Crack-Smoking Mayor Rob Ford's Latest Video: He Speaks In Jamaican Accent

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Crack-smoking Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, known for his drunken stupors, has fallen off the wagon.

Hours after new cellphone video taken Monday evening emerged showing the notorious face of Canada`s most populous city swaying and slurring his words while holding court at a fast food restaurant, Ford admitted he was drunk during the incident.

`I was with some friends and what I do in my personal life and (with) my personal friends, that`s up to me. This really has nothing to do with, has nothing to do with you guys,` he told the Toronto Star.  `It`s my own time. It`s my own time.`"

New York Daily News

Before Mayor Rob Ford admitted that he had fallen off the wagon and that the video was filmed last Monday night, the mayor`s brother, City Councilor Doug Ford, implied it was an old video.

Through all of Rob Ford`s drunken antics his brother has been his staunchest defender. I could use a brother like that to make excuses for my shortcomings and mistakes.

"Yeah, Robert used racial slurs in his latest article, but he was in one of his drunken stupors at the time, so it`s all good."

"Robert may have got his facts completely wrong, but he was smoking crack at the time, what do you expect?"

The mayor`s personal behavior is an embarrassment to the city of Toronto, and his affected Jamaican accent is racist and offensive.

Ford needs to get rid of his enablers and hangers-on, admit that he`s an alcoholic, and go to rehab, post haste.

As a blogger and wannabe comic I hope Rob Ford never resigns, he`s the gift that keeps on giving. But the longsuffering citizens of Toronto have had enough of his crack-smoking ways, and for their sake I hope he resigns or is removed from office.
