Tiger King Asks President Trump for Pardon
You didn't think that Joe Exotic would let Carole Baskin steal his thunder, did you? Lately, we are all talking about Carole and her potential dancing skills, so have we forgotten about Joe? Move over dancing Baskin, we need to focus in on what the "Tiger King" star Joe Exotic is up to in jail.
Joe Exotic, who's real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage has reportedly submitted a case for a pardon, which is White House bound according to TMZ. He compiled an astounding 257-page argument requesting a pardon from his 22-year sentence after he was charged with involvement in a botched murder for hire plot.
The 257-page argument also includes letters for Donald Trump Jr. from Joe Exotic claiming that he has been "sexually assaulted by jail staff," Exotic goes on to say that he was also "beat up and tied in a chair to the point the skin came off my arms."
"My hands are damaged from the abuse in jail so I'm sorry for the soppy writing and spelling" Joe Exotic was quick to show his support for the Trump family including the hashtag "#TrumpJr.2024." in his letters. The "Tiger King" star mentions his decline in health and worries that he will die in prison before his scheduled release which isn't until 2037.
Joe Exotic wrote to President Trump, saying, "Allow me to make you proud, to make America proud, to make the world proud. Be my hero please.". TMZ reached out to their federal prison sources about the claims made by Joe Exotic and they said "there was no such assault."
