    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 !

    Doug Ford is right, unbelievable that a star like Jimmy Kimmel actually apologized. Kimmel a very classy guy and proving he Truly loves Ford. That's why Kimmel had fun with Ford in a good natured way laughing with him unlike the Toronto media that make fun of him in a hateful and vindictive and bitter angry way.
    Hello, stating I did not want to upset Mayor Ford and then offering a peace offer a fabulous 6 minute promotional video of Toronto for the world to see! thank you Mayor Ford! This is an apology but of course the haters and hack full media are too stupid to realize that.
    Haters get your Kleenex out to wipe all your tears because the reason Kimmel apologized is because Ford gave him his highest rating show plus one of the highest rating show of the night in America, Canada and in the World. Funny how this fact was not mentioned by the cheap bitter haters and the press. Are you kidding me , for three days Ford had the whole world talking about Toronto. The entertainment press even stated the biggest story in La was the Oscars and Mayor Ford. Explains why the press from New York, London, Rome, Tokyo, Paris was Los Angeles-Oscars, Toronto Mayor Ford. Ford you looked good and made Toronto look good too this coming from a proud gay loving lattes and live in the city. Vote for Ford

    that was a funny piece with Guillermo or whatever his name is.
    I want Guillermo for mayor. he's definitely way more intelligent than both of the Ford mental cases. maybe Guillermo can give crackhead a job as his driver. i'm sure the fat bambaclot would eff that up also.
    you could of just sent a life size bobblehead of crackhead to LA for the show. wind him up at the back and he just spurts out the same bullsht lines over and over and over that he bullshts here. would of been the same effect. as if the Americans knew half of the sht crackhead was spouting out of his azz or cared.
