The Tiger King himself Joe Exotic could be pardoned by President Trump while in his final days at the White House. The legal team surrounding and representing Joseph Allen Maldonado-Passage A.K.A. Joe Exotic is "confidant" that he'll be pardoned. Late last year they reached out to the President asking for a pardon, it's looking like it may just happen. A Limo and hairdresser are standing by waiting for the final decision. Joe Exotic didn't want anyone to see him until he had a chance to do his hair and makeup.

Joe Exotic was sentenced to 22 years in prison last January for a failed murder for hire scheme along with several Federal wildlife violations. I can't imagine anyone being unfamiliar with this story, but just in case here it is in a nutshell: Joe Exotic was found guilt of trying to hire someone to murder Carole Baskin A.K.A. That Bitch Carole Baskin. She's a fellow big cat owner and runs a rescue and sanctuary in Florida, the Big Cat Rescue. Her and Joe hated each other and took turns accusing each other of all kinds of crazy things. From mistreatment of the animals to serious violations of Federal wildlife laws.

All of this story played out early last year, or at least that's when most of us found out about it thanks to the Netflix documentary series Tiger King. At the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic with all the shutdowns and quarantining that was going on it quickly became the virtual water cooler topic of conversation. Tiger King somehow became the #1 show or series on Netflix and an international sensation. I have to admit it was a good distraction from all the craziness and boredom that was happen at the time.

Sounds like this story isn't over yet. We could be seeing Joe Exotic back out in the free world, that's if President Trump decides to pardon him. Right now all of his legal team think it's a better than good chance that he'll be freed. We'll wait and see...So what do you think, should he be pardoned? Take the poll:
