Flashback: Video of Rob Ford with Jimmy Kimmel

Rob Ford, the colorful former Mayor of Toronto, passed away Tuesday at age 46 (Toronto Star article). In the heyday of his antics which drew much media attention, he flew down to Los Angeles to appear on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In this clip, from Kimmel’s Tuesday, March 4, 2014 show, Ford laughed along as Kimmel confronted him with sets of photos showing the very different approaches to his job and constituents compared to the more sedate Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

 

 

Kimmel on Tuesday sent a nice tweet remembering Ford:
