Former Democratic Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich declared himself a “Trumpocrat” Tuesday night hours after the president commuted his federal prison sentence.
“He’s got obviously a big fan in me,” Blagojevich told reporters at Denver International Airport. “And if you’re asking me what my party affiliation is, I’m a Trumpocrat,” according to NBC News.
Blagojevich was freed from a Colorado prison earlier Tuesday after serving eight years of a 14-year sentence stemming from his conviction on corruption charges.
