Food Network star Guy Fieri got cooked by liberal social media for a getting photographed with former President Donald Trump.
The celebrity chef was spotted jovially greeting Trump on Saturday at UFC 290 before Alexander Volkanovski TKOed Yair Rodriguez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fieri fans and critics were up in flames that the pair shook hands and seemed to be having an enjoyable conversation while standing ringside.
Conservative commentator went viral with half a million views for posting a photo of the duo that he captioned: “Trump in Flavor Town.”

Trump haters were quick to try to cancel the Food Network firebrand for hobnobbing with Trump near the Octagon.
“Diners Drive-Ins and Dumps – figures these two would run into each other,” one person replied to the post.
“Literally one of the worst cooks out there hang with worst president ever,” another added.

“Well, this is disappointing. I liked Guy Fieri, but what this tells me about who he is on a personal level and his ethics and morals really bothers me,” someone complained.
“Why would he be caught talking and smiling with Trump? That’s horrible. Ewww.”
“Congratulations to @GuyFieri for completely trashing his brand by gripping & grinning with Trump last night. Your audience/fan base isn’t Trumpers, bruh,” added activist Laura Chapin.
Trump came into the event through a ground-level tunnel with UFC President Dana White, who is a longtime supporter, and gave out high-fives to cheering fans as he made his way to a seat in the first row.
South African fighter Dricus Du Plessis punished Australia’s Robert Whittaker with a TKO in the second round, then shocked fans by hopping over of the cage to shake Trump’s hand.

Trump was also warmly greeted by actors Mel Gibson, Mark Wahlberg, and Spotify podcaster Joe Rogan, who took time out from commentating on the event to shake the 45th President’s hand.
Ally Roger Stone, who was also present at the event, shared a pair of photos of himself posing with the “Lethal Weapon” star and Trump.
“Shooting the sh*t with Donald Trump and Mel Gibson,” the Republican strategist tweeted on Saturday night.

White Stripes rocker Jack White flipped out in the celebrities that were photographed with Trump, calling them “disgusting” in an unhinged Instagram post.
“Anybody who “normalizes” or treats this disgusting fascist, racist, con man, disgusting piece of s**t Trump with any level of respect is ALSO disgusting in my book,” he captioned a carousel of all their snaps with the former president.
“That’s you Joe Rogan, you Mel Gibson, you Mark Wahlberg, you Guy Fieri,” he concluded. “This is a statement from me, not a discussion/debate.”

The post has since gone viral, but White made sure there was neither discussion or debate about it, when he turned off comments on the platform.
Recently Rogan talked about how he believes that mainstream media meddled in the 2020 election.
“I don’t know if there was some shenanigans with the election. I guarantee you it wasn’t zero percent,” he remarked. “How much voter fraud was there? It’s never zero.”
Despite being unsure if the election was meddled with by hacking or voter fraud, he does think that it was “for sure it was rigged by the media.”
Rogan cited Hunter Biden’s laptop and the Durham Report as examples of the media attempting to “manipulate” voters.
“Just those two things, just those two narratives that they knew were not true, that they pushed out in front of everybody and that we know … had to do with trying to get rid of Trump,” he said.
“That is a way you are going to rig an election without rigging an election”

“That is, in many ways … that’s manipulation. It’s manipulation of a public narrative. It’s manipulation of what the people think is real and not real,” Rogan detailed.
“Everybody thought he was in collusion with Russia. It’s what everybody thought.”
