As you might have heard, President Trump is apparently having a tiny bit of trouble finding lawyers who want to represent him in the Russia case. In an effort to help the president out, a clever Craigslist user posted a help-wanted ad Tuesday afternoon titled "SEEKING LEAD ATTORNEY FOR DIFFICULT CLIENT."

The job description says the poster is looking for a lawyer "to represent [a] client involved in an ongoing Federal investigation" and adds that a "[w]orking 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." Additionally, potential applicants "[m]ust look the part — Gregory Peck or Tommy Lee Jones type. Prior appearances on Fox News a huge plus."

So what exactly would this gig pay? "Client is a hugely wealthy man," assures the ad's compensation section. "Hugely successful. Everyone says it." Check out the brilliant ad at Craigslist here.
