Remember when President Donald Trump tried to denounce Barack Obama’s citizenship? Well, the 44th President is doing what most ordinary Americans don’t care to do — serve on jury duty. If that’s not the mark of an exceptional U.S. citizen, we don’t know what is.
BBC reports Obama has been summoned by Cook County in Illinois to fulfill the non-coveted role of a juror and fully intends on completing his civic duty.
“He made it crystal-clear to me through his representative that he would carry out his public duty as a citizen and resident of this community,” Cook County Chief Judge Timothy Evans said according to the Chicago Tribune.
“Although it’s not a place where the public can earn a lot of money, it is highly appreciated,” Evans continued. “It’s crucial that our society get the benefit of that kind of commitment.”
But don’t worry ladies and gents, despite our sacred 44th’s plan to place himself among the common folk, Evans said proper security measures will be in place.
“Obviously we will make certain that he has all the accouterments that accompany a former president,” Evans said. “His safety will be uppermost in our minds.”
It betta be!
