Daily show Rob Ford

Daily Show parody of Rob Ford might be best yet

The latest take-down of Rob Ford on The Daily Show has got to be the best yet. Weighing in on city council's vote to strip the mayor of his powers, Ford's bull-like charge at Councillor Pan McConnell and our mayor's appearance on CNN, Stewart doesn't even have to do much more than roll his eyes after each clip to send his viewers into fits. And why not? The whole story is so preposterous that the comedy writes itself.

Thankfully, however, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart does take it a step further. In addition to biting takes on the latest Ford controversies, the bit features a trip to Toronto by correspondent Jessica Williams, who interviews Councillor John Parker, grills a token Rob Ford supporter, and smokes some crack at Dineen Coffee Co. (OK, not really on the last one).

Watch the video below.

Hey SNL, this is how you do Rob Ford comedy. Please take note.
