TORONTO – Toronto Mayor Ford’s apology and the news that Toronto Police have a video that the Mayor claimed in June never existed has put the Mayor in the headlights of comedians. Last night Craig Ferguson, who always states, “Its a great day for America” in his monologue also added “It is not a great day in Canada”. Ferguson then launched into a routine mocking the Toronto Mayor.
The monologue is not available to Canadian viewers from the CBC website. But it is not the only place that the Toronto Mayor and his troubles are being covered.
Jon Stewart on the Daily Show on the Comedy Network did eight minutes on his show last night lampooning Mayor Ford.
Perhaps a saving grace for the embattled mayor is that while the Toronto Police have not released the video that they have in their possession, many of the comedians who lampooned the mayor won’t let their videos be seen in Canada either.
Jay Leno Marks Down Mayor Ford
At the 2:50 mark of his monologue last night, Jay Leno commented on “How many crackheads are there in Canada?”
Mayor Ford says he is going to take on all critics. Sounds like a task almost as big at Toronto.
