Reporting with Natasha Korecki
Rod Blagojevich addressed a small crowd outside the courtroom during the lunch break. The first topic -- his wife's new haircut.
"It's beautiful. I say that to her every day -- and I'm not just saying that because she's testifying," he said, laughing. He confirmed that he got a trim, too.
Blagojevich also spoke about a possible gag order and said his lawyers are on the side of the First Amendment.
"One of the things we're fighting for is the First Amendment. That's worth fighting for and that's worth dying for, and that's what we're trying to do," he said.
Then Blagojevich came back to reporters to finish his sentence and make sure everyone got this: "The right of free speech, one of the cornerstones of America."
He was eventually warned by a deputy marshal to stop speaking.
