If you couldn’t tell from before, I like Anthony Bourdain. A lot. I appreciate his honesty and wit, and more than anything I appreciate his gives-no-fucks attitude. He’s been on a Twitter tear since the Weinstein news broke. And when the hits keep on coming (Donald Trump, Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly, Eric Bolling, Bryan Singer, Devin Faraci, Andy Puzder, Casey Affleck, Ben Affleck, Steven Seagal, Oliver Stone, Roy Price, Andy Signore, et cetera, et cetera, et forevercetera) having a loud supporter such as Bourdain is encouraging. Particularly when other male voices have been the weakest of sauces.

He’s also starting to go after the Italian press because #fakenews isn’t just an American tradition:

I think it would be remiss of me not to mention his tweets about Hillary Clinton. She sat down with Fareed Zakaria for an interview and Anthony Bourdain was less than impressed with the result.

In one corner there are people who are upset with these tweets and are coming to Hillary Clinton’s defense. They say that this feels like yet another attack, that this is yet another thing she is being blamed for, and they ask why is she being asked to apologize. In the other corner, others are pointing out that Anthony Bourdain didn’t blame her and he didn’t ask her to apologize, that he’s merely disappointed in the interview, disappointed with the answers she gave.

He does know how to end a good Twitter row:
