Letterman gets celebrities to do their best Rob Ford

News out of the Rob Ford camp might be temporarily dormant but U.S. comics are still finding new ways to poke fun at our embattled mayor. Last night on David Letterman, celebrities Jennifer Lawrence, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Martha Stewart took turns reciting lines from Rob Ford's greatest press interactions.

The inspiration for the bit came from a new Ken Burns documentary in which all five living presidents read lines from the Gettysburg Address. Sadly, the Rob Ford version is more like a celebrity supercut of Toronto's most famous political scandal.

"Four score and seven years ago" it ain't.
