Global cuisine icon Anthony Bourdain railed against former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in an interview with The Daily Mail back in February before his death last month.

“He is a very charming man. I met him. He’s f**king magnetic,” Bourdain said of Bill Clinton.

Of Hillary, Bourdain said, “When you’re in the room, you think, ‘Wow, she’s really warm and nice and funny.’ But the way [the Clintons] efficiently dismantled, destroyed, and shamelessly discredited these women for speaking their truth [about Harvey Weinstein] … is unforgivable,” according to Emily Crane’s article.

Bourdain also called President Clinton “a piece of s**t, entitled, rapey, gropey, grabby [and] disgusting.”

The food connoisseur went on to express his disappointment with the Clintons’ response to the allegations and subsequent arrest of Harvey Weinstein, who was a big supporter and fundraiser of Hillary Clinton.

“People were really hoping she’d come out with a … I don’t know. Let’s just say with something different. I immediately tweeted my disappointment, very much shaped by what I saw around me. And I will tell you, that was really f**king frightening, the reaction to that. You know, I voted for her,” he continued.

Bourdain was found unresponsive in his French hotel room on June 8, where he was preparing to film an upcoming episode of “Parts Unknown.” (RELATED: CNN’s Anthony Bourdain Commits Suicide)
