In Hope Of Gaining A Presidential Pardon, Rod Blagojevich Humiliates Himself Defending Trump

Rod Blagojevich must be getting so tired, tired of waiting, tired of waiting for Trump. Still facing 5 more years behind bars and perhaps realizing that it is now or never for him in terms of gaining a presidential pardon, the former governor of Illinois wrote a ridiculous op-ed for the far right conspiracy website Newsmax, favorably comparing Trump's travails with the Democrats to a fantasized way Blago imagines Abraham Lincoln might have been treated if Nancy Pelosi were around in 1860. He poses his belief that Pelosi would have impeached the Great Emancipator.
Clearly Blagojevich wants to catch Trump's attention and hopes the crook president will reward the crook governor with early release from his prison term. My personal guess is that Trump wouldn't pee on Blago if he was on fire, and will enjoy tormenting the ex-governor by throwing hints he will give a pardon but then never do so. Trump has that sort of level of gratuitous cruelty, even towards a loyal bootlicker like Blago.
Blago was of course , a Democrat all his political career, but at this stage his loyalty is for sale to the first person who might get him out of the slammer.
