Kathy Shaidle at Five Feet of Fury observed that Rob Ford sounded like he was doing a Hulk Hogan impersonation in the latest "scandal" released of the mayor after it was purchased by The Toronto Star for $5000.
That sounds pretty close. The video was made around the time of Ford's celebrity arm wrestling match with the famous pro wrestler.
In the video, you can clearly hear Toronto Mayor Rob Ford talk about being "in that ring" and when he talks about killing and only needing "15 minutes".
He also says if he wins, he'll "donate.." One of the other people in the room talks about how Ford's opponents "are pros."
Now under what circumstances other than a celebrity boxing match/fight does someone talk about donating???
It does sound a lot like it was in the spirit of his match with The Hulkster.
Ford admits being extremely inebriated when the video was made. But is it so terrible to get drink, in private, and joke around about what you'd do in a celebrity fight, and imitate the bluster of professional fighters?
This new "scandal" with which The Star is trying to outrage Toronto is no scandal.
But after they paid for this piece of nonsense it does firmly establish that The Toronto Star is a scandal rag with about as much credibility and integrity as The National Enquirer.
