Mayor Ford back in the late-night spotlight

The return of Mayor Rob Ford from two months in rehab brought a smile to the face of talk show host Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night.

The return of mayor Rob Ford from two months in rehab brought a smile to the face of talk show host Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night.
    
Kimmel opened his monologue by telling his audience he felt like the little girl in Frosty the Snowman when Frosty comes back to life, saying he had ''missed that sweaty, pink man.''
    
Like other late night talk show hosts, Kimmel has made Ford a frequent target and even had the mayor on his program to poke fun at him.
    
He zeroed in on Ford's weight loss, asking whether the mayor went into rehab or ''into the woods to give birth to a horse,'' and played a clip of Ford thanking rehab staff with his head superimposed over a muscular, body-builder-like physique.
    
Kimmel ended by offering Ford congratulations and saying ''we'll keep our fingers crossed.''
    
Most other talk shows were on an off night of in reruns, although David Letterman was a rerun from the day Ford announced he was entering rehab.

    lol... Let the circus begin!
    Rob, do us all a favor. Get out of the spot light and focus on your recovery.

    Not surprising that Kimmel is making an ass of himself as usual. He is trying to deflect the shame from his government and politicians. Hypocrite!

      @Mark7 Wrong as always, stupid Mark7.

      Kimmel is a Republican.

      @Real Information Sorry you are so slow of wit. I surmise I needed to put US in front of government for you, son. Witty in your reply you were not. Lame you were. Sigh, some people's children.

      @Mark7 We don't have Republicans in Canada. I think he knew you were referring the US Government.
