Playing the political game

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.
