Rob Ford Today Show

Rob Ford says he still drinks, but is done with drugs

Three months ago Rob Ford spoke with Today Show host Matt Lauer as part of a string of interviews the embattled mayor took after revealing he had smoked crack cocaine. During the segment, Ford dared Lauer to check in on him in five or six months to see if he had implemented the changes he promised to make. Well, it's three months later, and Today Show producers just couldn't wait to get our mayor back on the show.

It's not the most engaging interview you'll ever see, as Ford regurgitates many of the lines we've heard from him before -- you know, "saving tax payers money," "moving forward," "we're doing great" -- but it gets at least a little interesting when Lauer asks about the incident at Steak Queen. Just like he did last time, Ford responds by noting that "he's not perfect," but perhaps more importantly, that Lauer has jumped the gun by interviewing him after just three months.
