Toronto Mayor Rob Ford In Drunken Rant
“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.”

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