I'd Poison the President — CNN Host

I'd Poison the President — CNN Host”

CNN's Anthony Bourdain, who hosts the cooking show "Party Unknown", was recently caught on camera saying that he'd serve hemlock to President Trump and Kim Jong-un if forced to cook for the pair.

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain is in hot water.

Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method.

He also told TMZ that he wouldn't be interested in filming an episode in North Korea because "most of the population are starving". Bourdain has been critical of Trump in the past, and said he would not feature him on his show as he did with former President Barack Obama. He also called Kim Jong Un a "chubby, evil little f**k".

At one point, the paparazzi asks, "if Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a [meal] to mend relations, and they wanted you to cook, what would you serve?" A few social media users were upset by the celebrity chef's comments.

CNN fired fired Kathy Griffin from her co-hosting role on its annual New Year's Eve co-hosting gig in June after Griffin did a photoshoot that featured her holding up a bloodied severed head that resembling Trump.

Bourdain is now the host of "Parts Unknown" on CNN and previously hosted the popular show "No Reservations" on The Travel Channel. When asked in 2016 whether he'd ever dine with the president, he retorted: "Absolutely f-ing not".

"I will never eat in his restaurant", Bourdain told food news website Eater after Trump was elected. "We know him well here".

"I've been a New Yorker most of my life; I would give the same answer that I would have given 10 years ago, when he was just as loathsome".

"I'm not watching CNN again!" said another.

"ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming)" the president tweeted on September 15 at about 7:30 a.m. eastern time.
