Watch Jimmy Kimmel Grill Rob Ford on His Drinking

"I wasn't elected to be perfect," Ford said


Jimmy Kimmel is a funny guy, but his interview with embattled Toronto mayor Rob Ford took a serious turn Monday when Ford’s drinking and drug use came up.

“If you are an alcoholic,” Kimmel began, “which, you know, if you’re drinking enough that you can try crack in your 40s and you don’t remember it, maybe that’s something that you might wanna think about – like talking to somebody.”

Ford responded, “I wasn’t elected to be perfect, Jimmy.”

Kimmel also examined some of Ford’s other moments in the Internet spotlight, including a bizarre video of him ranting in what seems to be a Jamaican accent.

While the Toronto City Council has stripped Ford of most of his powers, he is in fact seeking re-election.
