Jimmy Kimmel celebrates a Rob Ford Christmas

Posted by Derek Flack / December 11, 2013

Rob Ford Jimmy KimmelJust when you thought Rob Ford had slipped off the radar of the late night talk show hosts, Jimmy Kimmel reminds us that, if nothing else, our mayor remains the most excellent fodder for comedy. Case in point: the way this guy gives out candy at parades, something you'd think would be tough to screw up. Have you ever seen how he does this? He doesn't hand the candy out so much as throw or dump it on the ground beside the kids. As Kimmel says, "it's as though he's feeding pigeons or something." Bingo!

The clip, which aired Monday before eventually making its way online, also features an overdubbed Rob Ford playing the part of the evil mayor (Burgermeister) of Sombertown in the Christmas classic Santa Claus Is Coming to Town. Have a watch.

On last night's show, Kimmel was back on the subject of Ford, this time to thank him for all the wonderful material he's provided talk show hosts this year. By way of gratitude, he offered this 12 Days of Rob Ford clip.

Editor's note: the first clip was removed from YouTube. We have replaced it with a new one, but it doesn't contain the first part of the monologue.

what toronto needs is a retail politician with no larger vision for what a city can be. rob ford is our man: no vision, only taking care of those all important nickels and dimes.

Watched This Hour Has 22Minutes christmas special last night. At the end of the show they did a countdown of newsmakers, and when Rob came up, people cheered and clapped. Unfortunately the punchline fell flat. It was an excellent show this year. Guess these things are just hit and miss sometimes.

Don't believe what you see on Kimmel. He's a prankster that creates fake videos and wants you to believe they are true. Remember the Fiery Twerk? "Worst Twerk Fail EVER"

Jacob, Kimmel may, on occasion, create a fake video or two, but not this time. That man who was afraid of comming into contact with children was our mayor. (Maybe the children can sense a crack addict or maybe one of them will say something out loud, like, "Daddy why does that fat guy stink like uncle Jack after he's had too much to drink?") Bottom line, if our mayor was remotely responsible he'd have long since resigned and got the help he clearly, desperately, needs.
Stop defending him, you sound like a paresitic enabler.

He's quite klutzy, maybe he's worried that if he gets too close to them he might trip and crush them.

Not to defend him, but from what I see of the way most people's brats "behave", maybe he's just being careful they don't bite him.

I was at the parade. The pigeon comment is on point. Like he was throwing bread crumbs at beggars.

None of these comments are me. This will be my only comment. Name-stealing usually results in comments being deleted by the moderators.

Don't worry iSkyscraper. The imposter is obvious, he/she can't fake class.

Neither can iSkyscraper so what's the difference? That and I suspect she says she didn't post when her posts don't get the reaction she wants them to.

No, the writing style is different so it must be someone else appropriating his/her usual moniker.

BULLSHIT!! Most Canadians whine about the cold and having to drive in snow ad nauseam.

I live near Rob Ford and in the 2011 Etobicoke Parade he walked in the middle of the route with a football coat on. He did not wave. He did not smile. He chucked candy. I was at the parade last weekend and he greeted everyone and handed out candy canes, and then he handed out his business cards to everyone. He was using as a platform for re-election. It was the biggest show I've seen in awhile. He needs to GO NOW.

I'd say it would be pretty pathetic if your day actually was ruined by some comment on an obscure internet site.

Don't believe what Jacob posts. His IQ is almost zero, wears a diaper he never changes and Jacob ALSO leaves a pool of drool wherever he goes. Jacob! Go back to your locked ward NOW!

Me-No one reads these posts completely emotionless all the time. It's human to feel agitation when someone agitates you. I never said anything about my day being ruined.
