Video: Mayor Rob Ford threatening to “kill” and “murder”

A new video has surfaced in the Toronto Mayor Rob Ford death spiral. And it’s basically just unbelievable that it’s something that happened in the real world.

The video was made secretly with a computer by someone in his office and then sold to the Toronto Star.

Ford rants, “I’ll rip his f***ing throat out. I’ll poke his eyes out  … I’ll make sure that motherf***er’s dead.” “I need 10 minutes to make sure he’s dead.” Then he starts talking about how much he wants to go and beat someone while wearing his underwear.

15 minutes after the video was released Ford made this statement to reporters:

“The Toronto Star just released a video that I was very, very inebriated.”

“All I can say is, again, I’ve made mistakes. I just wanted to come out and tell you I saw a video. It’s extremely embarrassing. The whole world’s going to see it. You know what? I don’t have a problem with that.”

Watch the video below, it might as well be a scene from a Scorsese film. Unfortunately for Canadians and Torontonians, it’s very real.
