TORONTO Mayor Rob Ford was the butt of a few jokes at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday night.
Joel McHale, who hosted the event, made several cracks about Ford, who is currently seeking treatment for substance abuse.
"People say that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is a clumsy mess, but he can't help it, he's a big guy," said McHale. "He's like a bull in a crack-pipe shop."
McHale, who stars in the NBC sitcom Community and hosts The Soup on E!, also told the crowd of journalists, actors and politicians it was a "genuine thrill" to be in Washington, D.C., "the city that started the whole crack-smoking mayor craze."
Marion Barry, a former mayor of the district, served time in a federal prison after being caught smoking crack cocaine in a sting operation in 1990. He was re-elected years later.
McHale also poked fun of Canada as a whole.
"Between Rob Ford, Justin Bieber and Ted Cruz, you just want to tell Canada, 'Hey, hey, relax. We already have a Florida.' "
