Patti Blagojevich’s spin on her husband’s conviction sounds like a broken record. But Donald Trump doesn’t mind.

Let’s say your husband used to be the governor of Illinois. But now he is serving 14 years in federal prison on what you are convinced were trumped-up corruption charges.

Say it’s less than two weeks before Christmas, too, and the thought of spending another holiday without your partner in both love and power-grabbing is unbearable. Maybe you feel a little guilty that he’s going to be locked up for the seventh Christmas in a row because it was you, after all, who got him into politics.

Say your only hope of getting your husband home is to sweet-talk a man you might otherwise despise. Say this man happens to be president of the United States and he alone holds the key to your husband’s early release. So you hold your nose and do what you have to do. Wouldn’t any spouse do the same?

Let’s say this president happens to be a Republican and your husband is a Democrat — or at least he used to be. But not just any plain old Democrat — he was commissioned and sanctioned by the Democratic machine, which also commissioned and sanctioned your father, a longtime Chicago alderman who, in turn, got to commission and sanction others.
