Earlier this year, Anthony Bourdain broke bread -- actually, noodles -- with our current commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama. During a long conversation with Bourdain prior to the election, I asked him how he'd imagine that dinner at a small restaurant in Vietnam stacking up next to a meal with Donald Trump.
"Trump would be interesting," he told me, "because watching him struggle with chopsticks would be pretty fucking hilarious. And he is allegedly a germophobe and he eats his steak well-done. So you know, seeing him at a state dinner -- like, a Chinese banquet -- and trying to deal with the hospitality there would be pretty fucking hilarious. How does he even grab chopsticks with those little fingers?"
