Obama Got Called For Jury Duty, And He’s Not Even Trying To Get Out Of It

Obama Got Called For Jury Duty, And He’s Not Even Trying To Get Out Of It

 

One universally understood truth is that everyone tries to get out of jury duty, that is, unless you’re Obama. While the concept of fulfilling your civic duty is certainly a noble one, sitting for hours on end in a room full of (somehow always annoying) strangers to deliberate over a small case doesn’t appeal to many Americans. Especially since it forces people to miss work in order to get paid an offensive $17 per day wage, which is honestly a VERY AMERICAN move. ANYWAYS, back to Obama!

According to a report from USA Today the former president got called into jury duty in Cook County Illinois, and rather than make excuses like the rest of us, a spokesperson has confirmed that Obama’s going to fulfill his civic duty.

WE GET IT OBAMA, YOU’RE MORE RESPONSIBLE THAN US!

Due to his high-profile ex-president status, the Cook County Chief Judge Timothy Evans said officials will take extra precautions to make sure Obama is safe. Legitimate threats aside, he’ll probably also need the security to help block all the Chicago area Obama fans from bum-rushing him in the courtroom.

While the details and dates of Obama’s jury duties are still being determined, people on Twitter are already loving the idea of the ex-president hitting the courtroom.

Regardless of the scale or nature, I have a feeling the public will be closely following this case. And for good reason, how ELSE will we get more sweet Obama GIFs?!

I have never been called in any country. I am not sure why.
