Ivanka Trump: Rod Blagojevich's Prison Sentence Was Too Harsh (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 8th 2011 4:15PM
Ivanka Trump is sticking up for disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who on Wednesday was sentenced to 14 years in prison on corruption charges. Blagojevich was a contestant on the last season of 'The Celebrity Apprentice,' and during his sentencing, the judge admonished him for appearing on the reality show while he was out on bail.

On 'Good Day New York,' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) Ivanka said the sentence was too harsh. "Fourteen years seems pretty excessive ... that is one stiff penalty. We'll see what happens, but I am definitely thinking of his family at this point," she told Greg Kelly.

Ivanka also previewed the upcoming season of 'Celebrity Apprentice,' even though she couldn't reveal who will be participating. Rumors have been running wild that 'Real Housewife of New Jersey' Teresa Giudice will be battling former mob-wife Victoria Gotti, but Ivanka couldn't comment. She did say that "this is the best season bar-none. People are totally crazy, and there's an incredibly mix of characters." We're fairly certain she wasn't referring to the Republican debate her father will be hosting on December 27.

If Blogo is guilty of this, which he is, where is Oboma and his cronnies? Unless you are total brain dead, you know they were part of this crime. Blogo is their fall guy. Yes the sentance is way over the top and who ever said judges are not crooks also. They just wanted to put a patsey in Obama seat so he would still have control. Come on America, Washington is being run by a band of theives and it's time for real change.
We need to take back our country while we still have one.

well, ii AGREE with her ... Blagojevich was no murderer but he got a sentence that far outlasts that of one who kills, rapes, molests children, etc ... he should be PUNISHED for what he did but anything more than what MURDERERS get is atrocious!

Ivana can't be smarter than the sentencing judge who heard all the testimony. What Blagojevich did was illegal, and as the judge said, would do harm to the state of Illinois. Give us a break Ivana. You should keep your comments to yourself.

Does she not realize that the man tried to illegally sell the vacated seat of the newly appointed President-Elect of the United States of America? It's bad enough that he tried to sell any seat at all, but considering the man who vacated it, did he not understand the implications of what he was doing? Yes, Ms. Ivanka...one must pay the price for power mixed with greed and stupidity.

Donald thinks he should run the country and his daughter thinks she knows more than the judicial system!
