Rob Ford wants you to know he’s going to the gym.
Matt Lauer interviewed Ford on the Today show this morning to see how Toronto’s infamous mayor is doing. Ford appeared on the Today show just a few months ago, when Lauer traveled to Toronto to chat with Ford after most of his mayoral powers were stripped. (A crack-cocaine scandal will do that). There, Ford issued Lauer a challenge: “I invite you to come back, give me five or six months, and if you don’t see a difference, I’ll eat my words.”
Though it’s been less than six months, Lauer decided to check in on Ford again anyway. And Ford, predictably, tried very hard throughout the interview to avoid any discussion of his substance issues.
