TORONTO - Former U.S. president George W. Bush has some advice for embattled Mayor Rob Ford.

Bush was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday night and was talking about his heart surgery.

The 43rd president said he “couldn’t believe it” when his doctors told him one of his arteries was clogged following an annual physical.

“I didn’t behave that well when I was younger, like I might’ve smoked some for an example,” Bush said.

His advice for Toronto Mayor Rob Ford?

“Have an annual physical,” he said.
