The Toronto Star obtained a video of a drunk Mayor Rob Ford ranting about who he’d like to beat up. It’s not clear who the object of his ire is.

“I’m gonna kill that f–king guy. I’m telling you, it’s first-degree murder,” Mayor Rob Ford rages as someone in the room secretly uses a cellular phone to film the chief magistrate’s addled tirade.

Moments after the Star published the video online, Ford emerged from his office and apologized.

“The Toronto Star just released a video that I was very, very inebriated.”

“All I can say is, again, I’ve made mistakes. I just wanted to come out and tell you I saw a video. It’s extremely embarrassing. The whole world’s going to see it. You know what? I don’t have a problem with that.”

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford pauses as he speaks to the media at Toronto City Hall November 5, 2013. A new video obtained by the Star shows the mayor gesticulating wildly and shouting gibberish.zoom

“I hope none of you have ever or will ever be in that state. Obviously, I was extremely, extremely inebriated.”
