Bourdain a liberal, but has had enough of left’s ‘utter contempt’
Famous chef Anthony Bourdain is an outspoken liberal, but he blasted the “self-congratulatory tone of the privileged left” on Thursday for making it harder for Americans to find “common ground.”
CNN’s “Parts Unknown” host recently said he has “utter contempt” for President-elect Donald Trump, but in a new interview with Reason magazine, he sounded off on his ideological allies’ for denying opponents “basic humanity and [the] legitimacy of their views.”
“The utter contempt with which privileged Eastern liberals such as myself discuss red-state, gun-country, working-class America as ridiculous and morons and rubes is largely responsible for the upswell of rage and contempt and desire to pull down the temple that we’re seeing now,” the chef said while promoting his new cookbook, “Appetites.”
Mr. Bourdain singled out Bill Maher of HBO’s “Real Time” as epitomizing “insufferably smug” liberalism.
