Rob Ford tells his side - minus those tough questions - on his 'Ford Nation' TV show
New York Daily News ^ | November 18, 2013 | Sasha Goldstein

Toronto's crack smoking mayor got his own TV show - and finally could speak his mind without all those pesky reporters asking questions.

The hour-long "Ford Nation" show that aired Monday on Canada’s Sun News Network gave Rob Ford a pressure-free environment to tell his side of the story after spending the last week sticking his foot in his mouth in front of the press and being attacked politically after admitting to drinking too much - and sometimes smoking crack cocaine.

The more I see of this guy, the more I like him.

Reminds me of a fraternity brother I had in college.

The more the U.S. media needles him, even though he is not a U.S. citizen or U.S. politician, the more I like him.

This Ford fellow (and his look-alike, equally maladroit brother) was obviously inspired by the movie "Tommy."

How did these two drunken, crackhead pantloads ever get elected? People up there in o-so-politically-correct-Canada must really really be getting tired of leftists, socialists, and gays, and Muslim lobbies to turn to these two spoiled rich guys, without a GED between'em.

In the interest of hemispheric solidarity, both of these pink obese ass-klowns should be offered the Mayor's job in NOLA or DC. Be 'bout time we had some Caucasian crack ho's runnin' things.

That's exactly what it was.

Ford's chaotic personal habits were very well-known to the voters for years. He'd been on the City Council for a decade. None of this is a surprise to Torontonians.

There's also the fact that he's balanced the city budget for several years running with a healthy surplus, lowered city taxes, and still managed to keep the public transport crowd happy.

This is a typical leftist-media take-down. I'm not defending his drug habit; but there's more to the story than most of the US is hearing about.

If "Tommy Boy" Ford were black and gay, this boring set of facts might be interesting. In a town like Toronto-Seattle, the gay-marriage-bike-path-green people are all that counts.

his reality show has already been cancelled.

1 hour took 4 hours and 8 hours editing.
