Donald Trump's horrible taste in meat temperature is well documented. While dining out at in New Hampshire earlier this year, the Donald ordered his rib-eye charred to a burnt, leathery crisp, incurring the wrath of Internet food snobs in the process. The GOP presidential candidates lack of meat know-how could be the reason why Trump Steaks never caught on ("By far the best tasting, most flavorful beef you’ve ever had," he claimed), but Anthony Bourdain isn't letting Donald off the hook for his culinary sins that easy.
Bourdain, as we all know, is a little bit of a masochist—eating to excess, drinking himself stupid, and existing in a near-constant state of jet-lag for years at a time. So when the New York Daily News caught up with the chef and to find out which presidential candidate he'd like to eat with, Tony chose the self-harm route.
"Trump. But for all the wrong reasons," he said. "I'd like to see him struggle with chopsticks and eat a well done fucking steak."
"I'd like to feed him steak tartare," he added.
In the past, Bourdain has spoken harshly against Trump and his proposed policies in the past, specifically his threats to deport millions of immigrants if elected to office.
"If Mr. Trump deports 11 million people or whatever he is talking about right now, every restaurant in America would shut down,” the chef said last year. "Walking into restaurants, the person who had been there the longest and took the time to show me how it was done was always Mexican or Central America...“[They are] the backbone of the industry."
Having just dined with President Barack Obama in Vietnam earlier this month, we think we know where Bourdain's political allegiance lies.
