Rob Ford To 'Sports Junkies': 'Women Love Money'
Apparently the Sports Junkies is where Ford goes to share his views on the psychology of women.

A few weeks back we discussed Rob Ford’s newest media gig: as a guest commentator on Washington D.C.’s 106.7 the Fan show, the Sports Junkies. In his first appearance on the show, Ford rankled Torotonians and women throughout North America when he told the guys at the Sports Junkies that women select their fantasy sports players based on which players are “the cutest.” 

Today Ford took to the Sports Junkies for another appearance, and once more offered tone-deaf generalizations of women. After sharing his NFL picks for the week, he was asked what he plans on getting his wife for Christmas.

“Just money,” Ford replied. “Women love money. Give them a couple thousand bucks and they’re happy. Get some treats on the side, obviously, for her. At the end of the day, she wants cash. So I give her a nice cheque and we’re all happy.”

Well, at least he kept his wife and women chatter PG this time.
