The Tiger King: A fantastic binge-worthy series on Netflix about a man who, before being sentenced to prison, owned a literal zoo, with many, many LARGE cats, is gaining more and more momentum. Popularity is rising, and with that comes some notoriety.
Recently, Don Jr. joked about getting the Tiger King a pardon, saying his sentence seemed a bit “aggressive.”
We’ve been watching this show religiously, and we tend to agree with that assessment. Seems a bit harsh. I don’t pretend to know all the specifics however.
The president’s oldest son was asked about Joseph Maldonado-Passage — better known a Joe Exotic — on Monday during an appearance on SiriusXM’s “Jim Norton and Sam Roberts” radio show.
“He’s asking for a presidential pardon,” Roberts said.
Trump Jr. asked, “I have heard that, is that true? You guys really want it to be true, don’t you?”
Norton and Roberts said that it “sounds true” before telling Trump Jr. how he could make it happen.
Roberts told him directly, “I feel you, Don, Jr., can go in, make a meeting with your dad and go, ‘Look, I know we’re all dealing with corona and there’s a lot going on right now, but at the same time, maybe a presidential pardon for poor Joe Exotic who’s in there?‘”
“Maybe not right now, but I can generally be for this just for the meme,” Trump Jr. said. “And just for frankly watching the media reaction to this thing. It would be pretty amazing to ultimately see that.”–FoxNews
Regardless of the outcome, you might want to take a look at the show. The Tiger King wanted to be famous, and it appears his wish has finally come true.
Catch the show on Netflix. You can also watch Joe’s past recordings for his own reality show on YouTube.
