Trump fires Blago from 'Celebrity Apprentice'

Rod Blagojevich has been fired, again.

The former governor, whom Illinois lawmakers ousted from office last year, has now been kicked off NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice."

"Apprentice" boss Donald Trump fired the ex-governor on Sunday's episode after Blagojevich struggled as team leader in creating an interactive display.

As on a previous episode, technology posed a surprising hurdle for Blagojevich. On Sunday's show, he had trouble sending text messages and e-mailing.

Blagojevich's team members complained that he didn't give them clear instructions.

He was ejected from office in January 2009 and faces a federal indictment alleging political corruption in office. Blagojevich has denied any wrongdoing.
