Short post from me today. Just wanted to share this interview with, former Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s former chief of staff Mark Towhey. Towhey says that the Ford was a better politician than Donald Trump.
I think that Towhey is deluded.
This interview shows what I learned from when I met Rob Ford myself when doing City Idol: Rob Ford was easy to manipulate by men like Towhey. Easy, until he got out of control with his drug use.
But this is not why I am posting the link to this interview. What is critical is the tool that Ford and his puppeteers used to get elected. I would argue that former Mayor Mel Lastman use the same tool: keep it simple, stupid.
Sums up many politicians, it would seem.
