Mayor Rob Ford upset about Kimmel appearance

The mayor appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live early this morning

Mayor Rob Ford is reportedly unhappy about his experience on late night TV.

He appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live early this morning, wearing a black suit and shirt with a red tie.

"Why are you dressed like a magician?" Kimmel asked Ford after the mayor sat down on the guest's chair.

There were then some awkward moments during the long interview.

When Kimmel asked the mayor to stand next to a screen, Ford looked uncomfortable as some of the infamous videos of him were shown.

The host got more serious near the end of Ford's appearance.

"If you are an alcoholic," Kimmel started to say as Ford threw back his head and laughed. "If you're drinking enough that you can try crack in your 40s and you don't remember it, maybe that's something that you might want to think about talking to somebody about," Kimmel said.

Ford replies that he ''wasn't elected to be perfect'' but elected to ''clean up the mess that he inherited.''

Councillor Doug Ford later told Newstalk 1010 host and Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington that his brother, the mayor, is a "little upset" about the appearance, but that "he’ll be back out swinging."

    So Rob Ford thought he was going to get a nice easy ride on Kimmel? This more than anything shows how self-absorbed and clueless he really is.

      @pat c Could not have said it better...L.A taxpayers have no interest about Ford's so called record on his Gravy Train , but they do love to laugh AT him.

    "Councillor Doug Ford, the mayor’s brother, had told the Toronto Sun that Kimmel was too “classy” to bring up Ford’s crack use. He told the Sun after the show that the mayor was “a little upset” — as his brother, speaking in the background, complained of an ambush."

    LOLOL you two idiots didn't know this was an ambush?

    It's The Three Stooges Do #ScrewYou:

    Act 1: Curley skips the Superbowl and does Vanvouver Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk

    Act 2: Curley skips the Oscars and does the Sunset Strip Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk

    Act 3: Curley does TV and skips all notions of sanity and normal human behaviour

    Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk

    Another sad day for Toronto as Moe defends his pathetic brother and tries to rationalize and lie about Curley's behaviour.

    Always thought that Doug Ford was the brains of this comedy act, but how he could not have seen this ambush just shows he is as self adsorbed as his brother.

    After all that he has been through with the media here, one would think he would have learned a few lessons.....just another nail in his political career's coffin.

    Kimmel should thank Rob Ford for his show last night. the rating probably was up due to Rob Ford appearance..

    WTG Rob Ford.. you single handedly brought Toronto to the fore front..
    tourism will be up for sure this summer..

    Ford more years..

      @dama Yes, I agree with you Dama.
      Mayor Fords promotion in his Kimmel show appearance will reap
      benefits for years to come.
      It creates a lot of buzz about Toronto. "Someplace to check out",
      "something to investigate", . . . all kinds of rewards.
      Whatever Mayor Ford is involved with, he creates gold.
      Whether its bobblehead money for cancer charity, or single handedly obtaining millions of dollars in free advertising promo for Toronto.

      Good going Mayor Ford !
