For some, including Bourdain, whose current girlfriend, Asia Argento, claims she was raped by Weinstein, Clinton came across Wednesday evening as less-than-genuine.
“And I have to say, Hillary’s interview with Fareed Zakaria was shameful in its deflection and its disingenuousness,” Bourdain said on 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.”
“Secretary Clinton was one of the most intelligent, well prepared, well briefed politicians ever. So, yes. I’d hoped for a better response,” he added.
