A jovial Rob Ford tells Fox News that he’s “loving this”

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford laughs during council at City Hall in Toronto, November 14, 2013. Embattled mayor Ford, under huge pressure to quit after he admitted smoking crack cocaine, said on Thursday he was getting help for a drinking problem, but offered no indication that he might step down. Ford also expressed remorse for an obscene outburst he made earlier in the day when denying an allegation he had made sexual overtures to a female member of his staff.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has done a few interviews in the past couple of weeks on both sides of the border.

But his latest, with Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor is a little different in that he's - well, jovial.

If you watch the whole video, you'll notice the interviewer speaking to Toronto residents who, for the most part, seem to be supporting the Mayor.

Maybe that's why Ford is "loving this"?

Ford has become somewhat famous -- if not infamous -- in the United States.

He's been featured on CNN and NBC and, as mentioned in the video, he has been the butt of jokes on shows such as the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Saturday Night Live.

Interestingly, his notoriety bounced to a whole new level, this week, when a Florida sheriff referenced Toronto in a statement after the arrest of a local politician.

According to CBC News, the mayor of Hampton, Florida, Barry Layne Moore, was arrested for illegally selling Oxycodone.

Here's an excerpt from the Bradford County's Sheriff's Office's statement:

Deputies with the PCSO served the warrant and transported the Mayor to the Polk County Jail without incident. Bradford County Sheriff Gordon Smith stated: “This isn’t Toronto. We will not tolerate illegal drug activity, in my jurisdiction, by anyone to include our elected officials.”

None of the allegations against Moore have been proven in a court of law.
