Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Set 'Jimmy

This ought to be good — embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is set to be a guest on Monday’s edition of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Kimmel has been skewering Ford for months as the mayor has dealt with a series of PR disasters including a video that surfaced of him smoking crack cocaine.

Kimmel met Ford at LAX in a chauffeur outfit on Saturday as the mayor arrived to attend Sunday’s Academy Awards.

    I disagree. He asked the questions everyone wants to ask, and questioned the videos in a humorous way. I saw nothing wrong. Was he mocking the fat slob…absolutely! Ford deserves the ridicule.

    Kimmel had an opportunity to be a gracious host to Mayor Rob Ford but instead chose a pathetic path proving that Kimmel is talentless, tasteless and desperate. The interview signalled a shift in the perception of who Jimmy Kimmel is. Expect his ratings to drop as he is now on the same level as Maury Povich.

    Hurry, let’s move the city so he can’t find us when he gets back.

    Please Rob Ford don’t be high or drunk or try any more Jamaican accents during this taping. And don’t lie about being on the show either – denying it until the tape comes out then saying “oh yes I remember now I did do it”. You’ve embarrassed this city too many times.

      And don’t spend over an hour in the green room washroom, then come back acting like a crackhead. In other words, don’t be yourself. Actually…be yourself. Let the rest of your Ford Nation cult see behind the curtain and expose you for the pathetic excuse of a human being you are. At least your kids love you. Won’t speak on your alcoholic wife/addict sister/enabling mother/bully brother. Do what Amy Winehouse didn’t. Go to rehab!

    Why the F__K is Ford going to the Oscars for??? I hope Jimmy skewers the fat troll! Hell, even Mel Lastman had more dignity.

    • Malcolm says:

      This human turd was elected by the low brow suburban rabble that surround our fast growing and wonderful city. A forced amalgamation by a Conservative provincial leader has resulted in these kinds of jerks being elected, sorry for exposing all of you to such a moron. A resident of the (real) City of Toronto.

      • Big Daddy D says:

        I live in ajax..just east of Toronto..but I work in the city. I worked for the city in 1993. Amalgamation had nothing to do with this fat troll. He was still downing fifths of vodka, and smoking and snorting god knows what back then. The whole Ford clan is a off their daddy’s legacy. Big Daddy Ford would be turning in his grave if he knew how his kids turned out.
