Amid the onslaught of #MeToo accusations, former President Bill Clinton faced renewed scrutiny over his affair with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

During one of his last interviews, celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain blasted Clinton and his wife for the “unforgivable” way they treated Clinton’s accusers.

“When you’re in the room, you think wow, she’s really warm and nice and funny,” Bourdain told Popula of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. “But the way they efficiently dismantled, destroyed, and shamelessly discredited these women for speaking their truth.”

While Bourdain said that Congress shouldn’t have impeached Bill Clinton, he piled on the former president’s character:

Bill Clinton, look, the bimbo eruptions — it was f**king monstrous. That would not have flown today. A piece of s**t. Entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby, disgusting, and the way that he — and she — destroyed these women and the way that everyone went along, and, and are blind to this! Screamingly apparent hypocrisy and venality. How you can on the one hand howl at the moon about all these other predators. And not at least look back. 

Bourdain dated actress Asia Argento, one of the many women who accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. Argento claimed that Weinstein raped her, forcibly performing oral sex on her.

Amid the growing outrage toward Weinstein, many questioned how much Hillary Clinton knew given her close relationship with Weinstein.

“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein,” Hillary Clinton said in response to the controversy surrounding Weinstein. “The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior.”

After Hillary Clinton addressed the issue on CNN, Bourdain responded with intense skepticism:

Bourdain described how he watched Argento reacting to Hillary Clinton’s response and how people were expecting something different from her.

“I immediately tweeted my disappointment, very much shaped by what I saw around me,” he said, indicating Argento’s and others’ reactions influenced his decision.

“And I will tell you, that was really f**king frightening, the reaction to that. You know, I voted for her,” he added.

As for Weinstein, Bourdain said he would “like to see” someone kill the Hollywood producer in his jail cell.

“He’s gotta go to some s**t f**king place,” he said after noting Weinstein was eating at restaurants in Arizona. “So Arizona, I mean, as much as I’d like to see him, you know beaten to death in his cell.”
