You give a guy a pulpit and he'll use it.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford took to the airwaves on Sunday and issued an all-out assault on members of the media and city council as he faces calls to resign following allegations he was videotaped smoking from a crack pipe.
Ford and his brother, Coun. Doug Ford, both face separate allegations surrounding drug use and weren't shy about using their Newstalk 1010 radio program to point blame at others across the city.
Rob Ford was less direct about addressing the allegations themselves. He started the show by complaining about the attention paid to the allegations made by the Toronto Star and Gawker, after reporters viewed a video allegedly showing him smoke from a crack pipe within the last six months.
“This is all ridiculous. No matter what you say, I found out to the media, you are never going to make them happy. You could give them 10 bars of gold and they could say, ‘why don’t I get 15 bars of gold.’”
Ford then called members of the media a "bunch of maggots." He followed that up by saying members of city council were "unemployable."
