Anthony Bourdain Donald Trump Feud: CNN Star Blasts GOP Front-Runner
A Bourdain and Trump drama is making headlines. In a new interview, CNN host and globetrotter Anthony Bourdain slammed GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who announced that he wanted to deport all 11 million illegal immigrants living and working in America.
Anthony Bourdain and Donald Trump will certainly not be having a Thanksgiving meal together after the harsh comments the chef made regarding the billionaire and reality star. Last week, Bourdain, the host of CNN’s hit show, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown sat down with Pete Dominick on Sirius XM, and he blasted Donald Trump.
Bourdain, a renowned chef, explained that he was not pleased with the disturbing remarks the presidential candidate made about immigrants. Mr. Trump, who is on top of most of the polls, stated that some of the Mexicans crossing the border are rapists and killers and if he is elected president he will deport all 11 or 12 million undocumented immigrants in country – regardless of how long they have been living and working in America. The former reality star said back in June:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you . They’re not sending you . They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems to us. They’re bringing drugs.They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people! But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting. And it only makes common sense. They’re sending us not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably from the Middle East. But we don’t know. Because we have no protection and we have no competence, we don’t know what’s happening. And it’s got to stop and it’s got to stop fast.”
As the campaign went on, Trump kept insulting immigrants, veterans, women, but mainly Jeb Bush and the media and revealed that a giant wall will be built across the southern border and he will make the Mexican government pay for it.
Bourdain stated that if Trump sends all those immigrants home, most of the restaurants, (and countless hotels and farms) will close. Mr. Bourdain shared:
I grew up in the restaurant business — 30 years in the restaurant business. I came out of, like a lot of other white kids, I rolled out of a prestigious culinary institute and went to work in real restaurants. I walked into restaurants and always, the person who had been there the longest, who took the time to show me how it was done, was always Mexican or Central American. The backbone of the industry – meaning most of the people in my experience cooking, preparing your food. Twenty of those years in this business I was an employer, I was a manager employer. Never, in any of those years, not once, did anyone walk into my restaurant — any American-born kid — walk into my restaurant and say I’d like a job as a night porter or a dishwasher. Even a prep cook — few and far between. Just not willing to start at the bottom like that.
