CNN celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain told TMZ last Friday that he would poison the President if asked to cater a White House meal.
Well, ok, maybe it isn’t that shocking considering Bourdain is an outspoken critic of President Trump, having once said he wouldn’t have dinner with Trump simply because he’s a narcissist.

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.
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.
