Someone is trolling President Donald Trump in an epic way. An anonymous poster took to Craigslist trying to help Trump with his failing struggle to land a decent lawyer. Hey, if it works for finding a gardener or a roommate, it can work for this.

 The ad went up on the District of Columbia job board with the header:

Seeking lead attorney for difficult client. (1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW)

The ad lists some of the qualifications needed to secure the position:

Working knowledge of social media, especially Twitter is a plus, as is a better than average knowledge of the adult film industry and a collection of Playboy magazines from 1985-2010. 
 Must look the part - Gregory Peck or Tommy Lee Jones type. Prior appearances on Fox News a huge plus. 

And most important:

Must be prepared to work with a client who is very forceful and opinionated about his defense and is his own best counsel.

The ad in its entirety reads:

Seeking a lead attorney to represent client involved in an ongoing Federal investigation. Must be familiar with laws and procedures around discovery, executive privilege, international financing of licensed real estate, election law and the Logan Act. Working knowledge of social media, especially Twitter is a plus, as is a better than average knowledge of the adult film industry and a collection of Playboy magazines from 1985-2010. Must look the part - Gregory Peck or Tommy Lee Jones type. Prior appearances on Fox News a huge plus.

It really doesn't get much better than this:

People had some suggestions for candidates:

Has Trump finally hit rock bottom?

If nothing else, it gave folks some comic relief:

Even actor Morgan Freeman got in on the joke:

Hey, here's a thought...
