Rob Ford Loves Rehab, Thinks It's Just Like His Boyhood Camp
The world's favorite mayor was back in the headlines Wednesday, this time for sharing his thoughts on rehab. Crack-smoking, binge-drinking, public urinating Toronto mayor Rob Ford loves rehab and thinks it's just like camp, apparently. Ford entered rehab in late April after possibly being turned away while trying to enter the U.S. In an interview with the Toronto Sun, Ford said rehab was just the bee's knees.
I feel great. Rehab is amazing. It reminds me of football camp. Kind of like the Washington Redskins camp I went to as a kid.
He also said he's making calls to constituents, meaning he's probably in a fairly permissive facility or as the Sun put it, "kind of a working rehab." After seven days in rehab, Ford said he is feeling healthier, learning about himself, and trying to improve.
I do feel bad about what happened, but it might have been the best thing that happened because I am working on getting better. I am working out every day and I am learning about myself, my past and things like that.
We are not sure which "what" Ford is talking about, but it could be the public drunkenness, or the crack-smoking video, or the whole getting stripped of his mayoral powers thing. In the Sun interview, he said his personal tipping point was a sexist, racist rant he made on April 29 at a Toronto-area bar, Sullie Gorman's.
I said to myself, "Am I going to try to cover it up for the rest of your life or deal with it and go to professional help?" I decided to get help.
Ford was not doing a very good job covering it up.
