Trump Fires Blagojevich from ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

Commentary

Now, only a jury awaits our beloved Rod.

From the Sun-Times:

Rod Blagojevich, you’re fired.

Again.

The ex-governor was given the boot Sunday night after he couldn’t muster the magic to give his team a win as they worked to generate buzz for Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter in episode four of “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Blagojevich seemed doomed from the start after Olympic sprinter Michael Johnson called on him to be the team’s project manager. Johnson had been critical of Blagojevich and reveled at the chance to set him up for failure.

Donald Trump was hesitant to fire Blagojevich, saying he thought the impeached ex-governor was afraid to offend potential jurors while competing.

“I think Rod is being overly nice because he has some pretty big things to do when we’re finished with this,” Trump said. “I think he’s in a very tough position. I think you’re a guy with great courage.”

Great courage? Perhaps. If so, he’ll need it in the months ahead.

The party is at last over. The next round will not be televised. It will be Rod before a jury of his peers.

And “You’re fired!” may end up being the nicest thing they say to him.
