City Hall

Toronto mayor Rob Ford tweets like mad in LA

Toronto's mayor backstage at Jimmy Kimmel.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti picked a good few days to be in Mexico City on a trade mission (the subject of today's LA Observed segment on KCRW.) Toronto's goofy mayor was in town to do Jimmy Kimmel and take Twitter pictures at City Hall. For instance, he mugged with City Councilman Tom La Bonge and tweeted about it.

And Councilman Mitch O'Farrell.

Ford also did something most Los Angeles reporters have probably never done: observe the proceedings of the City Council budget committee.

And he did interviews, like with CNN and this one at LAX with CBC.

The Jimmy Kimmel episode was scheduled to air Monday night.
