Toronto mayor Rob Ford was simply trying to clean up his city by smoking all the crack cocaine in it, according to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show.

Stewart on Tuesday night was delighted to learn of the eccentric mayor’s latest scandal.

As Stewart showed, the mayor has already been a boon for lovers of slapstick. Not only has he stumbled and fallen while trying to play football, he also managed walk face first into a reporter’s camera.

In addition, he has also been photographed with his arm around a neo-Nazi and praised “Orientals” as hard-working “dogs.”

“You have to wonder, is this dude on crack?” Stewart remarked.

In fact, Ford was allegedly videotaped smoking from a crack pipe. The deputy mayor suggested the video was edited, while the mayor’s lawyer insisted it was impossible to tell what he was smoking.

“I mean, that clear pipe in his hands could be anything, from asthma medicine to Wonder Woman’s famed invisible pipe of truth to a Waterford Crystal kazoo to crack — it could be crack.”
