Toronto Mayor Rob Ford with Another Winner!

Posted by Paul Constant on Fri, Nov 8, 2013 at 9:44 AM

CNN has a new video of Rob "I Only Smoked Crack Because I Was in a Drunken Stupor" Ford. What's new this time, Ford? And how do you explain it?

Just days after admitting he had smoked crack cocaine, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford found himself trying to explain more bizarre behavior.

A video obtained by the Toronto Star and released Thursday shows the embattled mayor staggering around and making violent threats about some unknown person.

"I'm going to kill that (expletive) guy. I'm telling you it's first-degree murder. ... He dies or I die, brother," Ford is heard saying in the video.

Ford makes large motions with his hands in the video as he explains what he will do: "When he's down, I'll rip his (expletive) throat out" and "I'll poke his eyes out" and "I'll make sure that (expletive) is dead."

Ford responded to the video shortly after it was released, saying that he was drunk at the time.

"All I can do is reassure the people that I don't know what to say," Ford told reporters. "It's extremely embarrassing. The whole world is going to see it. I don't have a problem with that."

He added, "Obviously I was extremely, extremely inebriated. That's all I have to say."

Keep 'em coming, Ford!
