Rob Ford's Christmas gift advice: 'Women love money'
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford responded to a U.S. sports radio show's question about what he was getting his wife for Christmas by saying: "Just money, women love money."
Ford made the comment Thursday during his regular phone-in chat on Sports Junkies, on 106.7 The Fan, based in Washington, D.C.
Ford is on the show to talk sports and make NFL picks, but when one of the hosts asked Ford about his holiday gift-giving plans for his wife Renata, he replied:
"Just money. Women love money. Give them a couple of thousand bucks and they're happy. Get some treats on the side obviously for her," he said. "At the end of the day, she wants her cash. So I give her a nice cheque and we're all happy."
When asked what he hoped to get from his wife, Ford said: "She always surprises me. I have a fantastic wife."
The comments come a day after Ford apologized for the second time to Toronto Star reporter Daniel Dale, who had threatened to sue the mayor for comments made on a television interview earlier this month for former media baron Conrad Black.
