There’s no real point to this post, other than including this wonderful photo of a Presidential candidate reporting for jury duty, thanks to a Tweet of him in Manhattan’s courthouse:
There’s more than one article about the event, such as a nifty USA Today story that gets to how Trump got a fine waived for failing to appear previously when summoned.
And no, in the end he wasn’t seated on a jury. One of the fellow prospective jurors noted that Trump “seemed in deep thought about his campaign. He’s a nice guy, a funny guy. He seemed pretty bored like the rest of us.” This is just one more example of how one of the richest men in the world is running an effective campaign as an “everyman,” a personable fellow with rough edges who just happens to have struck it rich through grit and good fortune.
All analysis aside, the pursed lips in the photo are classic Trump. So classy!
