Doug Ford: “You can be racist against people that eat little red apples.”
“You can be racist against people who have a drinking problem. You can be racist against people that eat little red apples.”
—Doug Ford, explaining his assertion that East York teacher Joe Killoran (also known as “the shirtless jogger”) was being “racist” toward Rob Ford (the self-professed “most racist guy around”) during a Canada Day confrontation between the two men. In a video of the incident, Killoran, who has become a minor folk hero thanks to all the publicity, can be heard yelling at the mayor, but he doesn’t seem to utter any racial slurs.
