The Chew's Michael Symon: Trump Not Welcome At My Restaurants

Michael Symon Says Trump Can't Eat At His Restaruants


If GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump plans on eating in downtown Cleveland for the Republican National Convention, he won't be able to at any of Michael Symon’s restaurants. 

“There’s not a chance I’d let him into one of my restaurants,” the celebrity chef said with laughter during a phone interview with 92.3 The Fan Thursday morning.


Originally calling in to defend the communal seating at Mabel’s, his new BBQ restaurant on East 4th Street, Symon shared how he really felt about the businessman-turned-politician when the topic turned to potential parties during the RNC.


When asked by 92.3 The Fan’s Matt Dery about whether or

not he’s concerned that his anti-Trump comments could turn off potential patrons, he doubled down on his comments.

“Anybody that knows me knows that I’m not afraid to speak my mind.”


Now didn't we have a couple of Christian bakers fined $100,000s for not making cakes for gay couples?  Seems like liberals think they can have it both ways.

It looks like its time to boycott Symon's restaurants and ABC's The Chew.

  4. This is an example of Obama and Hillary's politics. People are free to say and do what they want if it benefits the Democrats. I hope Trump goes to his place of business and he refuses to serve him so he can sue the crap out of him. Come on Trump, shut this big mouth piece of work down.

  6. Double standard eh? It's ok for the left to ban someone for his political association. Where are the Civil Liberty people? They want to protect rights so why is this legal? Now I boycott his show and restaurant.

  7. Very disappointed in your un-American statement. Chefs are not political. Like celebrities, keep with your day job and stop making remarks about politics. You should be ashamed of yourself. I used to like your shows, but this has stepped beyond the boundaries.

  8. LOL. This shirtless, aproned "cook" isn't afraid to speak his mind, but I KNOW I'd be afraid to hear his voice. WHO would want to eat food knowing he might have prepared it in that manner??? Anyway, he's yet ANOTHER coward who's projecting onto Donald Trump because he might lose some unruly, psychopathic patrons who feel TOO superior, TOO entitled to behave properly.

  9. He's a shirtless, probably sweaty ass coward afraid of losing patrons, and assuming what his mind "might speak" is worth hearing. FUGGEDDABOUTIT.

  10. Im so ashamed that I have watched your show most days,if you have a public place of business you have to serve anyone that enters as long as they are dressed decently and not causing a distrubuce, Just because you may not agree with someone is no reason to deny them service the same service that you give to every other customer.

  16. He is just looking for free advertisement, too stupid to realize negative publicity can actually ruin his business!

  17. He is just looking for free advertising, he obviously doesn't realize that negative publicity could ruin his business! Let's help Michael rename his restaurants and give him his free advertisement. Welcome to the Snowflake diner, where we offer a wide variety of cheeses to go with your wine.

  18. Trump can buy his own restaurant next to his and force him out of business. Screw him and his gay self.

  19. I am so tired of people who voice their opinions on politics just because they want to hear themselves speak even when it is stupid. Just because they can get in front of an audience. If you are an actor/actress then act. If you are a chef then cook. So on and so forth. Keep your political views to yourself. I don't care
    what they are. But I can not support you via entertainment or eating out and I will NOT support people who don't keep their views to themselves, because I have that right. Does anyone agree?

  20. I am sick and tired of people who speak to hear themselves speak, especially when it is stupid. Entertainers should entertain and chefs should cook, so an and so forth and stay out of politics. I as a consumer will not be supporting those who have spoken out stupidly. I can watch anything and eat anywhere and because I can do that. I will support others who don't show their stupidity openly. We as consumers should boycott those who don't need to voice their opinions on anything other than what they know and stay within those guidelines. We make them who they are and elevate them. Some should be knocked down a few levels.

  21. Evidently this guy doesn't want to stay in business for very long. That's okay. I'm sure the greasy spoon down the street has better food anyway.

  23. We used to support Michael Symon in all his endeavors, such as his show on The Food Network, The IX Center Food Show, The Chew, and ALL his restaurants... until he rudely made a public statement that Trump was not welcome in his restaurants during the RNC in Cleveland last summer. We will no longer give him our business after he embarrassed our city. If you see this, Michael Symon, know that many Clevelanders think you were very WRONG to do that, and you owe our President an apology as well as an invitation to dinner next time he visits our great city!

  24. We used to support all of Michael Symon's endeavors... his Food Network shows, The Chew, the IX Center Food Show, his social media sites, and ALL of his restaurants. However, since he embarrassed Cleveland when he made the statement that Trump was not welcome in his restaurants and he would not serve him dinner during the RNC last summer, we have cut all ties to anything relating to him. Michael Symon, if you see this post, know that many Clevelanders think you were 100% WRONG to do that and you owe our President an apology and an invitation to dine in your restaurants next time he visits our great city! It's called RESPECT and you should have known better.

  25. Seriously? He says liberals can't have it both ways. The last time I looked it was the Democrats that are following the liberal road. Just looking at this guy (tattoos don't matter to me), I wouldn't want to eat in his establishments.
