Donald Trump


Reporting for duty America!

Donald Trump may be a business mogul and reality TV star. But that didn't stop the presidential candidate from fulfilling his civic duty at the courthouse in lower Manhattan.

According to NBC News, Trump arrived a little bit late via limousine Monday morning before heading up the steps into court . He departed just before 2 p.m. and is now cleared of jury duty for six years.

"I have jury duty, can you believe this? I look forward to it actually," he told a crowd at the Iowa State Fair Saturday afternoon. "I just hope they're innocent, whoever it is! I hope they're innocent."

NBC News can confirm that Saturday Night Live star Bobby Moynihan (yes, the comedian who impersonates Karl Rove) was also in attendance. 

Donald Trump, GOP Debate


Trump's latest task comes after a former British TV anchor revealed in a new article that the former Celebrity Apprentice host reportedly pursued Princess Diana after her divorce from Prince Charles.

"Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife," Selina Scott alleged in a column posted in The Sunday Times. "As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment [from Trump], she became increasingly concerned about what she should do."

For the record, Scott and Trump haven't exactly seen eye-to-eye on every issue. After she profiled the businessman in 1995, Trump was quick to call her "a third-class journalist" who "treated me unfairly."

But then again, in his 1997 book titled The Art of the Comeback, Trump confessed his one regret in the romance department. As it turns out, it totally involves a royal family member.

"I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer. I met her on a number of occasions," he wrote. "I couldn't help but notice how she moved people. She lit up the room with her charm, her presence. She was a genuine princess—a dream lady."

Lucky for Trump, he was able to find someone special in his wife, Melania Trump. They have been happily married since 2005.
