Jimmy Kimmel appears on Ford Nation YouTube show

Posted by Derek Flack / April 14, 2014

Kimmel Ford NationJimmy Kimmel actually made it onto Ford Nation, the Ford brothers floundering YouTube show. Dressed in a facsimile of the red and black "magician's outfit" that the mayor wore when he appeared on Kimmel's show last month, the late night host showed off his Rob Ford bobblehead dolls, fielded some inane questions from Doug, and cracked a few jokes at the Fords' expense. There wasn't much to it all, but you can bet that it'll be spun as something pretty major by Ford Nation.

If there's a moment that's worth highlighting, it's when Kimmel replies to a question by saying he was too drunk to remember, which prompts Mayor Ford to chime in that he's "used that excuse one too many times myself." You really could make this stuff up. Watch the rest of the clip below.

Mr. Ford is really boring. He has nothing to say, no ideas, just voting against everything, a real negative.

This is really great. While Chow has been reaching out through the media to Hong Kong and UK voters, Ford has North American voters in his pocket.

LMAO - yeah, bring Jimmy up after you've lost the election Rob. So he can ridicule and laugh at you even more.

What a bunch of idiots

Doug is the creepiest! Why's he trying to take potshots at Kimmel? No class. He was gracious enough to be on your "show". Want a puntz. He's even worse than Rob.

People can call Rob Ford an idiot all you. He definitely does not have my vote but he is no where close to being an idiot. This is a win-win situation to him. Win the election he's mayor of the 4th biggest city in North America for four more years, lose and he uses his publicity to make enormous amounts of money. Kimmel loves to make fun of him but everyone is obviously in on it, he got Kimmel to appear on his hack youtube show. Jimmy Kimmel one of the highest rated late night hosts is promoting Rob Ford, you cant buy publicity like this.

If you read the news... you will see it was the leaders of the Chinese community who announced their support for Chow and encouraged their community to rally behind her. Good on her. Any politician would appreciate this forthcoming approval by an ethnic community, union, etc.

He is most definitely an idiot.
Without his puppet master, he would be nothing.

Poor Jimmy Kimmel is going to have to start drinking to deal with the utter confusion these two cause him. They just keep pretending that they're not only "in" on his jokes, but that the three of them sit around laughing about it all at a bar somewhere, "Isn't it funny that people think you're making fun of us, Jimmy? Wow, if people only understood that it is not a joke--you really do think Rob is the best mayor in the world."

150,000 white trailer park trash twitter followers. Thankfully - they can't vote by twitter.

Lindsay Lohan has over 8,000,000 Twitter followers. People like train wrecks.

Once again, Ford supporters (hard to believe these even exist above the age of 14) conflate notoriety with popularity of municipal governance.

What's hilarious is kimmel's communication skills are on a whole other level than these D-level clowns, yet they keep trying to get the better of him and are consistently ridiculed and embarrassed.

I always say this, anyone who is elected to public office is no idiot. To convince the masses to vote for you even if you're ignorant is genious. And if he if you still believe he's an idiot, he's an idiot sitting on a gold mine of money right now. They elected Bush, twice. We elected Ford, hell for all the people who don't like Harper he's been in office for close to ten years.

You'll have to explain it to me again why I would cast a vote for Ford.
John Tory is running on the same platform as Ford, word for word. He is void of the representable behavior that Ford presents in office, i will exclude Fords personal life for arguments sake.
Why would I vote for a person who by his own admission will not follow and willfully breaks the law that governs his position as mayor.
If I want a fiscal policy as the one Ford wants to delivery, why would I vote for a person that cannot tell the truth.

Guys, Rob Ford is taller and weighs more than Olivia Chow and John Tory. Chow has only a third of Ford's weight.

Have a nice day.

People who believe Twitter numbers mean votes believe in alien deep anal probing and are therefore members of Ford Electroconvulsive Therapy Nation.

It is logical for Mayor Nothing to step down, however. He could start appearing in freak shows around the world with Dan I. Mimico and other freaks from FORDuriNATION and FORDectNATION.

No we're not mad. Not at Jimmy. Personally, I'm mad at The Three Stooges, Elmer Fudd and Baby Wetsy, all members of FordURInation/FordECTnation for supporting Mayor Nothing - including Dan I. Losermimico.

If Kimmel comes up during TIFF it's gonna be awesome! I can just see it now the Ford Brothers and Kimmel toasting the town and stealing the spotlight from all these attention seeking Hollywood actors.

The Ford Show is replete with primitive symbolism. The over fed brothers are clearly fertility figures referring to tribal barbarism. One can envision cannibals dancing around explorers in a large pot of water over a fire. The setting of this show maintains the primitive motif with ppor lighting, sound and makeup. The content is also primitive as these 'brothers' utter words barely recognizable as English similar to Neanderthal tribesmen. Note to production: no Neanderthal was as pink as the one on the left.

Anyone with a brain who voted Ford in 2010 out of anger at Miller is going to vote Tory this time. They want change, they don't want Chow, and the Ford circus thing has become tiresome. John Tory may not win, but he IS going to get a landslide of the intelligent conservative vote.

Sure, Ford is going to get his share, to be certain. I mean, mouthbreathers ain't going to stop replicating their sorry selves anytime soon--I can almost hear them slopslopslopping right now making 1000s of replacement moron babies as we speak. But Ford won't return anywhere near 2010.

Will be fascinating to his defeat speech--he'll blame everyone but himself, it's going to get SUPER bitter when Doug takes the mic.

Fun times, this October.
