstein, who is charged with rape.
CNN host Bourdain’s alleged suicide in Europe follows this interview at the Coliseum with the magazine Popula. It’s a long and interesting article entitled “Bourdain Confidential,” and it came out Monday.
“Asia feels very strongly that you know, a puritanical or Victorian focus would be a monstrous outcome, um, you know, we have the Deneuve letter and all; it’s really tough finding the middle ground here,” Bourdain said of the MeToo movement.
“But I will tell you that as frightening as that was at times, when I sat there with Asia, as she texted her sisters… watching the Clinton apology on Weinstein, and [Asia’s] watching this statement, there was a lot of anticipation. People were really hoping she’d come out with a… I don’t know. Let’s just say with something different. I immediately tweeted my disappointment, very much shaped by what I saw around me. And I will tell you, that was really fucking frightening, the reaction to that. You know, I voted for her,” Bourdain said, referring to Hillary.
“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…,” Bourdain said.
“I learned a lesson.”
“I got slapped down hard. And it was a chastening experience,” Bourdain said.
Bourdain was dating prominent #MeToo leader, actress Asia Argento, whose participation in occult rituals is well-documented.
