Toronto mayor Rob Ford denies smoking crack, claims ‘allegations are ridiculous’

An especially stressed-looking Rob Ford wore his signature pink-hued face and a loosened tie to a press conference on Friday afternoon. At said presser, the Toronto mayor denied the existence of the alleged scandalous video capturing Ford smoking crack, which, to our knowledge, is still on the auction block for anyone with six figures to spare. “The allegations are ridiculous,” Ford told reporters as he fumbled a piece of paper. “The Toronto Star going is after me.”

Before Ford found himself in an imperceptible slump, he stepped away from the herd of press. One reporter shouted a follow-up question, asking if the mayor believed the video was a fake. He gave no comment. Watch below.
