Mayor Rob Ford Makes The Daily Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live

U.S. late-night hosts mock Mayor Rob Ford's drug allegations.

American late-night hosts who first discovered Rob Ford as a result of some of his more innocent blunders are falling in love with Toronto all over again thanks to the latest allegations against our mayor. Last night, both the The Daily Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live had lengthy segments about Ford, and about the video that supposedly shows him smoking crack.

If you missed it all, the Daily Show video is embedded above. The Jimmy Kimmel clip is below.

(For what it’s worth, we liked Jon Stewart’s take on this a lot better than Kimmel’s. The latter relies on a lot of lame, Canadian Bacon–level jokes, though it does win some points back by casting Jim O’Heir, from Parks and Recreation, as ersatz Ford.)
