crack scandal


WATCH: Doug Ford blows his stack in council defending brother, Mayor charges at opponent

Just when you think things can’t get any more insane in the circus that surrounds Rob Ford, like, you know, the massive protest outside City Hall today, new police files that allege prostitutes have visited the Mayor’s office, and the now doldrum crack cocaine use that Rob Ford has admitted to, things got a little more crazy.

In today’s special debate surrounding Ford’s recent actions his brother, Councillor Doug Ford, blew his stack by repeatedly demanding to know if Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong has smoked marijuana — to the point where the speaker had to shut off his microphone and call a recess.

After this was all said and done the Mayor stood up and charged at Minnan-Wong in a stance of physical intimidation while the gallery cried out that he is a bully.

Minnan-Wong, once a fierce advocate of the Fords on Council, has turned his back on the administration after the most recent slew of revelations surrounding the mayor’s crack use. Minnan-Wong has also expressed some interest in running for mayor himself.

Watch the video and let us know what you think, is this behaviour (even divorced from the context of crack cocaine) acceptable in an elected leader?

WATCH: Ford’s crack admission makes it to Colbert and Jon Stewart

While we’ve been preoccupied with stuff like, oh, the real ramifications of our crack smoking mayor’s admissions and press conferences, it should come as no surprise that the American newsmedia has picked up on our juicy scandal as fodder for the late night  comedy shows.

Rob Ford made the rounds on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Nov. 4 and again last night and was also the subject of a segment on the Colbert Report last night.

Watch the embedded Colbert clip above and the new Jon Stewart clip below and let us know, is this hilarious or deeply embarrassing?
