Chef José Andrés suggests Trump take leadership lessons from Puerto Rican kids on The Daily Show

The Daily Show had already booked chef and philanthropist José Andrés to appear on Thursday’s show before Donald Trump started tweeting his latest baseless, self-exonerating conspiracy theory about the number of American citizens who died in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. (Short version, best read in Grampa Simpson voice: “The Democrats are making up dead people to make me look bad!”) But Andrés’ appearance turned out to be uniquely newsworthy, since the renowned chef was right in the thick of the devastation caused by the storm (and exacerbated by the Trump administration’s well-documented neglect), serving millions of meals alongside his organization World Central Kitchen. There to promote his book about the experience, We Fed An Island, Andrés was asked by host Trevor Noah about Trump’s repeated claims of an “A-plus” handling of the crisis.

“I mean, we should help our president,” Andrés deadpanned, continuing, “We should be showing empathy he does not have.” The chef, an outspoken Trump critic who once pulled out of a deal to open one of his restaurants at a Trump hotel after Trump’s racist attacks on Mexicans, suggested that Trump’s “stupid tweets” hint that Trump does, indeed, possess the human capacity to feel for others’ suffering, but that it “gets lost between his hair and somewhere else.” Solid enough burn, but Andrés knows plenty about helping others, as he and his organization (which also provided food and assistance to people in Haiti in the wake of Hurricane Matthew and Houston after Hurricane Harvey) spent months on the ground in Puerto Rico. (In fact, his organization is reported to have provided more meals that the Red Cross or Salvation Army, not that anyone’s keeping score.) Speaking of the dedication and resilience of the people of Puerto Rico, the chef told of a little girl who was put in charge of a sandwich assembly line, telling the president, “If a 10-year-old can lead a line of 100 people making sandwiches, shouldn’t you be leading better?”

Jose Andres: Ivanka Trump Came to Thank Volunteers at Food Kitchen During Shutdown, 'you Do Not Choose Who Your Father Is'

The Michelin-starred chef Jose Andres has praised Ivanka Trump for visiting one of his relief kitchens, despite his criticism of her father's stance on immigration.

Andres founded the World Central Kitchen, a non-governmental, non-profit organization that provides food to people affected by natural disasters and which was lauded for its work in hurricane-hit Puerto Rico last year.

He is an outspoken critic of the president after he had planned to open a restaurant at Trump's hotel in Washington, D.C. but withdrew in 2016 after the president's comments about Mexican immigrants.

He told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia he had "no choice" to refuse to open a restaurant in the Trump building "because of his behavior towards immigrants to whom I owe where I am today."

The Spanish-born chef, credited with popularizing tapas in the United States, was catering in Washington, D.C. for people struggling with the government shutdown when he was visited by Ivanka Trump.

He said that he was grateful for her presence and did not hold her father's politics against her.

"When we were serving food to officials who had not been paid, Ivanka Trump came to our World Central Kitchen premises to thank the volunteers. She did that despite the problem we were dealing with had been partially caused by her father.

"But you do not choose who your father is and who your mother is. The fact that she had gone there voluntarily I think was an important gesture," he told the newspaper, pointing out that during the shutdown, there were daily queues of up to 12,000 people looking for meals.

However he reiterated his opposition to Trump's wall, telling the Spanish newspaper: "I hope it's Trump's grave. I hope the wall falls on top of his re-election (campaign). Among both Republican and Democrat Senators and Congressmen who are close to the American border, 90% do not support it," he said.

Last November, Andres was nominated as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize by Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.).

In his submission to the Nobel committee, Delaney wrote: "With an incredible spirit and an innovative mind, Mr. Andres is solving one of the world's ancient problems and supplying world leaders with a new road map to provide more effective disaster relief in the future," The Washington Post reported.

This story has been updated in the second paragraph to include the reference to the World Central Kitchen, which was incorrectly called the World Relief Kitchen.

A Chef Said Ivanka Had Him Thrown Out Of A Party, But It's Apparently A "Misunderstanding"

The news coming out of a festive gathering on Saturday night took a tense turn, when celebrity chef José Andrés claimed that Ivanka Trump had personally intervened to prevent him from attending an afterparty event at Washington D.C. restaurant Cafe Milano. But that was only the beginning of the story. Since then, both the owner of Cafe Milano and Ivanka Trump herself have reached out to Andrés to explain that his initial reading of the event in question was faulty.

Late on Saturday night, Andrés tweeted at Cafe Milano owner Franco Nuschese, saying, "Thank you @CafeMilanoDC Franco Nuschese! I was a guest of the #alfalfaclubdinner2018 “everyone” welcome to the after party, but I’m the only individual not allow in? Is because @IvankaTrump told you so? You should be ashamed of yourself Franco."

Nuschese responded to Andrés directly, denying Andrés' claims of having been treated unfairly and of Trump's having had anything to do with it. "You are always welcome at @CafeMilanoDC when we are open and in fact, I will host you and toast to all your successes. I am sorry for the misunderstanding," Nuschese wrote in a tweet, explaining that the restaurant had been closed for a private function and that the dinner and after party had different guest lists. "Also, Ivanka Trump had no role on determining event attendees," Nuschese wrote on Twitter.

