Compliments don’t come more backhanded than former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s comments about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, made during Clinton’s appearance on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Having welcomed the corpulent mayor to his show a few weeks back, Kimmel asked Clinton if he’s been following Ford’s crack-smoking, drunken-stupor-fuelled shenanigans.
“I will say this,”; quipped Clinton, no stranger to scandal himself. “He has absolutely destroyed every stereotype people have about Canadians… Canadians are upbeat, optimistic, can-do, they are embracing, they’re inclusive…”;
“Who’s more inclusive than him?”; Kimmel said of Ford.
Added Clinton: “Everything I ever believed about Canadians, ol’ Rob has proved that… stereotypes are not good, positive or negative, I guess.”;
