Donald Trump Freeing Anyone Who Appeared on ‘The Apprentice’

Donald Trump is out here playing Oprah with the pardons he’s handing out to criminals.

Dinesh D’Souza plead guilty to a felony campaign finance violation. He was sentenced to eight months in a halfway house near his home in San Diego, five years probation, and a $30,000 fine. Oh yeah, he often spoke out against Barack Obama.

But I’m sure that has nothing to do with it.

Now, Trump is looking to pardon former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Martha Stewart. Blagojevich appeared on Celebrity Apprentice while Stewart hosted her own version of The Apprentice.

Blagojevich was removed from office in 2009 and is currently serving a 14-year sentence. He was convicted on multiple charges of corruption in 2011. He attempted to “sell” the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama like it was a lottery ticket or something.

Stewart lied about stock sales as part of an insider trading case in 2004 and sentenced to five months in prison. She never faced charges for insider trading. She was convicted for obstruction of justice, making false statements and conspiracy for lying to investigators

Here is the quote from Trump (via Variety) on pardoning Blagojevich. Good luck trying to make sense of it:

Trump told reporters, per a pool report, that Blagojevich’s sentence was excessive and that he had been punished for “saying things that every other politician, you know that many other politicans say.

“And If you look at what he said he said something to the effect like what do I get … stupid thing to say. But he’s sort of saying .. he’s gonna make a U.S. senator which is a very big deal. And it was foolish.”

He said that he doesn’t know Blagojevich, a Democrat, “other than that he was on ‘The Apprentice’ for a short period of time.”

He was on The Apprentice for four episodes before being fired.

If you’ve appeared on The Apprentice in the past, now is the time to go out and commit any crime you want.
