Quoted: Rob Ford’s profanity-littered phone tirade at a Toronto Sun columnist
I am so f – – – ing mad at you right now…I am so
f – – – ing -angry!
—Rob Ford, losing it on the Toronto Sun’s Joe Warmington after the columnist—and frequent Ford defender—slammed the mayor’s reaction to a photo of a sleeping city worker. Warmington, who mined the mayor’s furious phone call for a column today, says Ford screamed that he should “join the Toronto Star” and vowed to stop giving him interviews. (Apparently, the mayor “routinely” phones Warmington, though he has told the writer not to call him directly.) His Fordship also threw in a few vaguely threatening references—“I am not the only one that is pissed at you. There are others”—before deciding he ought to hang up “before I say something I regret.” We would have thought he crossed that line with the first F-bomb. [Toronto Sun]
