Rob Ford is essentially burrowing himself in a deeper political hole as his role as the mayor of Toronto, while becoming the hero of college age kids everywhere with his latest antics. While addressing reporters' allegations of drug abuse and sexual misconduct during a live press conference, Ford went on to say the most epic thing I've ever heard come out of a politician's mouth.
“Oh and the last thing was Olivia Gondek They say I wanted to eat her pussy, Olivia Gondek. I never said that in my life to her. I would never do that. I'm happily married, I've got more than enough to eat at home,” he told a group of astonished and amused reporters. After his controversial words, one reporter can be heard saying “I love this guy!” Despite all of his shortcomings, why do we love this guy? That is because it's a breath of fresh air to hear a politician not sound like an emotionless robot for once in their life. He swears and he gets drunk (sometimes a little too much) like the rest of us.
Ford's wife, Renata ,looked extremely jaded by her husband on Thursday at a news conference where Ford apologized for the language he used. “The revelations yesterday of cocaine, escorts and prostitution has pushed me over the line and I used unforgivable language and I apologize. These allegations are 100% lies.”
Rob Ford has had quite a year, acting more like an ASU student than a politician. With videos of him extremely intoxicated, incriminating taped phone conversations and a lot of sexual allegations coming out. During one of his taped drunken stupors, he threatened to straight up murder someone. “I'm going to kill that fuckin' guy. I'm telling you it's first degree murder...He dies, or I die brother,” he said.
Back in 2010, he was heard during a taped phone conversation trying to score some Oxycontin. “I'll try buddy. I'll try. I don't know this shit, but I'll fucking try to find it.” He added, “Why don't you try to go to the street and score it? Fuck, you know, I don't know any drug dealers at all.” Golden.
Ford has also openly admitted to smoking crack-cocaine after a video surfaced of what appears to be the Canadian mayor doing just that. He finally admitted to doing the deed during another of his infamous drunken stupors.
The Toronto City Council has had enough of his behavior, who have asked Ford to take a break from his mayoral responsibilities to attend to his personal issues. After the Toronto City Council talked to him for nearly an hour, Ford said “I am not an addict of any sort, so I am not quite sure why you are saying you need help.”
The fate of Rob Ford is still to be determined with the council pushing for the mayor to lose his job. Regardless of his fate, Rob Ford's legacy will live on as the most entertaining mayor in political history.
