A former spokesman for Hillary Clinton had choice words for celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain Wednesday, after he suggested in a tweet that she knew about Harvey Weinstein allegedly preying on women.
Brian Fallon, a former spokesman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told Anthony Bourdain “to eat a scorpion or something” after Bourdain tweeted that Clinton knew more than she let on about Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault on multiple women.
“The Weinstein stories had been out for years,” wrote Bourdain Twitter.
know what Hillary Clinton is NOT? She’s not stupid. Or unsophisticated about the world. The Weinstein stories had been out there for years

This comment did not set well with Fallon, tweeting, “Go eat a scorpion or something.”

Bourdain’s girlfriend, actress Asia Argento, accused Weinstein of raping her.
Clinton wrote her condemnation of friend and large donor Harvey Weinstein in a statement on Twitter Tuesday. She also spoke about how Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault on women made her “sick” to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.
