VIDEO: Jimmy Kimmel’s over-the-top political ad for Rob Ford’s (fake) D.C. mayoral campaign
Rob Ford was the biggest Canadian news story to hit the U.S. this century (this is not hyperbole) but it looks like Ford fatigue is finally setting in south of the border. Despite a raft of new allegations and outrageous Ford antics, Jimmy Kimmel Live! was the only late-night talk show to devote significant air-time to his Fordship last night. Kimmel’s latest bit—his second of the week—included jabs at Ford’s love of chicken wings, and a fake political ad prepared in case Ford ever decides to run for mayor in Washington, D.C.. The American capital is clearly willing to forgive a bit of mayoral crack smoking, and Ford is already starting to build a Republican base there.
