Toronto Mayor Rob "Laughable Bumblefuck" Ford flew to Los Angeles for an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show. What followed was more than a little awkward. Kimmel is a great pains to hide his dislike of Ford, but he's not entirely successful. The hardest part comes at the end, when Kimmel confronts Ford with the fact that he is an out-of-control alcoholic, whose blackouts, binges, abuse and dangerous behavior are putting him, the city, and the people he loves at risk. Ford's total denial is genuinely pitiable. Joey Davilla has a very thorough writeup of the appearance, with links to the other parts of the video.
Kimmel took a moment to wipe the sweat off Rob’s glistening forehead, some of which may have been nerves (perfectly normal, especially if you’re appearing on a live show watched by millions), and some of which may have been from being a massive guy with impulse control issues.
It gets more embarrassing in part 3, in which Kimmel shows a photo of the snack tray in Ford’s dressing room, showing the desserts having been devoured but the vegetable tray untouched, and then marched him to stage right to show him a selection of the videos that made him notorious and asked him to provide some context.
The most telling part of that final segment is the exchange in which Kimmel suggests that Ford seek some professional help. Ford will have none of it, and stays on his campaign message:
Kimmel: “If you are an alcoholic…if you’re drinking enough that you can try crack in your forties and you don’t remember it, maybe that’s something you might want to think about, you know, talking to somebody.”

Pussy Riot’s video for “Straight Outta Vagina” frames the poppy, danceable song with visuals calculated to enrage the Kremlin, with LA’s Ace Hotel standing in for church where various genderbent dancers receive communion while singing the praises of vaginas. Given that the last iteration of this theme landed the musicians in a hard labor gulag […]
