Rob Ford, Toronto’s crack mayor extraordinaire, has been raising eyebrows around the world with his bawdy antics.
Ford’s story is one for the ages! It all started with the zany Mayor enjoying a little bit of crack. His denial of the allegations launched him into a lengthy PR battle. Claims were made that there was even video of the incident. Crowdsourcing efforts to buy the video popped up. Ford’s denials continued until police eventually uncovered the video (which has not yet been released to the public). He finally admitted he smoked a little crack, and blamed it on the fact that he was drunk.
Ford, who ran as a fiscal conservative and promised to get rid of the freeloaders, has largely embodied the ideals of the Tea Party–Ford has worked tirelessly to cut funding from pro-LGBT groups and functions, like the gay pride parade. His stance was made clear when he voted against funding for an AIDS awareness program: “If you’re not doing needles and you’re not gay, you won’t get AIDS probably.” Thanks for that dose of science, Rob!
He’s a bit of a racist, too! Ford has stated that he “avoids ethnic events” he is asked to attend. There are also some reports of Ford abusing a Pakistani cab driver while yelling racial slurs.
Rob also shows repeatedly that he has no respect for women with his directness in his desire to, as he told a female security guard and a staffer, eat some “box.” Ford claims he has more than enough to eat at home, though.
Most of Ford’s power has been revoked, but he is still in the public eye entertaining the world!
A really awesome person has made an excellent “trailer” for Rob Ford: The Movie (Goosebumps!). This hilarious video was made entirely with clips from Chris Farley movies, and really hits the mark!
So sit back, relax, and enjoy: Rob Ford: The Movie
