CNN Host Goes Off On MSNBC For Its Daily Attacks On 'Stupid Republican Morons

“You know, MSNBC, it’s like every show they’re saying, ‘look at what these stupid Republican morons did today."

Anthony Bourdain is known for his culinary skills and love of foods from all around the globe. He also hosts one of the most popular shows on CNN, the Emmy-winning "Parts Unknown," which debuted in April 2013 and regularly wins its Sunday night time slot.

On Monday, Bourdain was the guest on the Nerdist podcast. The conversation about Bourdain's show eventually drifted to a frank discussion of politics, MSNBC consistent railing against the GOP, and how much the chef enjoys hanging out with people with whom he disagrees, including people like Ted Nugent.

Talking about the outspoken conservative rocker, the chef said,"I disagree with Ted Nugent as much and as violently as anyone could disagree on just about everything."

But, he continued, "We both like barbecue. I think I got him to drink like the second beer of his life."

Bourdain's appreciation for differing opinions brought the admitted "New York liberal" to focus on a problem he sees with MSNBC: "I hate preaching to the converted. That's totally boring for me. A nightmare for me would be to sit in a room where everybody totally agrees with everything I say."

"You know, MSNBC, it’s like every show they’re saying, ‘look at what these stupid Republican morons did today,’" he continued. "I’m betting there aren’t a lot of Republicans watching that channel. You’re not changing hearts or minds that way, it just seems kind of pointless to me, to shriek at each other that way, especially on issues like guns.”
