* Comedy gold…
Ex-Democrat Illinois governor turned “Trumpocrat” Rod Blagojevich said he believes current Gov. J.B. Pritzker tried to keep him in jail because the Democrat establishment is “afraid of what he knows” and “what [he] will say soon.” […]
“J.B. called Trump not once, but twice, joining with most Republicans to say, ‘Keep him in, don’t let him out. Keep him in, don’t let him out,’” he told the attendees, his voice echoing and his hands moving excitedly as he recounted the story.
“….Why did he do it? ” he continued, before foreshadowing his willingness to expose the underbelly of his former party:
I truly believe its because J.B. Pritzker, Governor Pritzker and some of the Democratic political establishment is very fearful. They’re very fearful of what I know, and what I can say, and what I’m likely to say, and what I will say soon. That’s why I think that he did that.
This dude has been promising to say what he “knows” for years, but nothing ever happens, not even in his much-anticipated book. Even so, some people still believe him, or want to believe him. He’s a hustler, give him credit. He knows that some of the people can be fooled all of the time.
Later in the above story they have some goof claiming that Blagojevich was very popular when he was governor. Not at the end.
* October 23, 2008…
Overall, the survey of 500 registered likely voters conducted at the end of last week showed a mere 10 percent said they wanted Blagojevich re-elected in 2010, while three-fourths said they didn’t want him back for a third term.
The survey also showed only 13 percent approved of Blagojevich’s job performance, while 71 percent disapproved.
That poll was released almost seven weeks before RRB was arrested.
