Now that Rob Ford is back in the game, can Joe Warmington be far, er, behind?
The answer, of course, is no.
Having built a career sucking up to the rich and powerful, it was only a matter of time before Joe would be tooting Rob’s flute.
The occasion was an accident in midtown Toronto Tuesday in which a woman was struck and killed by a streetcar.
Ford told Warmington that he’d been driving eastbound behind the streetcar when he saw people piling out of it:
“I said to myself, ‘This doesn’t look right.’ There were people exiting the streetcar,” he said over the phone in his first interview since leaving hospital after his cancer diagnosis.
“At first, I thought it was a fight, but then I saw that a woman had been hit and pinned right under it. There was lots of blood. It was not a nice scene.”
“People were upset. We all wanted to help her but there was really little we could do. She was stuck under there. We all felt kind of helpless.”
So Rob did what any self-respecting crackhead would do:
He posed for a selfie with one of his fans, while in the background, the dying woman bled out on the street.
First responder indeed!
