Whatever handler thought it was a good idea to send Toronto Mayor Rob Ford to Los Angeles to guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” should really take some time to reflect on their decisions. Even Kimmel couldn’t figure out exactly why Ford agreed, before proceeding to read some of the comments made since it was announced he would appear on the show.
“This is disgusting,” one person said, while another comment went a few steps further, reading, “I hope you remember that clown you’re about to trot out is a very sick and very bad man.” That was just the beginning for Ford, though. Kimmel also showed several embarrassing photos and videos of the mayor, dabbed sweat from his forehead and questioned his workout routine.
How much of it Ford knew was coming is questionable, but he didn’t really have explanations for any of the videos shown.
