    So, whatever happened to Doug's promised cross-Canada book tour?

    That roadshow tanked when bookstores moved the publication to the bottom shelf of the "greatly reduced" rack!

    One billion copies! A best seller. Believe me.

    Don's not as funny as Rob though; he's actually a lot closer in personality to Doug--a capital douchebag who takes himself way to seriously, while Rob was more akin to an alcoholic, crack smoking pillsbury doughboy with anger issues.

    Rob got the joke. Doug and Donnie don't.

    I was out with a bunch of people the other day and one of them said a couple of funny things when discussing Trump: "At least Rob Ford was a drug addict" and "Imagine if Rob Ford was mayor at the same time Donald Trump was president". I'm pretty sure most of us couldn't handle that.

    I just want to park

    "At least Rob Ford was a drug addict."​

    Because that's something I'm sure I'm going to use somewhere down the line.

    Just thinking Trump is behaving like he's sedated or strictly keeping to a script. Every time I see another speech I expect him to derail!

    My bet is on dementia; it's a good and broad term to explain modern populists. :D

    Probably a Kellie Trump supporter.

    Of course Doug is there, media is around and he wants to stay near the spotlight.

    While changing channels yesterday, I happened across CP20FORD, and (of course!) they were interviewing Thug at the CPC convention. Why they insist on giving this shameless, self-promoting goon a platform as if his fanbase spreads beyond his own monumental ego & his immediate family is a mystery. Does he have any kind of legitimate following at all?

    Meanwhile, like many of you, I'm, er, "enjoying" the continuation of the Rob Ford sitcom relocated to the White House with a different lead. I'm honestly shocked at how similar Trump is to Ford.