It didn't stop there. While Trump did not publicly respond to the incident herself on her Twitter feed, Andrés said that she had reached out in a tweet.

"Thank you IvankaTrump for reaching out. I believe now that you personally had nothing to do," Andrés wrote on Twitter. "Let’s now work on what’s important: Immigration reform, where DACADreamers and Undocumented citizens will become part of a strong USA. With secure borders. With economic growth."

Bustle reached out to the José Andrés ThinkFoodGroup team regarding what exactly Ivanka's explanation of the situation was, but they say are unable to share any additional information.

Andrés then went a step farther in correcting himself after his outburst, thanking Nuschese for his apology as well. "Thank you CafeMilanoDC and Franco for the apology. I understand was a “misunderstanding,” Andrés wrote in a tweet. "Still hard to understand why I was the only person not allowed in! Please people of washingtondc keep supporting a great resturant [sic] institution. Now let’s all be friends. USAforward."

Before Andrés had attempted to smooth over the situation, various other celebrities and public figures had already jumped to his defense on Twitter. Former Mexican ambassador to China Jorge Guajardo noted that Cafe Milano was the "watering hole of the Trump Admin" and that Andrés' being asked to leave was "a new low for Washington." Former White House ethics lawyer Norm Eisen called for a boycott of Cafe Milano, although Andrés reportedly said that he didn't want that to happen.

Fellow celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain had perhaps the strongest response, saying that the treatment of Andrés was "Loathsome. A grotesque betrayal of a true patriot and hero."

This isn't the first time that Andrés has had a run-in with the Trumps. The Trump Organization sued him for $10 million after he pulled out of a commitment to have a restaurant in Trump Tower after Trump made a speech that insulted Mexicans. Andrés counter-sued and the fight went on for two years before Trump settled with Andrés, who has since become a frequent Trump critic.

Andrés is also at the head of the #ChefsforPuertoRico effort, which has provided thousands of meals to hurricane survivors in Puerto Rico. He's criticized Trump over the president's response in Puerto Rico and over his immigration policies as well, so his comments to Ivanka about figuring out an immigration solution are particularly pointed.

Donald Trump says he'll be at World Series, but Nationals say his foe will be tossing first pitch

Donald Trump is scheduled to attend World Series Game 5 at Nationals Park on Sunday, but he won’t be tossing out the first pitch — the Nationals gave that honor is to chef José Andrés, who famously earned the ire of the president by removing his restaurant from the Trump D.C. hotel.

Fans of political drama will look forward to the juxtaposition. Nationals fans aren’t — They’re hoping for a sweep, thus making Game 5 unnecessary.

For his mark, Andrés is with Nationals fans, saying that he is honored to have been invited, but hopes that the fans will be celebrating before he is scheduled to toss out the opening pitch.

Andrés, a naturalized American citizen, is a native of Spain, but he’s been a mainstay in the D.C. restaurant scene for decades.

Celebrity chef and Trump critic Jose Andrés to throw first pitch at World Series' Game 5 — in front of Trump

Batter up.

The Washington Nationals have announced that chef José Andrés will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Game 5 of the World Series — the same game that President Donald Trump says he'll be attending if the series goes to a fifth game.

The celebrity chef has been a critic of President Trump since before he took office. The president announced his plans to attend the game one day before the Nationals shared news of Andrés participation.

Major League Baseball said the decision on first pitches is made jointly between the host team and the MLB, according to the Associated Press.

RESTAURANT HOLDS 'GORDON RAMSAY NIGHT' AFTER PRANKSTER CLAIMS FAMOUS CHEF IS SHOWING UP

“I’m humbled by the invitation, and I realize is a big big big honor but I really hope that by Saturday night all of WASHINGTON will be celebrating that the Nationals are the 2019 MLB World Series Champions…” the celebrity chef wrote on Twitter on Friday morning, confirming the news.

Later in the day, the 50-year-old chef joked that he might need to “practice” ahead of the event.

“Please, I don’t want anyone to be nervous but... anyone has a baseball ball? Just in case, I need to practice...” Andrés tweeted, sharing a selfie as he held a glove.

The famed D.C. restaurateur has been internationally recognized for his humanitarian work in founding World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit that serves meals in the wake of natural disasters, Fox 5 reports.

Andrés and Trump previously feuded when the chef, who operates multiple eateries in Washington, D.C., withdrew from plans to open a restaurant in Trump International Hotel in Washington, following the then-candidate’s controversial comments about Mexican immigrants during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Andrés later criticized the Trump administration's policies on immigration, as well as the federal government's response to the devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.

As for the World Series, Washington leads Houston 2-0 in the best-of-seven series going into Game 3 on Friday, so a Game 5 on Sunday is not yet assured.

Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Thursday that he plans to attend the game at Nationals Park if the series goes to a Game 5.

UPDATE 7:00 p.m.: Despite the response from the restaurant, José Andrés said Sunday evening that he stands by his account of the evening — that Ivanka Trump asked for Andrés to be removed from the party because his presence made her uncomfortable.

UPDATE 2:30 p.m.: Cafe Milano owner Franco Nuschesse tweeted Sunday afternoon in response to claims that Andrés was removed from a party at the restaurant, saying that Andrés “is always welcome” and that Ivanka Trump played no role in the “misunderstanding” that resulted in Andrés being removed.

Ivanka also apparently reached out to the celebrity chef, who said in a tweet Sunday that he now believes she had nothing to do with the incident, and took the opportunity to push for solution on DACA.


Celebrity chef, activist, and Trump agitator José Andrés was reportedly asked to leave a party Saturday night because his presence was making First Daughter Ivanka Trump uncomfortable.

Andrés tweeted about the incident Saturday night, saying, “I’m the only individual not allow [sic] in? Is because @IvankaTrump told you so? You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Former Mexican ambassador to China Jorge Guajardo said on Twitter Sunday morning that Andrés was in fact asked to leave because “his presence made Ivanka Trump uncomfortable.”

According to Guajardo, when Ivanka arrived at the party, Cafe Milano owner Franco Nuschesse asked to speak with Andrés outside and then Andrés was not allowed back in.

Ivanka currently works in the White House, serving her father as an adviser, and Andrés has a testy history with the family.

In 2015, after Trump announced his candidacy and made racist comments about Mexicans, Andrés pulled out of a restaurant deal. He had planned to open a new Spanish-Japanese joint in D.C.’s Trump hotel, and he had reportedly worked on the restaurant design with Ivanka Trump herself. But it fell apart after Trump’s racist remarks, and the Trump Organization sued.

The parties reached a settlement last spring.

In the months since, Andrés has been spending much of his time feeding people in need in Puerto Rico, where the island is still feeling the effects of a devastating hurricane season. The chef developed a network of kitchens, supply chains, and delivery services, serving up more than 2.2 million warm meals to people in Puerto Rico.

As The New York Times put it, “No other single agency — not the Red Cross, the Salvation Army nor any government entity — has fed more people freshly cooked food since the hurricane, or done it in such a nurturing way.”

Andrés has also been vocal about immigrant issues, closing all but one of his D.C. restaurants on a “day without immigrants,” and offered a free drink to staffers of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the midst of a chaotic fight about who the agency’s director was.

Most recently, the chef offered to buy lunch for the winners of Trump’s Fake News Awards.

The White House declined to comment on the record about Saturday night’s party incident, but an unnamed official told Politico that the story was “absolutely not true.”

Trump Organization Settles Lawsuit With Chef José Andrés

The Trump Organization has settled a legal battle with the chef José Andrés that had stretched on for two years. The lawsuit concerned a restaurant deal that Andrés pulled out of after Trump made comments disparaging Mexicans.

Andrés' america fc channel was to be in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., which operates inside the historic Old Post Office. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and both parties declined comment beyond a joint statement from the Trump Organization and Andrés' restaurant group, Think Food Group.

"I am glad that we are able to put this matter behind us and move forward as friends," Donald Trump Jr. said in the statement. "Since opening in September 2016, Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. has been an incredible success and our entire team has great respect for the accomplishments of both José and TFG. Without question, this is a 'win-win' for both of our companies."

"I am pleased that we were able to resolve our differences and move forward cooperatively, as friends," said Andrés in the statement. "I have great respect for the Trump Organization's commitment to excellence in redeveloping the Old Post Office. . Going forward, we are excited about the prospects of working together with the Trump Organization on a variety of programs to benefit the community."

The Washington Post reports that Andrés had already planned a menu for the restaurant, which was to be called Topo Atrio, and that in the spring of 2015, "Andrés and Trump's daughter Ivanka traded design ideas and advanced plans for the restaurant."

But those plans fell apart in 2015, after Donald Trump made disparaging comments about Mexicans, calling them "rapists" and saying that they were bringing drugs and crime into the U.S. Andrés pulled out of the deal, and Trump sued for $10 million in a breach of contract suit.

Think Food Group countersued for $8 million, saying that Trump's comments had hurt business:

"The perception that Mr. Trump's statements were anti-Hispanic made it very difficult to recruit appropriate staff for a Hispanic restaurant, to attract the requisite number of Hispanic food patrons for a profitable enterprise, and to raise capital for what was now an extraordinarily risky Spanish restaurant."

A few weeks before taking office in January, Trump sat for a videotaped deposition in the suit.

The General Services Administration said last month that the Trump Organizations is in "full compliance" with a lease that specifically says no "elected official of the Government of the United States . shall be admitted to any jose andres trump or part of this Lease, or to any benefit that may arise therefrom[.]" That decision has been questioned by many ethics and contract experts.

The Trump Organization is reportedly looking to open a second hotel in Washington.
