Toronto Mayor Rob Ford said in an interview that aired Monday he is “only human” and likes to party sometimes, but he hasn’t reached out to former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry for advice on how to make a political comeback from a crack-related incident.

“No, no, I haven’t reached out to anyone,” Mr. Ford told “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News.

Mr. Barry bounced back from his 1990 crack sting and arrest to be re-elected mayor. He now serves as a member of the D.C. Council in the nation’s capital.

In a lighthearted interview with the show’s Jesse Watters, Mr. Ford said he hasn’t missed a day of work as an elected official and doesn’t pay attention to the late-night jokes at his expense.

“I’m watching hockey, I’m a big hockey fan,” he said.

He also said he doesn’t care for President Obama.

“I’m not a leftie, I’m a righty,” he said. “C’mon, some of the stuff you’re doing down there, to me — are you crazy?”

“The O’Reilly Factor” tracked down regular folks in Toronto to see what they think of their mayor, and the reviews aren’t good.

“He was the drunk girl at the party that everyone thinks should leave, and doesn’t,” one woman said.
