There is something very satisfying about imagining Donald Trump sitting in a crowded jury duty waiting room and trying to relate with us, the common plebeians.

Unfortunately, Donald Trump will almost certainly get out of serving. Here are seven ways you, like Trump, can get out of jury duty:

1. Prove economic hardship.

2. Act stubborn. Show up acting like you know everything before even hearing the case. The more stubborn you can appear, the higher your chances of being excused.

Entrepreneurs: Being stubborn is a big part of being a winner. Don't give in and don't give up!

3. Argue that you can't maintain objectivity.

4. Emphasize and exaggerate your intelligence. Lawyers often want jurors that can be easily convinced.

Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure,it's not your fault

5. Appear overconfident. Say that you'd be an excellent juror because you don't need evidence to reach a conclusion. You just know.

Remember, new "environment friendly" lightbulbs can cause cancer. Be careful-- the idiots who came up with this stuff don't care.

6. Tell them you'd love to serve, but you're moving soon.

7. You can always say you're sick. Very, very sick.

Congratulations! You got out of jury duty. Now you can get back to your day-to-day life of making American great (again)!
