article imageKeith Olbermann names Toronto Mayor 'worst person in the world'

Toronto - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has been called a lot of things, and now he has something else to add to the list. U.S. political commentator and television host Keith Olbermann called Ford the "worst person in the world" during a segment Friday.
Toronto news outlets were quite busy publishing up-to-date reports on the incident that involved Mayor Rob Ford and CBC’s “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” Mary Walsh. The comedian visited the mayor’s home in Etobicoke and approached him, which led to Ford calling 911.
According to a report last week, Ford had allegedly called 911 twice and started to cuss at one of the dispatchers. Police Chief Bill Blair confirmed that he did not call the operators any names. Ford earlier admitted that he did use the f-word.
On Friday, American left-wing political pundit and Current TV host, Keith Olbermann, called Ford the “worst person in the world” in a segment for his actions last week against the CBC crew.
The mayor edged out Conservative political commentator Glenn Beck for criticizing a war veteran for yelling at New York police officers during an Occupy Wall Street protest. He also defeated Wonderland Party for selling Halloween costumes that Olbermann says resemble clothes children wore during World War II.
“The new conservative executive has had a rough start but never was it rougher than Monday,” said Olbermann, who then showed the CBC clip.
He later quoted Ford’s official apologetic statement, but then iterated Ford’s alleged words by citing the CBC report: “You bitches! Don't you f---ing know? I'm Rob f---ing Ford, the mayor of this city!”
“Toronto’s Rob effing Ford The mayor of his effing city. Today’s effing worst person in the effing world,” said Olbermann in his segment conclusion.
Ford spent the weekend in Guadalajara, Mexico for the closing ceremonies of the Pan Am Games and could not be reached for comment.
