Joe Exotic Has Limo Waiting As He Expects Pardon From Donald Trump

Joe Exotic Has Limo Waiting As He Expects Pardon From Donald Trump

Joe Exotic has a limousine parked near the prison where he's currently incarcerated in anticipation of a presidential pardon from Donald Trump.

Exotic - real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage - was made famous by Netflix hit series Tiger King and was handed a 22-year-prison sentence in January 2020, having been convicted of two counts of murder-for-hire, eight counts of violating the Lacey Act for falsifying wildlife records, and nine counts of violating the Endangered Species Act.

However, Donald Trump is reportedly due to issue 100 pardons during his last day in the White House today (Tuesday 19 January), and Exotic's team are confident he will be granted clemency.

Private investigator Eric Love, who is leading the 57-year-old's case, told Metro: "This time tomorrow, we're going to be celebrating.

"We have good reason to believe it will come through.

"We're confident enough we already have a limousine parked about half a mile from the prison. We are really in action mode right now.

"I've got make-up, wardrobe, the whole unit that will come up.

"The first thing Joe wants to do, he wants his hair done. He hasn't had his hair done in two-and-a-half years. That's the first order of business.

"Then we'll probably go and get some pizzas, steak, maybe a McRib."

Joe Exotic Is Devastated After Donald Trump Didn't Give Him A Presidential Pardon

Asked why he was so confident Trump would spend his last day in power pardoning Exotic, Love said: "I think the President has sided with us and I believe it will take most of the limelight away from President-Elect Joe Biden.

"Last night, I shot a congratulatory video thanking Donald Trump so we have it queued up and ready to go.

"As soon as we get the word, we're going to execute that video to the White House and thank them."

Joe Exotic Has Not Received A Pardon From Donald Trump

published ata month ago

Exotic might not be the only famous face to receive a pardon.

It's reported that rapper Lil Wayne - who was arrested on firearms charges and faces up to 10 years in prison - might also get one.

Trump recently met up with his advisers to discuss a long list of pardons.

That list, according to Fox News, is thought to be made up of political allies and criminal justice reformers, but could also feature 'high profile rappers' like Lil Wayne and Kodak Black - who is currently doing time for gun crimes.

Lil Wayne - real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. - was arrested at Miami airport after a gold-plated handgun was found in his luggage.

Weezy came out as an unlikely supporter of Trump last year before the November elections. He tweeted a picture of himself with the president and said he supported Trump's work on criminal reform.
