Rob Ford: Rehab Is ‘Amazing,’ Like ‘Washington Redskins Camp’


Rob FordAfter another video surfaced last week of troubled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford allegedly smoking crack cocaine, Ford announced that he would be taking a month-long leave of absence to get treatment.

Now, Ford says he is having a great time in rehab.

“I feel great,” Ford told the Toronto Sun. “Rehab is amazing. It reminds me of football camp. Kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid.”

We’re not sure how rehab is like a football camp, nor are we sure how the Washington Redskins feel about that comparison. But it is good to see Ford getting help. He told the Sun that he wants to right his wrongs and plans to run for mayor again in October.

“Of course, I am coming back, and I am going to kick butt,” Ford said. “I will be on the ballot for mayor in October, guaranteed, and I will do well. On Oct. 28, there will be no need to change the locks. There will be no need to clean out my office because I am coming back.”
