Embattled Mayor Immortalized in Comedy Sketch
NBC’s longest-running variety show had a field day with the ongoing crack scandal starring Toronto’s embattled mayor Rob Ford, who was parodied in the opening sketch of this week’s episode.
Ford played by series regular Bobby Moynihan, was bang on with his impression the city’s commander-in-cheif (canadian accent? A bit over the top!)
The NBC comedy show, which airs on Global, opened with Ford (Moynihan) being interviewed by a CBC news anchor (played by Taran Killam) and portrayed the mayor at a press conference cursing at reporters, receiving a crack delivery and dancing with a beer can in his hand before falling onto the podium.
The sketch later portrayed a more confident Ford appearing on “60 Minutes” being interviewed by Lara Logan (played by Kate McKinnon) after saying he wanted to go on a show where people would believe everything he said.
