Anthony Bourdain, host of CNN's Part Unknown, told a TMZ reporter that he would serve President Donald Trump “hemlock,” a highly poisonous plant if given the opportunity.
Bourdain was approached by the reporter outside LAX airport and asked if he would do a food show in North Korea, to which he emphatically replied “no” — as he proceeded to go on a foul-mouthed rant about North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, calling him a “chubby, evil little F**k.”
However, when asked what he would serve if he were to cater a dinner for President Donald Trump, Bourdain replied “hemlock.”
Hemlock is a well-known poisonous plant found in North America and Europe that can be highly lethal if ingested by humans. It serves basically only one purpose: as poison.
Bourdain is certainly not shy about his hatred for President Trump as he said last year he will never eat in any Trump restaurant because of how much he hated Trump.
“I will never eat in his restaurant,” Bourdain said in December 2016. “I have utter contempt for him, utter and complete contempt.”
Bourdain’s comments are just the latest in a pattern of hateful comments and actions by CNN employees aimed at the president.
Reza Aslan, host of CNN’s Believer with Reza Aslan, tweeted earlier this year that President Trump was “a piece of s---" and "an embarrassment to mankind.”
Most notorious, however, was Kathy Griffin’s beheading video where she showed a severed head of the president. Griffin had co-hosted a New Year’s Eve show on CNN with Anderson Cooper prior to the incident — however, it took the network 24 hours to condemn her behavior and announce that she would no longer be hosting the show.
The Daily Wire reached out to CNN for comment on Bourdain’s remarks and so far has not received a response.
