Ford takes high road after comment by David Herle, who then issued a half-hearted and cynical ‘apology.’
Following in the wake of Kathleen Wynne’s crazy attacks on Doug Ford, the Liberals are becoming even more unhinged.
Wynne’s campaign co-chair David Herle had the following to say about Doug Ford at a recent panel discussion:
“I think people liked Rob Ford, and I think people think Doug Ford’s a bit of a dick, to be honest.”
Watch Herle’s comments below:
Herle later ‘apologized’ for the comments, but his apology ended up being a cynical attack:
He tried to shift the focus onto Ford, making references to supposed comments Ford had made in the past, saying “No matter how commonplace such conduct might be for Mr. Ford, it is no justification to follow suit. There is an important difference between naming behaviours and name-calling. Today, I used a term in reference to Mr. Ford that was inappropriate and I regret it.”
Ford took the high road by issuing a reasonable and measured response:
“I have thick skin. I’ve been called names before,” said Ford. “But what bothers me the most is what he’s saying, he’s insulting the people of Ontario that want to move this province forward. He’s insulting my supporters that consist of PC, Liberal and NDP (voters).”
Kathleen Wynne has said Herle won’t face a punishment for his comments.
Wynne Liberals descending further into the gutter
With the polls looking bad, the Wynne Liberals are clearly losing their minds. Their big-debt budget failed to gain them support, and they are now launching desperate and crazy attacks every chance they get.
If they had a good record to run on, they would be talking about that. But since their ‘legacy’ is more debt, higher taxes, and exploding energy costs, gutter politics is all they have left.
