“I don’t know Carole at all, but I just think slamming anyone for their political views is tacky,”

“It’s rude. It’s very uneducated.”

For her part, the second-course author has known that political beliefs are best to keep secret or private. She said:

“When Trump was elected as president, I said some nice words about respecting our new president and I got slammed by Twitter, so I really just like to keep my politics to myself now,”

I vote for who I want to vote for and I support whoever I want. The only thing that I can really say and that I constantly repeat is that it’s about what you do every single day. You’re your own politician. I’m honored to have an amazing president. Whether it was Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, that’s not my concern.”
