CFN – Today Toronto Mayor Rob Ford called media “Maggots”. Hmm….and he wonders why he may or may not be getting a rough ride?
Mayor Ford is embroiled over allegations that he did crack cocaine with two hoodlums in a photo that was published. One of those in the photo was killed recently as well.
Oddly enough the Mayor was silent until it was announced the seller of the video purporting to show him calling Justin Trudeau a “fag” while hitting the crack pipe has stopped returning calls.
Could Mr. Ford and/or his associates have acquired the video?
Oddly enough Mr. Ford issued a statement around the time that the seller went poof!
He made a point to finally state that he was not an addict; but again read his quote and tell me if you see the missing phrase?
I do not use crack cocaine, nor am I an addict of crack cocaine,
He of course did not state; “I have never used crack in my life.” And he calls media maggots? What would the public say if the media were presented evidence of the mayor of the largest city in Canada in a video smoking crack; ignore it?
His brother,and city councilor Doug, was profiled in the Globe and Mail where it was alleged that he was a guy to go to if you wanted Hashish in Etobicoke where they grew up.
Doug Ford definitely having read the professional media handbook immediately and clearly stated that the allegations were not true.
That of course doesn’t mean that they are or aren’t true; simply that he’s clearly repudiated them.
The brothers taking to their radio show to trash the media surely isn’t a classy or smart move. While their hard core supporters will guffaw and continue to offer blind support surely more questions will be raised and yes; more investigation and media scrutiny of the Ford family.
If you choose to be in the public eye it’s part of the business. Sorta like being in the mob and having police follow you around or occasionally visit your home.
