So it’s come to this: the headline in a Toronto Sun story reads Mayor Rob Ford defends Justin Bieber.
In an interview with the DC-area sports radio show The Sports Junkies, Ford defended the pop star, who’s charged with assault. “You know what, he’s a young guy. At 19 years old I wish I was as successful as he was. He’s 19 years old guys, think back to when you were 19, you know.” It’s a mix of “Boys will be boys” and “Hey, he’s rich, and above the law!”
Also stepping up to Bieber’s defence is his lawyer Seth Weinstein. Seth, in a not-too-unexpected twist, is also the lawyer for Sandro Lisi, one of Rob Ford’s skeevy still-living-wth-parents friends, and Rob’s suspicious-package- exchanging buddy, and sometimes driver.
