Social media was abuzz in Canada over the weekend after a bee flew into the mouth of Ontario Premier Doug Ford as he held a news conference.

Ford, brother of the late Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, was speaking to reporters Friday in Dundalk, Ontario, at a briefing about privatizing healthcare when the incident occurred. The bee could be seen flying around the premier’s face before disappearing from view. The development caused Ford to suddenly step back from the lectern and reach into his mouth to try and get the bug out, all while coughing and gagging repeatedly.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Holy Christ, I just swallowed a bee!” the 57-year-old exclaimed before drinking from a bottle of water.

“This is going to be played over and over again,” Ford told reporters who struggled told hold back laughter.

  1. You realize Doug Ford is a Conservative not a Liberal NDP Socialist Democrat. Guess Trudeau must have released him on a special mission.
