John Oliver begs Toronto to vote for Doug Ford

John Oliver, the former Daily Show correspondent whose late night show has taken off in recent months, had some stern advice for Toronto voters last night. After running through some highlights (lowlights?) from Doug Ford's campaign, including his notorious statements about the Jewish community and his alleged reference to a Toronto Star reporter as a "little bitch," the host addresses our city as follows:

"Look, Toronto, I think I speak for the rest of the world when I deliver you this message. Please, please elect this man. Sure, his brother was fun, but at a certain point we felt bad for laughing at him. Doug Ford doesn't have a drug problem. He's just an asshole... So, please Toronto, I beg you, let us laugh at your asshole for another four years. Yours sincerely, everyone who does not live in Toronto."

Zing! Watch the whole clip below.
