Anthony Bourdain may be gone, sadly, but he still has plenty to say about current politics.
In Sunday’s final season premiere of his CNN series “Parts Unknown”, filmed in March, the late chef took viewers on a trip to Kenya.
“Today’s Kenya is phenomenally beautiful,” Bourdain said in the episode’s narration. “There is a growing middle class, a highly rated educational system and an enthusiastic and multilingual professional sector.
“Which is to say this is decidedly not a s***hole,” he added, in reference to Donald Trump’s comments referring to some poorer nations as “s***hole countries.”
Viewers on Twitter delighted at Bourdain’s shot at Trump.
Bourdain was found dead in June in his hotel room in France having committed suicide.
The TV personality went on his trip to Kenya with fellow CNN host W. Kamau Bell. The episode was the only episode to be fully completed before Bourdain’s death. Four more episodes will air using clips and interviews of those featured in their respective episode.
“As soon as the cameras are off the crew will be sitting around having a cocktail,” Bourdain said in one scene. “I f***ing pinch myself. I cannot f***ing believe that I get to do this.”
Bell tweeted during the episode’s broadcast, remembering his conversation with Bourdain as “one of the best experiences of my life.”
The final season of “Parts Unknown” currently airing will include the five completed episodes, along with two special episodes paying tribute to Bourdain.
