VIDEO: Rob Ford Takes a Pounding on Jimmy Kimmel Live

VIDEO: Rob Ford Takes a Pounding on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford made a campaign stop in Hollywood.  On Monday, the so-called "crack-smoking mayor" stopped by ABC's late night talk show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live."  While Jimmy suggested he consider talking to someone about his substance abuse, Ford said he wasn't elected to be a perfect person:

"I wasn't elected to be perfect...I was elected to clean up the mess that I inherited and that's what I've done," Ford answered when Kimmel pressed him about his substance abuse problems.

During the appearance, Ford played up the idea that he's a just a normal citizen, who's looking to make the City of Toronto a better place to live, and he says he has nothing to apologize for.

"You know what, the apologies are over, I'm moving on.  People are gonna judge me on my proven track record, and I'm down here because I want people to come to Toronto.  See how good Toronto is," he said emphatically.

Since Mayor Ford's bizarre antics have often been captured on video, Jimmy played back a few of the most widely circulated clips.  Like a good sport, Ford laughed off some of his behavior, while explaining other antics.
